I'm trying to find out if I can install Windows XP on and SATA II drive? I just purchased a new Western Digital hard drive to replace my current hard drive, which is showing signs of failure. I used Data Lifeguard Tools to setup my new hard drive and transfer, or copy, one partition to the other one (the new one). Everything seemed to go as it should until proceeded to boot up my new hard drive, and the message "OS not found" appeared at bootup. I had heard that Windows XP won't install on a SATA II drive and as I purchased this drive with that thought out of my mind at the time. So my question and problem is, is this true? Can I use this drive to run Windows XP?
