If you are having problems installing windows 7,you might wnat to go into your bios main screen and see if your hard drive(sata mode) is set to IDE.If so,set it to AHCI mode,as any operating systems above windows xp will not install on IDE mode.Hope this solves your problem :)

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

Trying to install vista 32 bit on my Gateway DX 4720-03.Vista won't install because it can't see Hard drive. How do i disable ahci or sata mode in the bios or is there a work around to install Vista32.


Vista will have the drivers necessary to identify SATA/AHCI controllers, built-in by default. It would not be necessary to turn the AHCI mode 'off' or to 'ATA' mode (unless you get a 7B or inaccessible boot device BSOD). Check if your system has a RAID configuration, in which case there may be a 3rd party supplied RAID driver that you need to install first. Also, check if the HDD cables are connected properly & the HDD is detected in the BIOS (System setup screen) first.

Reinstalled windows xp profesional after hd crash. Did not have the original acer aspie 5100 recovery disc to install. Now the cd dvd rom is not recognised by laptop


if you originally had Vista on then the bios is updated from the older XP bios and wont see the drive, check here for bios downloads, or put Vista back on.

If you have a full XP disc you will need to do a full format and installation, do not use somebody elses restore disc as it's not the complete windows that you will need.
