Question about IBM Netvista Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz / 512MB DDR / 40GB HDD / DVD-ROM / 10/100Mbps LAN / Windows XP P (RBP42400XPP) PC Desktop
The Computer is not recognizing the IDE Hard Drive, nor is it booting from the CD ROM because I am trying to install Ubuntu on it.
It shows that your IDE option is not enabled in the BIOS. So, enable the IDE Controller in your motherboard.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps
