The XP setup disk does not have the correct driver for your disk controller. Download the correct driver and save it to a floppy. When you boot from the XP install CD look for the prompt at the bottom of the blue setup screen that says "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver…” at the bottom bar. Hit F6 and follow the prompts to specify the driver on the floppy disk.

I have a k8u-x motherboard.. my problem is i cant install winxp in it because it doesnt detect any hardisk during the setup. All my floppy drives are damage as well as my floppies. Is there any way to...


Your trying to install windows 3.1 or 98 ? I have never seen Windows XP or newer on floppy disk is why I ask. That will not resolve your problem though. If you are sure you have the hard drive installed and connected with at least one of them set to Master, if you are installing 2, You may need to enter Bios and have it auto detect the Hard Drives in the Bios. If the Bios doesn't recognize the Hard drive or you have 2 hard drives and one isn't set to Master it won't matter what media you use you won't be able to install anything on the hard drive.

2 hard drives and 2 OS in one tower. win98 and winXP pro How can I configure so I have a boot option at startup?


Install first the Win98 OS to your Drive C: and then Install the WinXP to your drive D:
after you restart the system it will prompt you to boot either on Win98 or XP. You can also do this in one hdd only. all you have to do is to repartition the hdd

FUJITSU MHT2060B-SATA hard drive driver wanted


Get the drivers from the motherboard homepage, extract the file at a floppy or USB, and start WinXP installation from your cd. At the begining at the bottom line is a message like "for ... drivers press F6 to install" Press F6 and after sometime the will prompt you to provide the drivers from the floppy. In the WinXP sp3 the generic SATA drivers are already on the installation cd.

32 GB hard drive limitation


WinXP & Win2k cannot create FAT32 partitions larger than 32 GB.IF you want to use partitions larger than 32GB in WinXp then you will need to install a third party partition tool like Partition magic. Partition magic is probably the best coz i have formatted my 200GB HDD in 2 mins flat!
