Did you ensure that the SATA cable is connected ok from the HD to the motherboard, on the appropriate sockets?
If it's ok, try looking at the bios configuration

I cant download op cd


If the new hard disk is a SATA hard disl then the problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk 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 anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen 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.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive

XP will not install "Setup


That is because it was designed for Vista not the obsolete XP. There are no hard drive drivers suitable in XP.
Re install Vista or install Win7.
Hope that helps.

Hi.I want to format my hard disk and install windows xp home edition. But it end up by saying it cant detect my hard disk. im using MSI km400 with sata.


Windows XP comes in 2 'flavors', one being the OEM or 'Full' version, and the other is the 'upgrade' version. The Full version will setup and format the hard disk, applying the boot track. The Upgrade version expects to see the boot track there, and will not proceed further. You may need a utility like Seagate Diskwizard to setup the hard drive for installation. That program can be downloaded from Seagate's website.

Hi, I have formatted the SATA hard drive in my Gateway GT 5408 with Intel motherboard D945GCFG1. I want to load XP pro instead of the original Vista which was on it. Do I need to change the Bios or install...


No, you do not need to install a new driver as long as that is the same sata hard disk tha used to work in your Gateway computer. Just boot into your windows xp installation cd and let the setup continue.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

About hard disk


I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.

1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well.
   Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad.
   Continue to part 2.

2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
  • At the Setup Notification screen, press Enter to continue.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, hit Enter to continue.
  • Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement and press F8 to agree.
  • On the Xp Setup screen, you'll create an installation partition, but first some housekeeping. If you have any existing partitions you must delete all of them before proceeding.  After deleting all partitions, select "Unpartitioned space" and pressing Enter. And then press Enter again to confirm the partition size as is (it should already be set to the maximum size).
  • Next, select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system" and press Enter. Xp will now install.
If the same error appears then the hard drive is probably bad.
