The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Im having prblems with my toshiba nb250, after i change o.s. ...it wont boot anymore.....i checked the hard disks and memory to refresh it...it seems ok,...... what seems to be the problem...i really cant...


what os did you have before, and what os do you have now? because the problem could be that if you went from xp to 7 or vista or vice versa, they use different programs to boot, but unless you did a complete hard drive wipe, both boot programs will still be there and interfere with each other. so if you did a clean install, your going to have to do again, but this time your going to do a complete hard drive wipe before installing the os. if you upgraded from xp to 7, then try using the start up repair, it should come up if your os doesn't boot up, or if it doesn't come up, then try inserting the cd, it should appear there. if you need further assistance, let me know, and goodluck.

Missing drvmain.sdb file from xp home, cannot boot. recovery console does not help.(chkdsk ) any ideas?


If it just disappeared then you may have a bad HD on your hands.

Try to load your xp disk again and do a repair instead.

You would pretend like your installing xp and when it starts to seek out your HD it will say if found a curropted version of xp and can repair it if you want.

Cannot install windows xp


If your hard drive is NOT a SATA hard drive, try looking on the back side of the hard drive, and see if the jumper pins are set at "cable select". If they are not, this could be the problem. Once the pins are configured correctly, this should solve the problem.

Having problem installing Windows XP on My Acer Aspire T650 Computer


Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.
