  1. hi guys It's a long time I had a problem on installing windows xp on my computer
    Since I got a SATA hdd
    the problem is that It says you don't have a compatible Partition.
    I think because I Created the partitions of my (right now two) SATA HDD(s) over windows via Partition Magic
    Right now what should I do, to have a Good partition(primary, windows compatible) over DOS
    cause I had Removed my IDE HDD
    and also I don't want to loose my other partitions(DATA) I just want to remove(Format, Fdisk) One Partition
    and Also If the Size of the required Utility is more than a floppy plz a cd-rom support startup link for download
    and my problem is something else plz tell me
    I also tried to install something called raid, but no success this time it says no HDD detected(I pressed F6 and changed BIOS settings)
    thanks guys
