  1. Hi, my Fujitsu laptop came with a German windowsXP SP2 Cd that loads just fine. But I need to install English XP, but the RAID/SATA drivers are not included in the CDS except the Fujitsu German XP cd. I have been able to download the VIA drivers for the SATA controller.
    how do load these drivers ,so XP setup will see my HDD?

    You need to put the drivers on a floppy and I really doubt your laptop has a diskette drive :p

    AFAIK you can always switch Windows from a native language to English after install.

    But if you insist.. How about you use the German CD until it asks you for the location to install and then switch over to the English CD?
