I am currently running 32-bit windows XP Home on a Dell XPS Gen5 with a 64-bit processor.
I have an additional hard drive, partitioned in half. I want to install Windows XP Professional 64-bit on one of the partitions.
However, the installer recognizes no hard disks. I do not have a floppy drive.
I found this page https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/resolving-setup-did-not-find-any-hard-disk-drives-during-windows-xp-installation/ and followed the directions there.
For the drivers, I went to http://support.dell.com/suppor.....&s=gen and entered my service tag. From there, I downloaded the "Intel - Driver" driver from the category "SATA Drives."
I completed the creation of a "slipstreamed" ISO, burnt it to a CD, and attempted to install again. Nothing changed.
I'm guessing that the drivers I downloaded were for a 32-bit os, though I'm unsure if that would be a problem for the setup.
My questions, I guess, are
a.) Did I get the wrong drivers?
b.) How do I tell if I got the wrong drivers?
c.) How can I find out what the RIGHT driver is?
d.) Where can I find the correct driver to include on the slipstreamed CD?
Thank you for your time.
On a side note, Windows Vista Business 64-bit is installed to the OTHER partition on that drive... I had to install it from within 32-bit XP Home, though; the installation CD wouldn't boot. Wish XP64 had that option.
