I am having trouble on my HP DM3-2010us.
I want to remove the windows 7 and install windows xp with my own disk (I personally like XP better). Since it doesnot have optical drive, I have already created a bootable flashdrive. but when it's booted, it cannot detect the hard drive. I know I need to change the hard drive SATA/ATI compatibility in the BIOS setting, but there is no such an option in the BIOS menu. So I am wondering is there a way to do so with ubuntu live CD.
Thanks much for helping out.
