New hard drive operating system not found


The reason why you cannot install Windows on your hard drive is this model Sony has a SATA disk controller.
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.

I tried to install windows xp on sata hard disk but it couldn't find any hard disk in installation.in bios i can see the hard drisk that it shows RAID hard disk 60gb.my msi model is ms-7113 ver 1.what...


get to BIOs ..locate the hard disk ..and change the setting from the ACHI ..to sata like ide..or compatible ..Or ..use use a usb ..or a floppy ..to enter a raid driver for it ..when you install it ..If you pay attention ..when you run the installation of the xp ..Just after starting to load files ..(soon after press any key to boot from cd ) ..it says to press f 6 for to load 3rd party driver ..press it ..and use some kinda memory device ..that will be see..and load teh driver ..and will work )
Or ..just disable the sata raid ..for the hard disk ..and it will be seen after that when you load the operation system ..If it is a newish model ..it will not be affected ..only old models feel the difference in speed between the modes..

All you've got to do is:

1) Insert the new hard drive.
2) Press the F8 key as the laptop boots. This will take you into the BIOS.
3) Locate the disk drive priority setting in the bios.
4) Set Priority 1 to your CD/DVD drive and priority 2 to the 320GB hard drive.
5) Save settings and exit the BIOS. This should reboot your laptop.
6) Insert the Windows XP CD.
7) It should not start the setup as it recognises the CD.
8) I will recommend that you format the drive before you install, go along with the format (make sure it does a full format).
9) After the format it will reboot your system.
10) You will be prompted with a message like "Press any key to boot form CD", DON'T press anything otherwise it will start all over again.
11) Now it should start the install. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.

Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.

Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.

Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.

Asus p5vd2 mx MB has 2 IDE ports.I'm planning to use Sata port for HARD DRIVE & IDE for CD rom.Do I need to install additional Sata drivers? Or much better of Using conventional IDE port for both HARD & CD...


If you are using a SP2 XP or Vista installation disk, then the SATA drivers are usually not needed as both have the drivers built in. SATA is far better to use for your hard drive. If perchance the drivers are needed, they should have come with your motherboard but I highly doubt they will be. I haven't had one yet in a new installation where the drivers were needed.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

My hard drive on my acer 2010 died so I was thinking about replacing it. Do I need to do anything special to it before I load the operating system disk, etc.. Will it boot up and give me directions?


You just install the replacement hdd, the operating disk will prompt you to format and partition (if required) (windows xp & vista) once all loaded you wil probably have to load some drivers.
