I have been looking for sata drivers for my laptop HP DV5 1253cl , but I cant find .
Plz Help me
What OS are you using?
I use windows 7 but I am tring to convert to XP . So i need sata for xp .
Go to the bios (restart your computer and tap f10)
Navigate to configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting
If there is an SATA setting, disable it, press F10 (save) Restart computer.
Re-enter the XP disk and and continue the installation process.
If this does not work you need to include more info on your problem .
Thanks friend , but there is no sata option on the bios .
During XP installation process , there is message appears say that " windows can not find any hard disk "
I think I have to integrate sata drivers with XP disk , so I am looking for these bloody drivers .
Sorry i dont answer over the weekend. Which version ofthe XP cd do you have?
Is it OEM, FULL and which SP is built inn.
You need to get SATA drivers from HP site for your DV5-1253CL to install them during Windows XP Setup.
I have windows XP Pro SP2 , an SP3 . I try to install one of them
I know , but I can not find these drivers !!
Well I've checked HP and they aren't offering any SATA drivers, the url is:
However, by the way, why would you want to go back to XP? Reason I am asking is because I was recently I was going through some information on HP site (somewhere) and they said they will soon stop putting out XP drivers for any of their hardware ..... so this may be the case in this regard as well.
Lastly, if you can still boot into windows can you give me your notebook's motherboard details? e.g. make/model etc (e.g. use CPUZ to get it)
I am using widows 7 ultimate , but lots of old programs do not work in it and webcam does not work in messenger.
I make a report a bout my laptop , you can go through it
Alright, here is Intel's URL for G45 express chipset family for notebooks.
There are drivers for various OS available there; including SATA/Matrix Raid drivers for XP.
I downloaded but it was EXE not ZIP or RAR , so how can I integrate EXE with XP CD ?
There is a program called " nlite " used to integrate sata drivers with XP CD , but it does not support EXE .
I need this driver in ZIP or RAR file to integrate with the XP CD ,
Does that exe unpack itself e.g. like the nvidia geforce drivers into a certain folder?
Try this link from Intel
The file above contains the Intel® Matrix Storage Manager Floppy Configuration Utility. This utility will create a floppy disk containing the RAID driver files for installation on a 32-bit operating system. This floppy can be used to pre-install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver during the F6 portion of Windows* setup.
