I have a wd sata hard disk and i cant setup windows xp on it, it the monitor says ..... " windows can not find any hard disk instal into your motherboard " i need to solve this problem please thank you


Windows XP didn't have support for sata drives. You will need to load the driver by pressing F6 when you start the Windows setup. You will see the message
Press F6 to load 3rd party drivers at the bottom of the screen when Windows is installing.

Press F8 during system startup repeatedly and see if a menu comes. If it comes then you will find a option named Safe Mode. Select it and press enter twice.

Hi!
Would you plz explain more!
What I understand is you want to restart your computer but you can't!
If this is the problem, You need to provide me with system you working on, if it's XP, you may try this:
Click "Run" from "Start Menu" then type: sfc /scannow
It will ask you to insert the Win XP CD in the CD ROM Drive, then press continue.
Wait untill the operation finishes then try again.
If your problem is different, please explain more!

Cant install window XP. showing messge harddisk is not powered on. pleade advice me what to do. thnx


What type of hard drive do you have? Check that it has the proper power cords, and that it's properly detected in the BIOS. Some SATA Hard drives have both, a SATA power and a traditional 4 pin power plug, and you should only use one of them at a time.

Sounds to me like the motherboard has not properly detected this hard drive yet, or it's a RAID volume and windows doesn't have the driver to install it yet.

Post back with more detailed specs and I can help you further.

Disk read error no recovery cd


the BIOS is hard wired into the motherboard and contains all information about the hardware on M/board.usually accessed by pressing del key or f2 key you will have how to do this at the bottom of the boot up screen read all info carefully it should list what your hard drive is and how big
also if hard drive is automatically detected
if you access it set it for default loadings and try again to boot

The motherboard cannot detect the hard drive/ hard disk


You cant install xp on one machine and then move the drive to another. By nature the xp install is tied to the hardware of the machine it is installed on

Boot Failure


i am assuming you have allowed the bios to detect that there is a different hard drive fitted as it will be looking to boot from an non existent drive. If you have fitted a new HDD with an operating system already on it then you will have to repair windows as its a change in hardware. If you cant get the bios to see the drive then the motherboard has an IDE or Sata connector problem.
