Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.

Phone not showing network connnection



The repair process probably didn't do the trick. Have you tried resetting the TCP/IPstack, applying winsock and/or crypto fixes?

The TCP/IP stack (netshell) can reset manually by simply going back and using the classic command prompt screen.

Hit the Windows Logo Key, if your keyboard has it, and then alternately press the R key.

OR

Simply go to Start -> Run

THEN

Type in the given text field: cmd

Press Enter key or click OK/Run.

A black screen with a blinking cursor and some nifty white text should appear (should bring back some memories!). Go ahead and type in the following, EXACT:

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

Go ahead and press the Enter key when your finished typing this out.

It should just execute, and when complete, go ahead and exit out of the command prompt window. Finally, go ahead and if you haven't already, run the winsock fix (it supposedly does the netsh fix in this tool, but we did it just in case!), which can be downloaded on line through a simple google search. Then reboot your machine. See if this does it, if not, try the crypto fix. It usually works to machines that have a hard time updating through MS windows update website, but i've seen this fix work miracles for networking issues.

If all else fails I would try three things...

1) Re-install the LATEST driver for your network card. If nothing happens STILL, pop another one in a PCI expansion slot, and see if this is detected and installed properly by windows XP. It's preferable you use a standard PCI 10/100 Intel PRO LAN card or something by Linksys, since Windows should have stable generic drivers for most of these cards. If you can see the expansion card in network connections as a Local Area Connection, I would say that your integrated LAN MIGHT be defective, but I doubt this.

2) Do a complete OS restore. This means basically to back up all your data that you absolutely need, and perform a full Windows XP installation from scratch. Boot to the CD, make sure you format your hard drive, use the full format if you want to write zeroes to the drive, guaranteeing that all your previous data will be gone, and then reinstall XP through the Windows XP setup screen. Sometimes these windows repair sessions don't do the trick... they copy over usually just the essentials, like DLLs, popular EXE files, etc.

3) Apply or Reinstall Windows XP Service Pack 2. This usually fixes errors such as corrupted Windows Firewall/Security Center, and it may fix your network connections service. IDK which service it is in Windows XP, i think its the Network Connections service? Go ahead and check to see if its running, or if its even there (think administrative tools in control panel).

Still want more help? PM me or just re-post with your progress, and good luck!!

I've inserted PC/system hard drive into enclosure and connected by USB port to my stand-alone computer . . .How do I recognize or where do I find the menu to allow me to access the attachment/enclosure...


You do not have to do anything out of the ordinary for it to recognise. Connect the USB cable to the PC. If the hard drive is above 250Gb in capacity, connect the external power supply to it. Turn on any switc/buttons in the casing. Your PC should detect it as a Mass Storage device or as a regular hard disk.

Boot a computer


I don't know it all ... I dont think you can run two computers from one drive. You may get a different POV from other responders.

Each computer is suppose to come with its own license. I'm thinking you can load XP on a new drive in the computer that needs one ... you supposedly have the license on the computer (look on the bottom for the key), give it a try. Worst case, you will have to purchase a new license for XP ... but if that is what you want, dont dilly-dally. XP on the way out. Alternative, you have a box of spare parts.

Harddisk failure to bootup


Only a HDD with a properly installed OS, a valid boot sector and an active partition will 'Boot'

Did it ever work? Are you sure the POWER is there. Are you sure the cables are on right and the HDD is identified in the BIOS of the PC? Are you sure the drive jumpers are correct? Check all of these.

If this is a brand new HDD the first thing you must do is Partition the HDD, and if the HDD will be your BOOT drive, you'll also need to make the partition 'active. Then, in either case you'll have to format it. Use the FDISK utility and then the FORMAT command under DOS or type dskmgmt.msc within Windows (Using the Start, Run box) to do this procedure.

If it is NOT a new HDD, these procedures will wipe your data so be careful.

If it did work and doesn't anymore.. listen to the PC when you apply power. Does the HDD spinup, click a bit and get quiet, or do you hear it repeatedly spinning up, clicking constantly, starting and stopping?? These signs are not good and usually mean the drive controller board is hosed. There is a 50% chance of fixing this problem with an EXACT No. replacement controller board..

If it does spin up, clicks a bit and stops making noises, we can assume is is reaching proper velocity and the heads are finding 'home'. (Good!)

The next thing to look at is your BOOT sequence which YOU can change in the BIOS. Watch the screen when the machine is booting (or trying to) and the POST will usually display a 'Press F2 or F10 or F12 or DEL to enter BIOS " message

Most Older PC boot from Floppy, then CD, then HDD... Newer go from CDROM to HDD (no floppy)
If there is a floppy disk in the A: drive, it will hang forever looking at it trying to boot. Pop it out and try again. In some cases, the same scenerio is possible with a CD in the CDROM - eject it.

If the HDD 'tries' and you get an error onscreen, I can help further knowing WHAT that error is ;-)

Without that knowledge, I'll guess that the boot sector is corrupt- one or more of the HIDDEN or SYSTEM files was changed or deleted by virus/trojan, program, hacker or user and these will have to be put back (manually or using O/S CDROM repair option) before it will ever work as a boot disk again.

Complex, eh?

If the HDD will at least spinup and find 'home' (go ready) With the proper software tools, it might be possible to rescue, and get all the data off too even if it looks 'dead'. In some cases it is as simple as editing the Boot.ini file or replacing missing ones.

These files are NEEDED for a Windows system to boot:
COMMAND.COM
MSDOS.SYS
IO.SYS
NTLDR
BOOT.INI
Boot ini should look like this for a 1 HDD system:

[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

What else can you tell me?

1. Possibly a virus/trojan hosed the boot sector: can be fixed with the CDROM "Repair' option but NOT the first one you see. Choose Install, Press F8, let windows FIND your Windows install and THEN choose REPAIR. It will take 30-40 Min. Be sure when it asks for Account, you type one that already is NOT on the PC b/c it will wipe over it. Ex: If you were 'Administrator' before it broke, type "Admin" for the repair. You can access all you your \User\Administrator files (old stuff) later, or move them to \User\Admin.

2. Possibly a virus/trojan made the boot partition 'inactive' - DL, burn and use BART to Boot your PC from CDROM and then run dskmgmt.msc to fix.

3. Possibly a virus/trojan modified the Boot.ini file - Edit 'default' line to look liike this: default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Windows
[operating systems]

Good luck!
Let me know how it goes
