I have a Vista computer. The owner bought XP and wants to replace Vista
on a relatively new Gateway. I saved the data. But when I get to the XP
setup where I normally delete the partition and reinstall, I am only being
shown "Unknown Disk (There is no disk in this drive.)" It says that 4 times
one above the other. I have never seen that message. I happened to have
another SATA of exactly the same size and blank so I put it in the computer
and was going to try installing to it. I get the same message.
I looked in Setup but can't find any setting that would cause this.
The message seems to indicate that I am trying to install to an optical
What does this mean????????????
