Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.
Good morning! first, make sure your external hard drive is properly connected to the USB port, then try to start / restart your computer again, automatically the computer should recognized the attached external HDD. best regards.
hi! there,set up exe. that was when your setting up win 98 you have to install that came from floppy disk before you can install win 98.there is an os win 98 in your system you have to delete that previous os before installing another win xp.restart ur computer. press F2 to open your bios set-up . then select bios set-up priority your cd-room drive second,your hard drive. last, quit and save set-up. and then your computer will restart. insert your cd windows xp then reinstall your window xp. delete the previous os then follow the set up on your window xp until you install your new window xp.
Ok, if the hard drive already had Windows XP on it, it has the configuration for the computer it came out of. you need to reinstall windows xp with the hard drive in your computer so it can properly detect all the ports that your computer has.
Windows XP Professional doesnt require USB Drivers, these Driver built in Windows XP professional or there already present in ur system..........
so go ahead connect anything to ur usb port(like digital camera, mouse, pen dirve, flash driver , memory card reader,..portable harddisk , digital cameras)
when u insert any of the component(for eg: pen drive) in to the usb port OS will automatically detected these devices and install USB Drivers.... dont worry... about this and be rest assured....OS will do the work for u...............
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.
