  1. Hi All ,
    Just having a go at reformatting a Acer Aspire t630 acquired from an auction no software ,problem being is there is no sata in the bios only ide and the floppy drive unit is cactus so i cant load the sata drivers i downloaded from acer web site .
    I have put in a ide hard drive and installed windows xp pro to that but at this point have no idea how to get the sata drive online can i use a generic sata driver to get it up and going ? The sata driver from acer is just a driver file not a setup one if that makes sense hope i have given you enough information
    Regards herbster
