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 not genuine on new hard drive with win 7 preinstalled


Try installing the OS that shipped with the computer. If it is an HP OEM version that you are installing on the HP computer for which it was designed then you should not have any problem. Otherwise, you need to buy a license from Microsoft, or the recovery disks for your computer from HP.

How are you installing the OS? You should insert the windows 2003 standard installation disk and bootup to cd. From there, you will be easily guided thru the installation process. You should also have a genuine microsoft license for this.
