Xp can only "See" a hard drive up to about 128GB, if its bigger than that, XP won't install.

Make sure your drive is properly connected, and jumper in the right place (1 drive, set to master)
If it used to work before your problem, should be ok.

Then boot from your windows disk. If your bios is set to boot from the hard drive, if there's no operating system on your hard drive it can't boot.

If its set to boot from the hard drive first, it may, after a few seconds revert to booting from the disk drive. If not, while booting watch the screen, at the bottom it you should see "Press F2 for setup or F10 for boot options" or something similar. To temporarily change the settings, choose the boot options menu and select "Boot from CD". Restart and you should be on your way.

If that doesn't work, you may need a new hard drive.

My lenovo 3000 G430 model laptop is formated and no audio device is found installed xp sp2 how can i get free audio driver installer


The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Hard drive replacement


Hard drives are easy to replace, they are located in a separate compartment. Depending upon the model of your laptop, it could be located on the bottom or on the front or left or right hand side of the laptop. The hard drive may have an adapter connector that fits over the 44 data pins on the hard drive.

After you install a new hard drive, you need to format the hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive plus the device drivers of the devices that are installed on the laptop eg. video, audio, modem, LAN and wireless etc.

I am trying to Downgrade an ASUS R1F from Vista Pro to XP Pro. How do I get the tablet to boot from the CD


Hi, if you have computer knowledge, the easiest thing to do is to take the laptop sata hard drive out and connect it to your computer with your sata cables and power and boot your computer up and the laptop drive will be a slave drive then. Now you can back it up if you want and then format it.

Now turn your computer off and put the hard drive back in your laptop. Because there in no Operating system the laptop will ask for a boot device. Now you will be able to boot from your xp cd.

I don't know why but I have found most laptops and computers with vista don't like to boot from a cd and over ride the boot options and go directly into vista which makes it hard for people who want to down grade to XP.

Why someone would want Vista beats me.

You can also load up into bios and change your boot options in there. If not already set as first boot device to be you cdrom/dvd you can change it to be. But like I said most of the time with Vista it doesn't matter! Vista will still boot first. But it is worth trying.

I NEED TO UP GRADE MY COMPUTER I HAVE WINDOW MILINIUM


You need to purchase a Windows XP or Vista installation disk with its Product installation Code. You can purchase a upgrade version cheaper than the full product, but you need the original ME CD.
You may not be able to purchase Windows XP and Windows Vista may not work efficiently on your computer because of the age of your computer and Vista is very resource hungry.
You may consider purchasing a new computer with Windows 7 as a better option. Windows 7 is due to be released in Oct.

Fresh vista install won't take and laptop acts all goofy


seems like a hardware problem...Hard Disk Probably.but don't take chances...first remove any external hardware attached [usb,printer etc.remove the battery also]then try to install the OS use another CD or you can even use Windows XP.Make sure you change the SATA setting in the BIOS for XP. You did not mention the error message or when does it hangs while installing Vista.Try changing the Hard Disk.If there's still problem then it's your motherboard. As far as overheating is concerned you need to see how long does it remain powered on.And when you switch it on again does it turns off quicker than before. Take it to the service center.

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual
