Windows Xp Setup Problem : "setup cannot access the disk". I have HDD: Maxtor Diamondmax Plus 9 80GB ATA/133 HDD.


try doing a F disk on the hard drive first then format it and make it the active drive and then try installing the xp software. if it has had another operating system say for instance windows ME it will not install on that drive without removing it. You can also go to www.maxtor.com and download their free hard drive tools to see if there is a problem that thier software can fix. the software is for free.

DELL Optiplex GX110 freezing


Check the settings of the internal setups. This is using the BIOS itself and hitting a particular key before anything happens. On some machines it is F1 or the DEL key. In the basic setup there are settings for the boot order and floppy drives and HD type. Make sure these are set correctely.

ALSO on one of mine I have to use a formatting/partitioning program supplied by the HD manufacturer (in this case Maxtor) to pre-prepare the drive beofre trying to install WIndows.

Windows XP should automatically detect the hard drive. There should be no reason for a driver, however software to format and backup your drive can be found at Maxtor. It is important to format the drive before it is used.

Hi, It is possible that your anti-virus quarantined suspected files but are required for booting up Windows. You can try: 1. Booting in Safe Mode to check things out; 2. Boot in last known good configuration; 3. Re-install Windows using the "repair" option. Experience has taught me that the safest was re-partitioning, re-formatting and do a complete fresh/clean/new install of the OS. Good luck and kind regards.

Assuming this was your only hard disk, there is nothing on the disk for the BIOS to boot from. You need to boot from the installation disk for your operating system. The OS installer will then let you create a partition and install to it.
