Acer has no SATA driver posted for this machine: ie: ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/noteboo...e_5530/driver/

Nor is the SATA driver even mentioned in their European website: http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers...k/tm_5530.html

So your task is to figure out what SATA controller is in your machine.

If you still have Vista installed, enter Device Manager and look to see what name Vista has given to the SATA controller. If you don't have Vista installed you may have to re-install it in order to identify the SATA controller.

On the bios you can set IDE compatible VS SATA controler

There 2 STICKY's in the Windows XP forum that have links to download all the XP SATA drivers you need for just about any machine.
