Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

Dear Sir I'm unable to install the Windows Xp in my new laptop i think this problem is with sata HDD so can i download the drivers and install in my laptop


Answers :

XP does not have the drivers needed for the SATA drives for the newer HP laptops. Either you need to "slipstream" the installation to contain the drivers using something like Nlite (free software) or you need to go into the BIOS and set it to HD compatibility mode. If you set it to compatibility mode, you should be able to install XP without any additional drivers
Check in bios settings the sata hard disk detect or not.if not detect then u cant install. Reset your bios settings to defaults settings then save and exit.
\015\012also check your sata option in bios is enable.try in both situation sata enable and then try sata disable.
