Doesn't support HPA

ERROR: Your hard drive doesn't support HPA! Press any key to restart
ERROR: After F6 in windows XP installation proccessing ... that needed to DRIVER FLOPPY
ERROR: Windows XP needed to SATA Driver on floppy ... but we havn't
ERROR: I can't install windows XP on SATA

Don't be worry, instated ... go to BIOS and solve your problem ...
You CAN do it ...
Go to BIOS > Integrated Pripherals and set the SiS Serial ATA Mode to IDE (from RAID)
Ok, Start windows installation normally (without F6, F2 or other keys)
Be happy ....

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have been struggling with this for a week and have been reduced to tears in the process. I tried all sorts of sites and all sorts of advice and none of them worked. I am pleased to say your advice did and I am now flying away loading my Windows XP. Yeah fantastic. Keep up the good work. I am sure it will happen to some other poor sole out there. Thank you thank you thank you. Angie.
