XP will not install until you go into the BIOS and find the menu page (probably by moving across the top level of tabs)
where the SATA hard drives are configured. On that page you will see the
ports and at least one, maybe all, will be Enabled. Close to that will
be the port mode, usually setable individually for each port. Choices
may include IDE (or PATA) Emulation, SATA, AHCI. Set your port
to IDE emulation. Now look at the bottom for the
key to Save and Exit - often the F10 key, press that key and select OK, the computer will restart and you should now be able to install Windows XP without any problems.
To get into the BIOS you have to press the Del or Esc key when you first turn the computer on.
You can install up to a max 2 GB RAM and can add a 2nd hard disk
See the following Specs for your computer.
HP Compaq Business d530 Ultra-Slim (Pentium 4 2.8GHz, 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD, XP Pro)
I believe you would need to install the Serial ATA card driver before installing windows. When you first start Xp it asks if you have any ATA drivers that need to be installed first. My guess,since it is used, that you have not the driver for that card? Give us the make and model of that card and we can help look for the driver,or take it out all together and use an IDE hard drive.
Use the Windows XP Setup disks to restart the computer, or use the Windows XP CD-ROM to restart the computer.
At the Welcome to Setup screen, press R to repair the Windows XP installation.
Press C to repair the Windows XP installation by using the Recovery Console.
Type the number that corresponds to the Windows installation that you want to repair, and then press ENTER. For example, type 1, and then press ENTER.
Type the Administrator password, and then press ENTER.
Type map, and then press ENTER. Note the drive letter that is assigned to the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD-ROM.
Type the following commands, pressing ENTER after you type each one, where drive is the drive letter that you typed in step 4 of "Method 2: Use the Recovery Console," of this article:
copy drive:\i386\ntldr c:\
copy drive:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\If you are prompted to overwrite the file, type y, and then press ENTER.
Gracias por la ayuda
No estoy configurando los dos discos duros apartes ni haciendo raid a los dos juntos.
El D.D. de 80 gb IDE ya esta parcicionado y formateado (40 c/u, FAT32), tiene windows xp sp3. Uso teclado PS2.
En el D.D. 250 gb serial ata quiero particionarlo en cuatro partes e instalar windows vista, las otras tres particiones para datos.
Voy a hacer esto: Desconecto el D.D. 80 gb IDE y dejo solo instalado el D.D. serial ata de 250 gb para partionarlo y formatearlo con windows vista; primero sin desactivar la función de raid en la bios y luego desactivandola; que opina.
i have sata hdd 160 gb of seagate and hdd detected in raid channelbut when start installing window it shows message press enter for fresh installation "no hdd found please check power card,bios configuration
you need to put the sata drivers onto a floppy disk and when it asks during the xp setup do you want to install any 3rd party drivers say yes and load the drivers from the floppy. The sata drivers with the floppy generator should be on the drivers cd you recieved.
