1pc x UCDS – Ford
Anyway, I worked out that particular problem. The laptop ONLY runs in AHCI mode and UIDE won’t ‘talk’ to AHCI disks.
So I took your Windows XPSP3 CD and installed it on an old PC – this worked fine.
Photos attached to show installation.
1 Type CDROM.BAT
2 CDROM.BAT Contents
3 Type Command for UIDE
4 UIDE Error
However, as stated right from the beginning, the UCDS CD DOES NOT CONTAIN A DRIVER! Therefore the cable will not work.
I have been working on and repairing PCs for over 30 years. There is something missing from your setup.
Problems and their solutions :-
You can get around this by doing the first boot (when pressing ‘A’) by putting the .NRG disk and your HDD into a compatible PC. When it is going to reboot, switch off and put everything back into the original laptop. XP SP3 is fine with AHCI, it’s just your .NRG disk that is not.
