Hello,
As of now i have windows 7. if i tried to install windows xp i am getting following error.
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.

Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer - supplied diagnostic or setup program.

Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3

pls advice what i should do?

Hi,

Just change the SATA mode to IDE/Compatible Mode in BIOS. But the

performance decreases.

or

Let me know the manufacture name and model number to find the sata drivers.
