Having problems with your Gateway M-6834 Notebook ?

Change geteway laptop from vista to xp

\015 If i change the bios to disable sata raid can i load XP. and if so what do i do about the drivers\015

Answers :

Yes you can but disable the SATA in the BIOS first and after Xp is installed you can install the SATA driver.
\015\012
\015\012XP does not have a SATA driver or a SCSI driver on the CD and you need to interrupt the install process to insert this driver.
\015\012Leave the BIOS set to SATA, download the SATA driver and create a floppy with the SATA driver. Boot up the Windows XP install disk and when it asks for a a hard disk driver press F6 (I think it is this key, you have to be quick) insert the floppy with the SATA driver.
