HAving trouble installing XP on a Gateway mx6960

\015 Ok, here's the rundown; 1) Have a friend who asked me to install XP back on her machine, she'd had fedora9 which I have no problems with, but it was installed on the proprietary HDD, so she was told to buy a new hdd to put xp on. 2) Everytime I try an install it gives me a 'cannot locate HDD please check to make sure its connected and blah blah blah. I know it's mounted correctly because using a bootcd I have it starts, it just won't let me install XP. 3) I've been told its because the XP install disc I have does not have sata drivers. So I used nLite compiled the correct drivers to the install, it loads fine, then gives me the same problem right b4 the install process.Any ideas?\015

Gateway 450ROG laptop audio problem. I have installed XP on this machine 3 times, each with SP1, SP2, and SP3 before loading any drivers.

The soundcard works just fine under linux using various live cd and HDD installs so I do not think it is a hardware problem. Any ideas? The drivers are not an installable .exe package, but just r
