    I just got a Dell Latitude E5500. After installing Windows xp and my applications I wanted to make an image of the disk using my UBCD and drive image XML. After booting to the CD I was horrified to discover that the internal hard drive was not found.

    Is this a SATA issue? I checked the BIOS and nothing jumped out at me. I have used the UBCD for a few years on many different laptops and desktops and have never had this problem.

    I am using UBCD 3.1 now.

        My comments are going to be a little like comparing apples and oranges, but here it is:

        I installed XP to dual-boot with factory installed Vista on a Dell Dimension E521 with SATA. This was easy. This computer will also boot from a UBCD4WIN CD or USB, and I never made any bios changes. Your situation may require the advice given by Joshua. My experience with Dell computers has been very good when it comes to Linux Live and UBCD4WIN.
