Some time ago there was a friend who came to ask for help. He had just bought a new laptop without an operating system. He had already tried to install Windows XP operating system on notebooks, but always alone can not. He said that after the drive was not detected aggrement process. The notebook finally got to my table.
Initially I also tried to do the same to ascertain what really happened. But apparently that is exactly true of my friend. Finally, I try to get into the BIOS, check the specifications and see, apparently this notebook SATA wear.
Previously I had installed Windows XP on a desktop PC with a SATA hard drive and managed. But then I use a SATA driver diskette default PC. In this case it seems it is not possible for me to do, as well as no SATA driver, this notebook also does not have a disk drive.
Finally I tried googling, and meet the N-lite application. With this application we can do a re-bundling of Windows XP. With N-lite we can add a specific option in the installation process, better patching, drivers, etc. hotfix.
To re-installer bundled Windows XP, you must have:
1. Installer Windows XP,
2. Driver SATA accordance with the specifications of the notebook / desktop,
3. CD blank
Okay we start ..

After you select a single driver or multiple drivers, you will be prompted to specify the location of the driver concerned. Determine the location of your SATA driver, and then click OK.
After the process of determining the location of the driver before, you will be faced with many choices SATA drivers. Please adjust to your SATA type. If you are not sure which one, you can choose all the drivers that are displayed. Then click Next.
