    Hello Everyone
    I have an old xp with sp3 and am having problems installing it on a Dell latitude E6230, I think it hasn't any sata drivers. I did in the past download drivers for my Dell vostro 1320 onto a floppy and installed it via F6 but I cant get the same process, different drivers, to work with the latitude.
    How can I install to the latitude and what drivers do I need.
    Any help appreciated.

    you can get drivers above, but I need the hard drive info to see if it is a sata drive or not, go to device manager or just look at the harddrive and give me the make and model number.

    also what was on the latitude before? operating system
    if you have a dell install cd, you can install it on any dell that had that same operating system, but you cannot install home to a pro pc .

    what type of install media do you have?
