If you have a SATA hard drive your windows disk needs SATA drivers on it.
Download Driverspack from this site
http://driverpacks.net/DriverPacks/
Mass storage one
then copy windows CD to hard drive and use "Nlite" to install driverpack into it then burn windows to new CD and try again.
This should solve your problem

    When you try to install windows from a boot CD what comes up install screen or nothing.
    Sometime it may come up with "cannot find hard drive" or similar.
    Try downloading "Hirens Boot CD" burn to disk and boot from it.
    It has a lot of different utilities on it. Read on web site what it does.
    Because you had Linux previously installed it. your hard drive may not have "the Windows MBR" on hard drive so cannot find hard drive.
    the boot CD will install the MBR (Master Boot Record)
    Or use partition magic (on CD" to partition hard drive.
    If I was there could solve problem.
    You could also try a full format with one of the format programs
    I cannot remember what one I used but it did the job
    Whatever format program you use do not forget to make it active

I need the bios settings for an 'INTEL DG41RQ' mother board but I have NO operating system


1. Make sure that the monitor is connected to the ATI card and the motherboard VGA port.
2. On powering up, press [F2] to get into BIOS.
3. In the Intel BIOS, look for key to set to BIOS defaults. I think it is [F7] but corrrect key will be displayed.
4. [F10] to save and exit.
Now try reinstalling OS. You will need Win 7 with SP1 otherwise, go back to BIOS and change the SATA drive to IDE from AHCI.

Have you updated XP to SP3 as recommended? Did you  installed the latest available video driver after after that ?

Will not run xp pro i'm stuck in 2000 mode mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp pro i've been told im pretty much sol. Is this true?


If you have a valid Win XP Pro CD and want to install the operating system you'll need to format your hard disk drive. If you have allot of data on you're hard disk drive, (In Win 2000) Suggest you create a second partition within the free space of you're hdd and install windows XP Pro. Boot you're system with the XP CD. Pay close attention to the display screens. Follow the instructions for creating a second partition.
Format the new partition. (Quick). Install windows XP on the new partition. Once completed you can copy your personal data to win XP.
If you choose to keep the win 2000 partition and you do not wish to have a dual boot system than remove/delete the root files from the 2000 partition. These files; Autoexec.bat and Boot.ini. You're new XP Boot.ini should read like this;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Once you're satisfied an no longer need win 2000 use windows diskmgmt.msc from the run command to delete the win 2000 partition.
Win 2000 uses a FAT16 where Win XP uses the FAT NTFS.

Cheers!

I am unable to install win Xp. when trying to boot from a cd to install fresh win xp ser. 2. system reboot after copying few installation files. The Bios set up shows the Sata Hard Drive but unable to load...


your HDD may be bad. I have had a number of HDD that appear fine in the BIOS but won't format either via the install disk or separately via a Linux boot disc.(You can somtimes hear them clicking on and off [seeking])

If you are mad keen on the drive, then D/L 'Hirens Boot Disc' and boot into the DOS mode (it also has a Mini XP mode).and use the HDD format utlity 'killdisk'. This will remove anything on the drive, format it and set it up ready for a fresh install.

If Hirens Boot Disk can't see the SATA drive then its stuffed.. for sure..

Tis about REALTEK blahblah...i cannot see the volume tray icon


Hi,
As you said you have formatted Drive C:, and installed XP SP3 and back again XP SP2.
Why don't you try formating the whole drive and reinstalling fresh Win XP SP2 and always choose NTFS partition only because all the features are supported in this partition.

MoBo Replacement


did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.

Problem


The WindowsXP setup program will hang when it tries check hardware at the beginning of setup. It won't recognize the linux file system as a legitimate drive and freeze. You'll need to either format the drive and lose all the linux data, or buy a second drive to install Windows on and make the windows drive the primary drive, and temporarily disconnect the linux drive. After you install Windows you can reconnect the linux drive as secondary. You can check the forums for your version of linux and find help on setting up a dual boot system so you can boot from Windows and linux. You'll just have to make adjustment to the linux bootloader config file.
Linux is a great operating system, but is not for the faint of heart.
Good Luck
