Hello,
Recently I bought one new HCL C2D Laptop with 160GB SATA HDD with PHOENIX BIOS ,In BIOS I change the SATA0 Mode as IDE/AHCI/Disable but even after it is not detecting HDD during WINXP Installation.
When I am loading the XP by selecting AHCI MODE ,it is giving Hardware Error during instalation of XP.
Is any need to SATA Driver for the LAPTOP ?
If any driver needed then where I get the driver ?

Hello you should change the SATA operation to IDE, i think you disable it... this is quite normal that you won't be able to install XP on the hard drive

Set the SATA priority to IDE!

Hello,
In BIOS ,there are 3 options -IDE,AHCI and Disable .I tried with IDE option as well as AHCI and Disable option also but prob not solved.
