Question about Computers & Internet
I tried to install XP on my Dell inspirion which has come with vista pre loaded. I booted with the XP cd and at the installation screen, there was an error that says" there is no harddisk to install the os, please connect to the system...." something like this. how to solve this. when my laptop has 160 gb hdd why is it not showing?
Actually you cant install operating system. first u have to install lower version and then install higher version of os. install original operating system dont use pirated version

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
this will erase you operating system you have to have a operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
hope this helps
