Hello,



I just wiped my lap top due to a virus.I used Killdisk.

It's an acer aspire 57152.

I tried to reinstall xp,which is halted by a message stating that no installed hard drives were detected.

Is slipstreaming xp with the oem drivers the only solution?

If this is the case,are you able to step by step advise me?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Solution 1:

Just change the SATA mode in BIOS. But the performance decreases.

Or

Try this 1

Solution 2:

1) Download nlite software & install it
https://www.nliteos.com/download.html

2) Download SATA Driver from this link
http://global-download.acer.com/...

After downloading ---> right click on "AHCI_Intel_v7.5.0.1017_XPx86" zip file

--->Select "Extract to "AHCI_Intel_v7.5.0.1017_XPx86" (Note : You can use

winrar to extract the files)

3) Place the "Windows XP" cd in the drive.

4) Open nlite application---> click on "Browse" and navigate it to your cd drive

that contains xp cd placed in that drive. ----> then it asks you where to save the

files ----> just navigate to your desired location ---> click on "New Folder" button

and select that folder --->click on OK---> Now it copies the windows xp files. After

that click on Next--->Next.

5) In task selection --->Click on "Drivers" and "Bootable ISO" options -->click on

"Next"

6) Now click on "Insert" ---> click on "Multiple Folder"----> Navigate to the driver's

extracted location and select the folder "AHCI_Intel_v7.5.0.1017_XPx86"

---->Click on "All" button--->----->Click on "OK"--->in "Text mode integration

options", Select all the drivers and click on OK--->Click on "Next".

7) Click on "Yes" to start the process. Then click on "Next".

8) In "Mode" option select your choice whether you want to make image or burn

it to cd.

9) If you want to make ISO file then click on "Make ISO" button

10) After burning this slipstream xp, now try to install it.

Good luck.
