Hello,
I am running Vista and I cannot modify my HDD at all to change it to IDE.

Any help would be appreciated

Sorry I don't understand the question. What are you trying to do?

My laptop won't boot up and I get "No hard drive found" I had read in previous replies to change the hard drive in the bios from SATA to IDE. But I'm not sure how to do that

Your hard drive most likely needs to be replaced. BIOS settings are specific to the manufacturer of the BIOS and/or the laptop. So I can't offer exact instructions.
