Question about Computers & Internet
I START TO LOAD WINDOWS XP AND IT STATES HARD NOT FOUND, BEFORE I REFORMATTED THE HD IT WOULD LOAD XP BUT WOULD LOCK UP. THIS HAS A NEW MOTHERBOARD AND KEYBOARD EQUIPPED WITH A SATA 160 GIG, IT IS RECOGNIZED IN BIOS. I HAVE TRIED MULTIPLE TIMES, AND A COUPLE IT TRIED TO RESTART WINDOWS AND SAID BOOTMGR NOT FOUND. HELP!
This is a little confusing, because BOOTMGR is not part of XP. Vista or better only. Use Win 7 OS disc and choose the Repair option.

first thing to try is the manufacturers diagnostic software.if that doesn't work try the ultimate boot cd
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ it is free and has a lot of utilities for hdd diagnostics. if you still can't get a definitive answer i would say you have a faulty logic board.

Here is the Toshiba official line on that error.
If you've already run through their fixes, you could try using the Ultimate Boot CD to test the hard drive, or run Chkdsk c: /r from the recovery console to attempt to recover any bad sectors
Then consult this link and apply the pertinent fixes to attempt to repair the MBR.
Other possibly helpful links here and here.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.
