Anyone else had any luck or have some clue where I can get it? I can't even install XP on the laptop.
At what stage are you in the install process?
What version of XP? (SP2?)
I've been trying to install Linux on mine, but it seems to stall with the install. Still working on that.
However, in my attempts, I put in a Dell Windows XP SP2 disk, and it booted up enough to format the drive and begin file copies. No problems. Obviously the Dell disk is locked to prevent running XP on non-Dell machines so I terminated the install.
Did you get a CD with the computer? What about the IDE drivers, on the CD:
This seems to be a version of a SIS IDE Driver. It isn't clear if that is for the HDD or the CD, or both.
Are you sure your HDD is good? Have you tested it?
