Default Can't install XP SP2 on a Hujitsu Siemens notbook.

I'm working on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro notebook and want to format and reinstall windows.

The problem is that that it tells me that it can't find any HDD in the computer. WTF. It still has Windows XP Pro on it (although it is overrun with malware) and I just want to install WinXP Pro again.

And to top it all I can't get onto Fujitsu Siemens' website.

Can anybody help.

Check the BIOS. If SATA is set to AHCI you're going to need to slipstream a driver into the install disc. If you set it to IDE emulation it'll most likely detect it.
