As of now I have windows vista OS. 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.
While booting press F10
then a new dos type of window(blue color) will open
select the "SYSTEM CONFIGURATION" command
then "DISABLE" the "SATA NATIVE SUPPORT"
then again press F10 to save your changes
I am sure for the Laptop guys this will surely work
