IDE and SATA do not mix unless setup properly.
I would use the SATA one as main hard drive and set the other up as an external one on USB

  • F5
  • F10
  • Escape

Problem with my computer


Hi Thanks for your question
If you have restore CD that should have came with your laptop restoring it should be quite easy.
1. Press F10 on startup and set DVD/CD drive to be the first device in Boot order. You should find this in general section of BIOS or in Boot section or similar.
2. Put your restore CD in and restart your computer When asked to press any key to boot from cd do it
3. Follow instructions on the screen and you should be able to complete your restore in 30-40 min
Good Luck

Windows unable to complete format.


How did you format the computer, inside windows or outside?
Try this change the boot sequence from the BIOS instead of booting first to HD make your optical drive as first boot. After changing the boos sequence insert the windows vista disk to the drive then restart the computer. When it boots it will ask you to press any key to boot to CD/DVD. Keep tapping on space bar. If you notice it will say windows copying files. When copying files completed we isolated the problem dvd rom is fine and the vista installer is fine as well.
If the problem only started in or during attempting to format you HDD might causes the problem.

CANNOT INSTALL XP HOME


Why do you revove the cd? DONT do that, just let the installation go on until it finish.
When xp restarts you will be asked if you want to start from the cd, if you do press any key, DONT press anything at all, let the system starts from the point of installation that it needs.

BTW, did you set the boot correct? boot ONE the cd/dvd, boot TWO the HDD

Good luck
