Kiran,
Windows XP not able to access SATA hard drive without driver. So it will not recognize your HDD if its of SATA interface.

  • If you can enter in BIOS setup, find out SATA option and if you find make it disable. Then try to install.
There are also other ways to fix this problem, if you want more help Just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

Problem booting into xp home edition on laptop!


Hi Andrew,

Before you install XP check the memory, harddrive, cddrive is getting detected in CMOS or not. What about the data in your harddrive?
connect the harddrive to another PC and copy the Data from the drive. If not you will lose all the data on the harddisk if you install the XP on the same disk.

If you had mentioned the system configuration, i would have told whether you can install XP or Not. Since its a laptop and just 5 years old i guess you can install XP on that.

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

Im using hp dv6700t laptop,i want to install xp on my laptop


Your laptop has a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't recognize those drives cause the operating system came out before those drive were made.

Follow these steps I found thru google to get windows xp sp3 to recognize your drive:

You'll have to use a program to do this but people explain how to do it on that page plus the program is free.

How t install windows xp on compaq laptops 104 108 tu


Have a bootable operating system disc. Make sure you have set your boot sequence in your bios: 1st-CD, 2nd-Floppy and last Harddisk drive. To go to your bios, when rebooting your system, press your Del key continuosly until it opens you to your bios menu. Save and exit after setting your boot sequence.

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

"Non-system disk or disk error replace and strike any key when ready".


If this error occurs you open the cabinet disconnected the harddisk data cable for few seconds and reconnected the harddisk data cable and bot it will work.
