    i have an acer aspire 5050, it takes a 2.5 sata drive, but it just wont detect them in bios, there's nothing i can do....
    what i was hoping was to get a esata card and plug the drive into that, and install/boot win 7 from there...

    right now i have xp booting from a usb key but i can't figure out how to get wifi working from it, it sucks.

    any help guys :(
