Run only win 98.get's blue screen when trying to install win xp,vista on win7


you get this message when there is some hardware which is incompatible or fails / crashes during the installation of OS since you have tried a different hard disk already it cannot be that so try with a different Ram or update bios / replace motherboard.

It wont boot, but read corectly at bios screen, but when i try to reinstall an OS such as linux ubuntu, win xp and win 7, it says that cant find any HDD..@ linux Os, its readable but when we try to format...


I would recommend using a boot disk and run chkdsk (windows boot disk) or fsck (linux) This will help fix bad sectors if you use the correct options. USe the "/?" in windows for help and "man fsck" in linux.

Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Hi I have a Fujitsu Mobile MHV2120BH 120 GB SATA Hard Drive, I want to install XP home on it. But Ive been reading that I need Sata/raid drivers for the computer to see the drive. I have a HP Pavilion...


The SATA drivers will be on the XP disk. Just put the XP disk in your CD drive, partition the new disk and load the OS.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Xp install disk cant find any hard drives on my hp pavillion dv 5000. it was given to me without any install disks


You will have to delete the partitions of the hard drive before using the xp disk because if there is any partitions formatted as EXT (non dos) the xp disk will not read them. You can download a dos disk of the internet to do this. Once you have used the fdisk command which you can use to re-partition your hdd you should be able to install xp no problem.

CANT BOOT FOR REINSTALLATION OF XP, IT SEZ "NTLDR" IS MISSING, ALSO MENTIONS SOMETHING ABOUT THE HARD DRIVE NOT WORKING


If you have the OS disks try a repair first. Run the OS disk and choose the repair option rather than reformatting. That usually fixes ntldr issues.

No boot disk error when hard drive disconnected


Are you making the disk the "master" device when you plug it in to the PC?
