What make and model is the PC?
if you have the hard drive cd from the manufacture then you should be able to install it.
you need to hit F6 during bootup, when you install the Windows Xp from a CD watch it very carefully, during the first few seconds. the bootup will ask for additional hard drive driver. that is when you hit F6 and follow the instruction. don't do anything till it ask for it.

The Windows XP disc you are using doesn't that the Hard Drive Controller Driver for that system native to the operating system. Since the system is a Mini and has no floppy drive the only option is to slipstream the HDD controller drivers into the OS CD.

Hello, Where could I find a driver for WD5000KS SATA? I am trying to upgrade my desktop PC to Win 7 but when installing it, the setup could not detect the SATA HDD and asked me to load the HDD driver. ...


Check in your BIOS,first make sure the SATA controller is set to native mode and not RAID, and secondly that the BIOS can detect the drive, if the drive can't be detected by the BIOS then it's because the drive surpasses the boards drive size limitation.; If this is the case there is a chance a BIOS update may fix it but it's not guaranteed it will.

Good day i have tried to install Win XP on my acer aspire laptop after formatting the HDD on another machine but i cant, the acer did not recognise the HDD. what do i do


Do you have an Xp disk? This is the only way I know of to install Windows Xp without encountering any problems.

You will need the disk; also you need to make sure that the boot options see that you want it to boot from your cd drive. When you start your computer up, get to this screen by hitting the key to enter setup options shortly after hitting the power button. It's where you change your BIOS and other stuff.
This is where you can make sure it recognizes your new HDD and change your boot option to #1-boot from cd drive.

Reply to this if you need more info.

Hope this helps.

HDD not recognized whe installing fresh Windows XP!


Hi...

If your HDD will not recognized during installation you need to check if your HDD is detected. Try to look at your BIOS if it is detected. IF the HDD will not detected you need to replace the cable, try to use the other slot of your SATA or IDE ports.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

Can't reinstall windows xp


hmmm its seems your HDD is of SATA interface and XP is not able to detect the HDD interface. you can solve this problem by making SATA Disabled in BIOS setup.

Try to make disabled SATA from BIOS, and then make install.

If any problem... Ask me

Thanks
