Hello :flowers:

I got problem while i want to reinstall my XP :thumbsup:

When insert cd everything is fine, all drivers needed to load window setup.

then when setup starting, a message appear that my hardrive is not found :trumpet:

and suggested to press F3.

I tried it may time but same problem always appear;

Any software that may cause this like vmware or ?


Note: Im installed XP SP2 and want to install XPSP3 Slipstream.

Do you have a SATA-harddrive? Then you will have to load the drivers separately or integrate them in your XP installation CD (you can do that using nLite), since the XP-cd does not have the drivers needed for most SATA-drives.

Sorry, I dont understand what you want to tell here. You know you have a SATA drive?

System manufacturer and model?

Motherboard manufacturer and model?

You have a valid Microsoft XP install CD and license?

Well...the problem may be your slipstreamed CD.

I suggest that you use the disk to install XP with SP2...then just install SP3 as a separate item (after a successful boot).

Thx for suggestion ur :thumbsup:

Now i believe that may my XP SP3 CD doesn't contain needed driver by my Desktop PC. It works when im reinstall my notebook downgrade from vista.


But, there is any chance to fix it via bios setting :flowers: ???

I had check my bios setiing on integrated peripheral (Award bios)
then on controller there is option to disable SATA controller..

Is it works ?

If your harddrive is SATA you cannot disable your SATA-controller. The only way to install XP is to slipstream the SATA-driver in the CD.

But is still not clear to me if you have or not have a SATA-drive.

That doesnt mean always you have a SATA drive installed.
Check under disk drives in the device manager what harddisk you have installed (if you are not sure, just copy all the devices you find there and post them).

Hi Wanda,
I cannot find the exact specs of your computer on the Biostar driver site.

The following SATA/RAID drivers I have found

ftp://ftp.biostar-usa.com/drivers/IO/VRAID_DRIVER_V550B.ZIP
