Hi and Welcome!

most likely, the Sata controller of your computer is set to AHCI mode, which is not supported by XP install discs (unless there are Sata drivers integrated).
You need to change the Sata operation mode to “IDE” in Bios in order to get your XP Install disc working.

As alternative, you may consider installing a Virtual Machine software (like Virtual PC or Virtual Box) onto your Vista computer and install XP within that Virtual Machine. That way, you avoid trouble finding XP drivers for your physical computer.

Virtual PC and VirtualBox are both available for free from MS (VirtualPC) or Sun (VirtualBox).


Alternately, you can slipstream the SATA controller driver into a copy of your windows XP disc so that it loads the drivers, and detects the SATA controller.

There are loads of guides on the net … or you can use this one that i found in 0.0001s on google, according to google

Hi ,
when i open the Setup ther is No option in Computer to change the Sata opration to IDE Mode,
what i do.
Basicaly my Bios Version is F.3B.
and Computer is G60-235DX Notebook PC.

Then think about the virtual computer thing. (easier)
Or build a XP install disc with integrated SP3 and Sata drivers for your motherboard chipset. (more complicated)


Use nLite to slipstream SATA (AHCI) drivers and integrate SP3.
