If you have already enabled it in the bios this means that the drive may not be formatted yet. So what you do is you go to the control panel then to administrative tools then go computer management. After that click on disk management. Then format the appropriate drive. Make sure its not your main drive you are formatting. Also make sure that the drive letter assignment is set to a different one as your main drive.

Bios reconizes new hd drive but xp pro does not


SATA HARD DRIVE - XP INSTALLATION
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Cannot see HD in toshiba satalitte l40170 in booting


In some markets the L40-170 is sold without an Operating System.

I assume this is in booting off a Windows XP CD, as Vista, Win7 and Linux (Ubuntu) will recognise the HD on boot.

The L40-170 has a SATA-Hard drive with no compatible mode. WinXP will not natively recognize it.

You need to download the SATA driver from Toshiba-Europe and either:

a)Place it on a USB floppy disk and install it when the Windows installer prompts for external drivers. (This is unlikely to work unless you have a Toshiba branded device)

b) Integrate the sata drivers into a windows installation using software like nLite. (You might as well integrate all the L40-170 drivers and the XP service packs at the same time.)

Caution: Don't use software to extract the drivers off a working machine, the drivers required for windows installer are different from those required by the OS. Rather download them from Toshiba.

Help me to install WinXP in a Gateway Laptop that came with SATA HDD


you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.

The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.

1 download and install nlite
2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files)
3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think.
4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.

this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by

My installation stops


well, you must provide more information, for example WHAT MESSAGE you are gettin in that windows installation.

Things I need to know:
1. Are u installing WinXP for the firs time?
2. Are u using a NEW HD?
3. Is that HD SATA type? or SATA2?
4. do you know what partition and formatting is?

I will help you if you provide me that information. For now I will assume the following and tell you what to do in that supposed case:

you get a message that tells you tha you have no Hard Disk or that system cannot detect any HDs... If thats so and you are using a SATA Hard Disk it surely means that your motherboard does not offer automatic driving for SATA so you will need to load the driver for that SATA HD from a CD or a Floppy that must come with your motherboard... I you dont have this you can download the driver from Internet... If your HD is IDE, NON SATA you have a different problem so Please let me know, I will be waiting for more precise information.
