I have an Acer laptop. In the course of formatting & installing XP Pro, the laptop declared that it couldn't find the hard disk and that setup would close.

Any ideas?

I have an HP s3220 came with Vista i am unable to load WXP the MOBO doesn't have WXP drivers available also it only had PCI Express low profile slots so standard hardware wouldn't fit the slots.

IDE or sata drive?

If sata you need to load the drivers from a floppy at the F6 prompt.

pk46 i assume you are asking a question, although i (and others) have no idea what it is and by putting it into someone else's thread is "highjacking" if you have a question post a NEW thread with a relevant title so we can help...
