Setup did not find any hard disk drivers installed in your computer (vista & sony v.)

  1. Dear all,

    I recently bought a laptop, Sony Vaio VGN AR31S, with VISTA preinstalled... Due to this I could not get a couple of softwares to run (like AVID, video editing programme) so I made a partition where I tried to install XP PRO.

    However a text that says: "Setup did not find any hard disk drivers installed in your computer" pops up when I try to install XP PRO on my VISTA preinstalled Sony Vaio laptop.

    I called Sony and they said it should be possible to have both OS (VISTA and XP PRO) installed at the laptop (even though they only could give help & support for Vista since it came with the computer) but when I try to install XP I only get the "Setup did not find any hard disk drivers installed in your computer"…

    Do any one had a similar problem and know if there is a possibility to get around this problem?

    Thousands of thanks to everyone,

    Kind regards,

    Rodri (rodrigoferrada@yahoo.com)
