HARD DRIVE NOT EXIST ERROR!!!


If you installed Linux successfully on your hard disk then the hard disk is OK.
If you are installing Windows Xp and it does not detect the hard disk but the BIOS detects the hard disk then -
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hi there! Yesterday I was installing Windows XP


Sorry to hear your having issues installing the OS.

There is two problems your facing one is the disk is so scratched that the system can not read the disk or the hard drive has bad sectors or clusters which are failing when being written to.

You have two options to fix this one is to make sure the cd is clean an or replace your hard drive.

General disk read error message tend to be from hard drive cylinder's.

Unable to format, partition,ins. os and boot my toshiba TE2100..


The CMOS needs to be set to first read the CD or DVD drive before it reads the Hard drive. Once your XP disk is in the drive it will boot from the CD drive and setup the computer, The CMOS is acessed by turning on the computer and immediatly pressing either the deleat key or the F! or F2 key try each one till you get to CMOS then look for boot section. Set CD drive to first your HD drive to second.

You probably are using Windows XP. With this error, you must re install your Windows XP operating system with your XP CD.

I have this exact laptop and was never happy with the speed or stability with the Vista OS. I found that after intalling windows XP, this laptop now perform optimally. If you want more information on this solution click here. (note that the drivers link in this article is temporarily down, but I will be posting an other one promptly. Booting XP from a USB drive is no fun! If you really want to have Vista on this laptop, then you might want to consider dual booting XP / Vista, I will be posting an article on that same website.
