We are unable to load window xp on hard disc, before we only find the 32 GB in 80 GB hard disk ... we successfully installed the window xp, but when jumper setting done in accurate place, it shows 80 GB,...


I think this model is still an IDE type. You set the 32GB limit then jump the settings to read the full capacity of the drive. If you are trying to load XP OS from a blank drive.

First prime the hard drive, you can do low level formatting and use third party software to partition and format the drive. on FAT32 partition you can only use 8GByte to make the drive bootable. Make it primary if I remembered it correctly and active. Or use the NTFS format.

You can use also if it have the manufacturers' hard drive utilities to check the hard drive integrity. I know they have it. It also equip with zero fill to renew chain and links of the drive. Then partition, format, primary and active. Then load your OS.

Check also your CD disc integrity, scratches do make a lot of troubles. And also your cdrom/dvdrom drive.

Serial number missing


The volume serial number is automatically generated when you format the drive. By using the Seagate utility to zero fill the drive, you have made it blank and destroyed all data, including the partition table and filesystem. Re-partition and re-format the drive.
