Cannot run XP win setup on T7500 !

This question is not answered


I've received a new T7500 workstation and no OS installed, so I went to BIOS and changed and the sata operation to ATA and run the windows setup but after the message that said to install windows xp press enter, setup didn't find any hard disk?

I changed the sata operation to AHCI and run the setup, then the blue screen appeard.

while i install windows XP  i press F6 then  installed SATA driver "Intel Matrix Storage Manager (OS Pre-Install Driver Only)" from Dell site  but still have the same problem. 

Please tell me if there is a solution for that?

  • Did you run the downloaded file to extract its contents? Normally the procedure is to run the file can copy the extracted files to the Root directory of a Floppy disk. I you have no floppy you can try copying them to the root directory of a thumb drive or you may need to slipstream them into the XP install disk using a program like nlite
