With the help of the os cd XP sp2 when i was installing the os.after the F8 AGREEMENT it showing on the display that there is no drive to install and when i press ESC key no options partions of the harddisk is viewing.so, i am forcely to quit the installation process.
the error it is displaying is BOOTMGR is missing.I have installed the laptop harddisk in another pc it quite comfortably installed xp2.when i replaced the harddisk into the laptop.the windows xp booting logo is displaying and suddenly Blue screen error is on the display.Then i contact to hardware customer support then they suggest me to install the windows7 operating system.when i installed win7 o/s system it is working fine.but i am not in required of win7 os because my applicatons are not supportable to win7 o/s.it should be xp sp2

Hello,

Try this 1

You are not suppose to install the Windows XP by connecting to another PC.

Even after successful installation, when you are going to connect your hard drive

to your laptop you will be getting a blue screen or OS getting restarted after the

windows XP Logo. This is because of the differences in the motherboard. At that

situation you can try the repair option.

You are getting a blue screen saying "No drive to install" because SATA drivers

are missing in your present Windows XP CD which is getting failed to detect

your hard drive. In such cases, go to BIOS and change the SATA mode to IDE.

Most of the laptops have such options to change their SATA mode.

Good Luck

Windows XP does not have the drivers for the enhanced SATA controller on your laptop. Some laptops have a BIOS option where you set the controller to "IDE" mode from "ACHI" mode. If you can't find this option then you need to find a Intel SATA driver that you can install when Windows XP asks you to press F8 to install RAID drivers.

This driver might work:

It does not work to install XP on one computer and then move the drive to another computer. Windows XP is customized to the EXACT hardware found in the first computer if the two computer don't have the same hardware then this hard disk transfer will not work.


Good Luck
