How do you intend to get XP to use that?
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00810334 among others note recovery media which should avoid you learning about XP, SATA, and the troubles folk report.
But to write more means I would be duplicating the web.
The Windows XP disk I have used for years tells me that it cannot find a hard drive in my HP 6910p laptop. I previously had XP on this laptop and installed Windows 7 beta to give it a try. It ran OK. I got tired of seeing messages to upgrade so I decided to return the laptop to XP. Since then I have not been able to install XP because I get an error that no hard drive is found.
I bought a new drive and get the same result. I am able to run the HD diagnostic in the BIOS and it says the drive is OK.
Any suggestions to fix this?
