Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
So, im tired of vista, like everybody else. So i wanted to install xp.
So no problems at all, i start to reinstall XP like ive done hundreds of times on my stationary, but then...
Well the thing is it Says, "cant find harddisk", and then all the stuff about remember to turn on your harddisk and stuff.
So i looked at your (actually very informative) post about how to solve this, but i cant seem to find the place to edit the SATA harddisk
Heres a little description of what i see, since that usually helps quite a lot:
The wellknown BIOS: Main, Security, Diagnotics, System Configuration and lastly exit.
So i pick System configuration, since thats the only logical option (ive checked all the other stuff to ofcourse, but i still cant seem to find it)
But the only options i get is: Language, Button sound, Virtualization Technology, Processor C4 State
No SATA stuff at all, can you please help me ? ^^
Go to manufacturers web site download raid drivers, specifically the F6 disk driver and make a floppy with it. When you start xp cd it will say press F6 to add disk drivers, hit F6 and wait until it asks for floppy. If you don't have a floppy, get one, because if you need the driver, it is a difficult process to make it work without floppy driver disk. Some manufacturers have a way to do this with a memory stick, but I have never had much luck that way. The last way is to create a new xp disk with the drivers slipstreamed in. You can get free nLite software to do that at http://www.nliteos.com/
