My dell laptop has no OS on it right now (when trying to reformat it, vista got corrupted and is no longer there). So, I am trying to use a vista disk to reinstall it on the laptop but it stalls because it needs to have the sata drivers installed on the computer.
But, how can i install these drivers if i have no OS on the computer? Is there a way to do this? The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1720.
Thank you for any help,
