Amilo Pro v2085 can't install Windows XP

Postby jaguartrading » Mon Jul 04, 2011 10:45

I have had to change the hard drive on my laptop and don't have a restore disk, a friend has a copy of Windows XP i can install it with using the licence on the bottom of the laptop but it keeps saying it can't see the hard drive. Now i understand this isn't unusual and i need to load the driver via floppy disc part way through installing windows, i have a usb floppy drive but can't find the driver anywhere. I am reluctant to pay 60p a minute to Fujutsi when they should provide this driver on their website. I would be happy to pay for a copy of the restore disc if one was available for aroun £10 but can't find them anywhere.

Does anyone have any ideas of what i could do?

Thanks

Steve

Hi, Your machine has a Chipset Intel 915GM
This driver is available from the fujitsu driver download page searching under full software search "Chipset Intel 915GM" or intel.com

The product key underneath will not work if you use a non fujitsu XP disk. (its an oem key only) You will need a full 25 digit product key to go with it.
xp is not obtainable anymore Microsoft pulled it some time ago.

Hallo,
on the site of Intel you may copy the F6-Floppy file for your chipset.
