by aek1976 / July 21, 2007 4:37 AM PDT

I bought a new laptop HP 6575us with windows vista (BIOS phoenix). and I prefer to work with XP , I tried many times to install XP but in the process to install it when the system try to search for the HD it couldn,t find it. I'm sure that there are some attribute in the bios I have to change their value. But this version of bios doesn't show this attribute. what can I do to see this attribute? and I have another HP nx7300 in its bios it appears this attribute and I installed XP with changing this attribute.

I'm going to keep this short.

Why? Because we have lengthy discussions in the Vista forum about this.

Quick. Find the SATA DRIVER DISKETTE and use an USB FLOPPY drive so you can tap F6 and supply those needed drivers for XP SP2

Also, if you don't have a XP SP2 CD, this usually fails.

Remember I didn't duplicate all the other items from the other discussions in the Vista forum. There's more to be written but I'm stopping with this.
