Please note that installing an operating system on an OEM machine OTHER than what was factory-installed on it may void either phone support for the customized OS or the warranty itself.
Lenovo Machines, like most new OEM models are set, by default to run their hard drives in AHCI mode for better performance & power management. Go to the computer's system setup F1 or Del while the computer is starting up to locate the Power, Hard drive or System configuration (Lenovo computers have different System Setup formats for each model so you'll have to navigate around a bit since they may be labeled differently).
Once you find it, you have to change the setting from AHCI to IDE or Compatibility, whichever option is available (once again, each model has a different format & labeling convention). Save the changes & exit the setup & retry the installation. Should work.
to resotore the computer to factory setting is done by clearing cmos to clear cmos you need to remove the cover of the computer and search for the battery in the motherboard remove the battery and also remove the power of the hard disk then start your computer then after the post you will see boot error then shutdown the computer remove the plug from the back of the computer then insert the battery and connect the hpower to hard disk and plug in back the power supply and restart your computer when restarted you will the message cmos rested pres del to enter bios and f1 to install defult option press del and change the date and time and press F10
In order to be detected the hard disk drive by your windows xp installer. You have to set your sata in your cmos or bios setup. When powering your computer tap the F2 key or Del to enter cmos or bios setup, go to integrated peripherals and look for the sata controllers. Most of the times if its configured as a enhanced the windows xp can not detect it. You have to change the settings to compatible mode. Please the modify key either F5 or F6 or PGUP/PGDOWN or + or - . After changing the settings press F10 and press y and enter. Then try again running the windows setup. Have a nice day.
I don't know what kind of unit you are useing.
You need to watch the screen when it boots up.
It will say check sum error, press ? F-2 to continue or F-1 to enter setup.??
Enter the setup screen and change the date and time.
Save ? F-10 and exit.
I hope this has helped you.
Just check that the hard disk is installed properly or not by checking its all cable.
If hard disk is detected then goto the bios option by pressing "DEL" or "F2" button as per your system configuration and then just find the : Native SATA support and disable it. After this save it by pressing shortcut key i.e. F10 and restart our machine.
