Hello,

I have Compaq's CQ40-144TU laptop with Vista OS. Now I want to install XP and tried to change BIOS setting but could not found SATA Native Support option to enable. And when trying to install it shows some version problem. Please Help....


Thanks,
Abha

Download the SATA driver from this location http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3687645&prodNameId=3687667&swEnvOID=1093&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ob-64232-1

then Google "nlite" for instructions on "slipstreaming" the driver ins your Windows XP CD


Good Luck
