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.
