    What do you mean "No... I couldnt install it"... What errors or what happened when you started the install?

    Well the instalation is not starting the computer just restarts after booting and starts all over again, the instalation of XP, I managed to format the C:/ partition,, I tried 2 versions of windows, student edition, and another one so the windows should be ok...

    When installing XP on SATA HDD you have to press F6 at the beginning to install the drivers, you have to get them on a floppy disk and fallow the instruction on XP.

    Windows vista and 7 they dont need them.

    maybe that's the reason why you cant or couldn't install it
