It could be multiple problems :
first your system doesnt has the software to display more gb,normally there is a software that comes with the hard drive to install it, if you dont have it, you can google the website of hard disk company for it

eg seagate maxtor have their s/w which is free downloadable


secondly your system needs to be configured to display the new drive, go to systems tool administrative tools computer management tool options and u can view the hard drive and format it or create new partitions to display it

let me know if this works

second

Hi there, i am new to this site & hope you can help, i have been given windows xp pro + service pack 2 but have no installation code to install whith, i have tryd the unnatended folder but the pro key...


The 25 digit code actually comes with the cd and is not on the cd but is a yellow label that was in the box when it was purchased.
I would go back to the person who gave it to you and ask them for that label. My guess is the disk came with a computer that has the windows sticker on the side and that is why you do not have the license number.
Unfortunately the only way to get a legal license is to buy it.

You need the Intel Pro 100 driver for XP. Go to the following web link at Intel: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/network/pro100ve and download the driver. Copy it to a flash drive. Put the flash drive into your PC that needs the LAN driver and double-click it to install it.

Changing windows 4 to windows 2000 xp


First off, there is a big difference between windows 2000 and xp.
She needs her windows 2000 install disks and to re-install windows. Then she needs to install her service packs onto it. Either that or upgrade to windows xp. Id suggest she upgrade if she has decent hardware(memory, cpu and hard drive space)

There is no shortcut or work around unless you want to start using pirated stuff, which is probably not a good idea since most of that stuff is just an avenue for viruses and backdoor programs.

There should be a way for you to get your computer back to factory standard. Manufacturers either hide part of the hard drive for this reason, or they give you a CD to use to do the same. If you did not receive a CD like this then chances are the information you need is hidden on your hard drive. Contact your manufacturer or the place you bought your PC from and they should be able to tell you how to access that info.

NO COA on Windows XP Pro CD...new CD never installed..?????


Google freeware program called Key Finder. May work, lost sticker on computer once and downloaded this and it gave me the key when I clicked on it . Of course you will have to download
Windows disk first and then load Key Finder. Would burn on CD before you load Windows. Worth a shot.

Have problem with windows Xp pro.


You can get the correct drivers from the Gateway website. Use another computer and download all the Windows XP files for that model number from the website. You need your model number of your pc. Get the files for your motherboard, video, sound card, network card, etc. save them to a usb key or a burn them to a cd. Take the usb key/cd to the other system and load the drivers.

This will get your system back up and running in now time.

I hope this helps you.

Crashing during Windows Setup


Check out any hardware that doesnot supports windows xp. remove that and reload the os. it works. or remove all the additional addon cards like modem, network card, printers etc., (just maintain only hard disk, cd rom and floppy drive)then install the os. once os installs add the components one by one to so that the os will detect one by one cheers!
