Re: No HDD detected?
nlite is a program for creating your own windows installation discs for NT based OS's, then there's vlite for vista and probably 7 too. it allows you to take your original xp installation disc and add things to it such as drivers, service packs, settings, etc, and then burn a new copy of the disc.
it's incredibly easy, even if you've never used it before. my only piece of advice is that if your only obstacle right now is drivers and you don't have time or some cdrw's to experiment with, only add the drivers. if you have a day or so, knock yourself out. it can be really helpful.
the process of adding these things to the installation disc is called slipstreaming. i like to slipstream service packs, it saves me time everyday.
both nlite and the drivers are free for download.
There are 10 types of people in this world. People who understand binary and people who don't.
