Check the settings of the internal setups. This is using the BIOS itself and hitting a particular key before anything happens. On some machines it is F1 or the DEL key. In the basic setup there are settings for the boot order and floppy drives and HD type. Make sure these are set correctely.

ALSO on one of mine I have to use a formatting/partitioning program supplied by the HD manufacturer (in this case Maxtor) to pre-prepare the drive beofre trying to install WIndows.

Your problem could be that the hard disk is not ACTIVE.
Boot up with a DOS disk (floppy or CD or USB) and run FDISK, select 4 to Display Partition Info. If the C drive does not have A under Status then press ESC and select 2 to Set active partition and then set Partition C to active.

Not responding hard disk


The problem is that the hard drive cannot be read properly.

The list of the things that may produce such a problem is bad power supply, bad data cable, bad mainboard, too many unproper shutdowns that damaged file consystency and bad hard drive (the HD electronic board or the inner plates), anyway, if you can get windows to load up run a check disk with the windows utility here are the steps

1) press START
2) press MY COMPUTER
3) right click on the drive and choose PROPERTIES
4) press the TOOLS tab
5) press CHECK NOW
6) tag (V) both options you get in the new menu--AUTOMATICALLY... and SCAN...
7) if it is your primary HD you will receive a notice that the function cannot be performed at this time, answer YES
8) turn off the computer and restart
9) the check will start automatically on computer restart

If the problem continues BACKUP any important data (if you can) and take it to a repair shop, make sure they BACKUP your data BEFORE they try to solve the problem.

Trying to boot from a hd from my old comp


Hi,

MS Windows XP when installed to an HD will "marry" itself to the hardware of the original computer specifically the motherboard. Transplanting the HD to another PC with a different motherboard will result in a cycling blue screen of death or protective message requiring that you reboot. Running in Safe Mode will not also be allowed.

You need to re-install your OS (boot from CD) but choose the 2nd repair option rather than a new/clean install or the first repair option if you want to preserve your other applications as well as your settings/configuration. Doing this will allow the OS to install the new device drivers and delete the old ones.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

God luck and kind regards.
