Run device manager and keep it running during the installation of drivers. It will take a bunch of drivers, but it will work and it will stop once it has all the drivers installed.

If you want both OS you need to do a partition on the HD to proceed.IThat what i can figure from your quest.But if you just want XP just do a clean installation of it.

Perform a clean install of Windows XPA clean installation consists of removing all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk. For more information about important things to consider before you partition and format you hard disk and how to partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:313348  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348/ ) How to partition and format a hard disk by using Windows XP Setup programTo perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.
  2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  7. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
If you have successfully installed Windows XP, you are finished. If these steps did not help you install Windows XP, go to the "Next Steps" section.

RUNNING A SATA HDD ON AN IDE ONLY MOTHERBOARD


If I am not completely mistaken you have to reinstall the OS on the SATA drive on IDE. That is because the first installation was configured for connection on a SATA /PCI then now on the SATA/IDE port converter.

You do not need a hard disk controller driver. The hard disk is configured in the BIOS automatically.
If Windows install cannot detect the hard disk then either the hard disk is faulty or the motherboard disk controller is faulty.
Re-seat the hard disk, it may not be making proper electrical connection and then go to the BIOS configuration to see if it detects the hard disk, if not then the hard could be faulty or the disk controller is faulty. In most cases it is the hard disk that is faulty.
To further test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter, then plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer does not see it as an external hard drive or you cannot open the various folders and files, then the hard disk is definitely faulty.
Then you need to replace the faulty hard drive.

Server does not recognize 18.3 Ultra3(U160) SCSI Hard Drive


Right click on My Computer, go to Manage, then go to Disk Management. Newly installed drives don't show up formated, so you'll have to right-click on the new drive and format it. Then it should show up.

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

My Seagate Free Agent Classic external hard drive won't work


Have you tried a different USB port? Some USB chipsets are prone to frying if you use the front accessible ports. Also, try the drive on another computer.

Installing new seagate pata/100 hard drive and belkin ata/133 controller


There should be a tab on the back of the actual hard drive where you can switch it to CS "cable select", You just take the tab out of the slot that it is in and switch it to where the cable select is. I am sure that the drive is set to something different or it would be working.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
