go to BIOS and disable anything that says SATA. or download windows Xp dark edition version 6,  it has drivers for almost any system, doesnt require activation keys and supports SATA drives.

get it here:








as you can see its in 7 parts for easier download. after downloading all put everything in one folder and use winrar to unrar the files. it will automatically compact to just 1 file. the password for the files is www.area51warez.info

enable file extensions in your system (if its off) by going to Control Panel>Folder options>View>, uncheck HIDE EXTENSIONS FOR KNOWN FILE TYPES.

now go back to the file you unrar'd and right click, select RENAME, and add .uif at the end of the file name.

now download Magic ISO here:


and install.

next place an empty CD in your CD drive, run Magic ISO, click FILE, select BURN CD FROM ISO, navigate to the uif file you downloaded and burn in your cd drive.

reboot your system with the CD in the Drive and install Windows XP Dark Edition SATA Version.

PS: you don't even have to reinstall drivers as the cd will do it all for you automatically.

goodluck and cheers.
