How can window xp be installed in a sata harddisk Tags: Configuration SATA Hard Drives Windows XP Last response: November 16, 2011 11:41 AM in Windows XP Share eddysonb2k November 15, 2011 11:02:09 AM Hello, More about : window installed sata harddisk PhilFrisbie November 15, 2011 6:37:09 PM The easiest way is to go into the BIOS and set the hard drive to IDE mode. This works great if you are installing to a regular hard drive, and not a SSD.
