Notebook bikin pusing


Beberapa tempo hari ada Notebook Acer Aspire 4730z baru yang mau diinstal Windows XP. Bawaan OS nya Linpus, Tapi ada yang aneh, setiap windows XP mau mount hardisk selalu muncul error (blue blank). Biasanya hal itu muncul kalau ada masalah dengan hardisknya. Aku mencoba mengisntal pake Win 2000, Vista Ultimade pun selalu sama yaitu hardisk bermasalah. Sempat kepikiran untuk balikin Notebook ke dealernya... kesimpulan sementara... RUSAK...


Sempat juga pake PTDD SuperFdisk untuk mengecek partisi di hardisk....Ada beberapa yang bad.. coba perbaiki, gak bisa-bisa... 2hari terbuang dengan sis-sia. Tepat jam 16.20 coba browsing di Google " setup bios acer Aspire 4730z"... eeeee.. ternyata ada sesuatu:
1. Setup Did Not Find Any Hard Disk Drives Problem Fix

I know this is a very common problem especially on laptop computers particularly on new Acer laptop series where the default SATA mode is AHCI (Advanced Host Controller Interface), though personally i prefer to use AHCI due to numerous benefits over its counterpart, but due to a lot of people asking on how they can solved the problem the easy way, so i am compelled to make this post for the sake of helping others, which is by the way, the main purpose of the existence of this blog.
There are two ways to get the problem fixed, one is through slipstream where you will customize the OS installation and incorporate the SATA driver into the installer, second is configure the bios to use IDE emulation. This guide will use the latter. Below are the steps on how to do it.
BIOS setting AHCI
1. Boot up your computer and press F2 or delete key.
2. Once you are able to get into the BIOS, go to Main (for acer computers) or look for SATA Mode and change it to IDE Mode (the default is AHCI Mode).
3. Press F10 and select save changes and exit.
4. Reboot and continue with the OS installation, the installer should be able to detect the drive now.
ternyata setelah diubah setingan BIOS default harus diubah... baru sekali ini bro... Setelah Bios diubah....install Win XP lancar........ thanks Google...
