HELP ASAP! Installing XP

Hey,

 

I have a Thinkpad Edge E420.

 

I am trying to install XP on it but I am having problems!

 

I think i need to Slipstream SATA Drivers Into XP CD but i cant find the drivers for XP?

 

HELP PLEASE! i tried installing vista once i couldnt install XP but I couldnt do that due to no dvd/cd drivers.

 

I now have a half installed xp OS..

 

 

thanks!

Hi toddygould,

 

I changed your language settings, see if they work now.

 

You can change the SATA setting in the bios to compatible.  (not sure what the bios looks like in an Edge)  It might say AHCI.  XP will load and install. Then install the SATA drivers.
