    You can't do that without an XP driver for sata hard drive which won't exist unless this unit ever had XP on it and the other issue is drivers and if there are none then you won't get on the internet or have any sound most likely as that is what happens to most who try what you do,
    Vista is fine if you tweak it and there are many posts on this forum if you search that tell you how to remove Uac and Windows defender and shut down the dumb annoying security notices as well.
