Forget XP and install Windows 7. It is nearly impossible for the average person to install XP on these newer laptops. Even if you patch the Windows XP install CD with the SATA controller you will have missing drivers for ALL the Motherboard chips.

Good Luck
I replace the original hard disk drive with new one but still I cannot install Xp. Also I tried to install Windows 7 but when I install the drivers like Audio, Video, Network, etc.. it fails. What is the possible solution for this to install Windows 7?


Disbale SATA Port From BIOS Now you can able to install XP SP2
How can I disable the SATA port from BIOS? It is disabled.
