Hi I have a Toshiba Sat Pro L40 notebook. I am trying to load Windows XP Pro but when it trys to access the disc a mesaage comes up saying cant find disc. I have purchased a new sata hdd and the messgae still comes up. Do you think it is a bios issue?

Thanks for your help.

If it's a SATA drive then Windows XP wont see it unless you load the SATA drivers during install at the prompt. You'll need a Floppy drive to install them or a "Slipstreamed" XP CD containing the SATA drivers.
