The Panasonic Toughbook CF-30 is a full-sized laptop computer with a SATA hard drive. This means that you will have to install the SATA drivers for the computer prior to the Windows XP installation, as XP contains no native drivers for SATA hardware devices. Accomplish this by using the SATA driver disk that shipped with your Panasonic computer.
