my 5570 has non SATA HDD

by harco.crawler In reply to sata hdd

it's been confirm by the Acer Indonesia that my 5570 was non SATA.

I'm still confuse with the "SATA", "IDE", "PATA" and "RAID". Is there any taxonomy relationship between them? Or it's just merely a different technology?

But I'm convinced that my HDD not a SATA one. So, I don'need any SATA bundled windows cd intalation.

I don't think it is the mainboard because it does see the drive in the bios. It could possibly be a bad drive, and windows wont recognize it. Try another drive if available and see if it recognizes that. If not, try another Laptop with the same drive. Im just guessing since your a retailer that you have these options.

You haven't explained the reason for a reinstall ...

This could be important and explain WHY Windows can't 'see' the hard drive.

Try nuking the hard drive by using DBAN first:

Depending on the capacity of this hard drive, it could take at least a few hours to fully wipe it (if not more).

Once it has been fully wiped, THEN try installing XP again.

if it sometimes loses the CD-RW also, it may be a bad mainboard. It's unlikely, but possible. The controller for the HDD and CdRom could be bad
