I have an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop computer running Windows Vista. I got sick of Vista being so slow so I wanted to take Vista off and reload the computer with Windows XP. I took Ghost images of the hard drive partitions and used fdisk to repartition the hard drive (to get rid of the small partition with the preloaded programs on it) I inserted the install disk for Windows XP, it loads but when I am asked if I want to intall WIndows XP I click on yes, then it tells me that it can not detect the hard drive.
After using fdisk to partition the hard drive I have formatted it, and accessed the drive so it is definitely there and accessable but Windows XP is not recognising it.
Can you help me be able to get Windows XP to recognise the hard drive?
THank you for your help.
