Question about HP Computers & Internet
It runs post then says no bios installed, but when i hit the F2 button it goes into the phoenix utility where is still see no hard drives.It didnt come with an OS. I am trying to install a fresh XP and it also says no drives attached.Help
Your computer is failing to see that hardisk because it is not formated. download a DOS 6.22 bootdisk. boot from it, and type fdisk
then type 1, hit enter
tell it to make a primary partiton
follow the onscreen instructions.
once you are done it will ask you to reboot
put the cd in the computer and hit enter
then type format c: /s
it will make c: a bootable drive
then run your windows installer
