The reason it is showing "no hard disk" is because you have a SATA hard drive, and there is no SATA support on the WS2003 software, so it doesn't even "see" the drive when trying to install.

What you can do is download SATA drivers for your hard drive to your machine. Once downloaded and/or extracted, restart the installation but choose F6 to load "SCSI or 3rd party drivers", then point to the downloaded drivers.

Your installation will then load the SATA drivers, thereby recognizing the hard drive and you'll be able to successfully install Windows.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

Windows xp installation


Hello,
if you have the space on a separate disk drive, I wo recommend installing Windows XP on a seperate drive than the server os and create a dull boot server. You would install the XP os as normal. When ask where to install, choose the spare drive other than where the server os is installed. This should allow Oracle to run as you need it.

Good luck

How do I setup a dual boot for a PC with Vista and XP? I want XP to start automatically.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355-S7915 that had Vista Home Basic preinstalled.


The first thing you need to do is repartition the hard drive. This will effectively erase the drive because partitions run below the OS level.

You create two partitions and then you can load each OS to its own partition. When the box boots you choose the OS you want to start and thats it...I think if you put the preferred OS in the first partition it will load that one by default.

You need both OS disks to do this so make sure your factory Vista disk works.

Freeagent with server 2003 not working


Seems that Seagate did not release a version of software which could be used on a Windows Server 2003 platform. I checked their web site at the following link & didn't find any software supported on Windows Server 2003:
http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=freeagent-downloads&vgnextoid=3723b5b59b7d5110VgnVCM100000f5ee0a0aRCRD

Sorry, but I can't help you with this one. Try contacting Seagat for this & see if they have a solution to your problem.

Vista is 64 bit OS, server 2003 standard is 32 bit. Change Server 2003 to Server 2003 R to get compatible. See Microsoft website. May suggest Server 2008.

Good luck.
