    There is an adapter on the hard drive, did it get transfered to the new drive?

    The laptop controller is in ACHI mode, you'd need to provide additional SATA drivers via floppy or slip streaming for XP to see the hard drive.

    Do you have Vista recovery CD's, it did come with Vista originally correct? Does the Windows 7 disc work in another computer, does it have any scratches, have you used it before?

    Please reread this sentence out loud, it doesn't make sense.
