If you have a copy of MS-Dos should work. The hard drive needs to be reformatted. This should change the File Allocation Table (Fat) and allow you to install Windows XP. Hope this helps.

ok for one your computer no matter what OS you are using stores no drive letter , a drive letter is only given in the order as it is
installed on your system for example if you use 2 internal HDD
and one external HDD your computers C: drive will be the master
the F: will be the slave and the external will be G: , now if you have changed the order of the drives from your last OS then it
will conflict to the last drive letter given , your unit will know
what letter it was given so it must be in the same location for
the new OS , there is also the possibility that Windows 7 doesn't
support the driver for that unit , you can try hooking it up to
another computer retrieving your data , then hooking it back
up to windows 7 run its software , then installing the data back
into your HDD

OK try this, go to the bios and disable the AHCI, and change it to the alternative which is ATA?. The PC should now boot up perfectly fine. See if I can re-enable the AHCI once you install all the dell drivers properly in the Windows OS.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...

Installing driver


you dont need drivers for hds in windows XP if the operative system is already installed and you are trying to connect an external HD via USB... if this is your case you dont need drivers...you probably have another problem in your OS... And if there is a driver problem and the disk is HITACHI, just go to manufacturers website and thats all... good luck

Having trouble using it as a solo harddrive in newer computer


Hi,

When Windows (XP?) was installed in the Quantum Fireball LCT1520 of the old Compaq Presario, the OS was married to the hardware specifically the motherboard/chipset. When it was removed and transplanted to the newer PC, the OS would be looking for the old hardware settings/configuration and since the new PC has a different motherboard and therefore cannot find the old hardware, it would loop/reboot continuously and/or BSODs.

One method of getting the old HD to work in the new PC is to do a clean/new install of the OS.

If for some reason you prefer to use the old OS in the old HD with its settings/configuration, you can try to do a repair/re-install. The procedure is similar to installing a clean/new OS except that you should opt for the 2nd repair choice (not the R or first repair option). This should retain most if not all of your old applications/settings while installing new Windows files.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
