You do not have SATA drivers on the disk
Download "driverspack" one word from here
http://driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/

the Driverpack massstorage one
Download "Nlite" install it
You may have to get someone to do it for you
copy your Windows CD to hard drive and insert driverpack into the driver section of it
then burn to another CD
"Nlite is easy to use just read instructions

Can't install windows on FSB 800 motherboard its showing no hard disk installed in your computer but showing in the bios kindly help


If you are installing XP on a SATA hard drive then -

The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Make sure all the connectors are plugged in and in the correct spots. Then go to the bios and enable the SATA drives to be read. After that you should be able to boot from CD and install XP.

Windows Setup cant find hard disk ?????????????


Does the BIOS on your system see the drive and show it's model information? Is this the only drive on the system? If the answer is yes for both, then you can download free utilities from the web to wipe the drive clean. This will result in the loss of all existing data on your drive. You can search for "Wipe Disk" and will get several hits for free software. Once you have cleaned the drive, try instlling XP. If the BIOS does not see your drive, the XP can't see it. You may want to try other SATA ports on your motherboard, or try changing the IDE configuration in the BIOS. Let me know if this works.
