Disable SATA discovery in the BIOS and you should be set to install. Re-enable when youre done installing.

Hello to all,:smileyhappy:

        I figured out the problem is the CD because I use  Microsft Window XP Home Edition..   Does anyone know where to download the Microsft Window XP Service Pack 2 DRIVER for my PC because the lenovo personel give only one CD the Lenovo Driver Pack v1.5 for Vista and I hate using  Window Vista.. Thanks for the little help...

if u got windows vista its better u make recovery cds it will be too late if some time later u wish to use vista once more,..there's no need to disable sata or any kind as such urs is a pata i think because i too use 3000h series system.for your xp woes i think its better to run the mem test once.u can get it from microsoft

http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

pls check the results for three or more rounds..it is recommended by microsoft to run memory diagnostics before installing sp2
To run Windows Memory Diagnostic, you must reboot your computer with the disk or CD-ROM on which you installed Windows Memory Diagnostic in the drive. After the reboot, Windows Memory Diagnostic will load and its interface will appear. After loading, the first test pass will begin, using the default standard test suite, and continue until complete, unless Windows Memory Diagnostic is either paused or exited. Once the first test pass is complete, Windows Memory Diagnostic will begin a second test pass using the same settings as before. Windows Memory Diagnostic will continue to run test passes until you exit.
pls check it out i too had ur same problem the diagnostic came with a fault and my prblem was known to me then :smileyhappy:

if the memroy diagnostics return with something like "failed" then your memory may have problems
