Can't load Windows

  Rich Pickings 18:26 02 Feb 08

Hello chaps
I have an Acer Extensa 5610 which I need to reload Windows XP Pro on. When I get to the "press enter to set up Windows XP" point, it fails to find the HDD and will not let me go any further. I don't have a floppy drive in the machine to load SATA drivers, and indeed do not have the SATA drivers anyway, is there any way around this problem?

Also I do not have the Acer recovery disk, which probably has the SATA driver on it.
