My hitachi 1tb xl1000 drive wont read my files and is saying that the drive is not formatted. What is this?


It means that there is no operating system installed on your hard drive and so it will not work until you add one. Buy a windows xp disk or an operating system that you wish to use and put the disk in the cd/dvd rom. Reboot the pc to get it to pick up on the disk in the drive and then follow the prompts to install an operating system.

Cannot install Windows XP Pro using the setup disk. I can delete the old partition and reformat the hard disk using NTFS, but when setup starts copying files it fails to copy a file (never the same file)...


It's possible that your disk-drive is "failing", and it's about to "die".

Buy a new disk-drive, connect it, and try to install to it.

Other possibilities:
* bad RAM in your computer is messing-up the file-copy operations, and the CD-reading operations
* dying motherboard is malfunctioning,
* scratched Windows CD-ROM media
* malfunctioning CD-reader device.

One day my Samsung SP0822N running XP as master died on me....


You will have to provide a driver to XP when you're installing the OS that allows it to "talk" to the hard drive. When you are going through the setup of XP, you will see a screen that gives you the option of pressing F6 to install a custom driver. You must press F6 (and you don't have but just about 3 or 4 seconds to press it) and then tell XP where the driver is it needs to load.

Put the driver from Samsung on a floppy disk (if you have a floppy drive available during the installation process) and point the install of XP to the floppy. It will copy that file into memory and then proceed with copying some other files. Do NOT remove the floppy until after the installer has rebooted the machine and copied the files over again.

This should allow you to continue with the installation normally.

Windows does not see full size of new Hard drive


Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

SEAGATE HARD DISK DRIVE PROBLEM...


Hi,

I am venturing a guess, but it could possibly be your memory and not your hard drive.

Additionally, you can partition and format the 40Gb HD in a second PC using a third party utility such as Partition Magic which would also allow you to verify the integrity of the hard drive

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My hard drive shows only 1.5 GB instead of 100


is it correct that you installed XP from an "upgrade" pack?
when you installed XP did you convert the file system to NTFS?
