Re: hardisk driver problum



Probably because the notebook hard drive is SATA and XP does not detect SATA drives without the driver. Seeing as the notebook came with Vista, the SATA driver might not be available, but if you find one at the notebook manufacturer's website, you'll have to download it onto a USB flash drive and when XP asks for it, tell it where it is.

Otherwise you'll have to stay with Vista or wait till Win7.
