Question about Fujitsu LifeBook Computers & Internet
I got a new IDE harddrive for my Fujitsu Lifebook B3020D and I tried to install XP Pro on it, however, when I'm prompted to go ahead with the installation, I get a "HD no found" message. I know the HD is good, the software is legit. I already tried enabling/disabling the IDE option under device configuration in BIOS. That didn't work. Am I missing something like a driver maybe or a setting in BIOS?

Firstly, the system configuration is normally in management menu or similair on your programmes menu. If not you will find that the bios menu in most laptops are basic and normally the main settings are hidden; you will need to speak to HP Technical for assistance in that. There is no reason to not be able to upgrade to XP Pro; but with an upgrade you would need to keep your original XP Home installation, otherwise you will need to completely install XP Pro firsly using the format option when you insert the Windows disc. As with most laptops all programmes and drivers are usually on a seperate partition on your hardrive, so be aware you are going to lose all this when formatting, so back up all files and settings. You may also have restore discs, if this being the case all programmes and operating system will be on them, so no need to worry about losing anything from your hardrive apart from your documents. Why do you need to dissable SATA?

If the SATA drive is operating in 3.0 Gbps mode and your motherboard can only support 1.5 Gbps mode, the drive will not be detected in BIOS or XP. Try jumpering the drive to SATA 1.5 Gbps mode. The label on your hard drive should indicate which pins should be shorted to achieve this setting; if not, look up your particular model on WD's website to find the manual.

Can you just clarify that you installed XP with the new IDE drive installed in the notebook and that you have selected disc 0 in the bios as IDE and that it is aslo set to boot from that drive?
What you are describing also fits the symptoms of installing XP on a SATA drive without installing SATA drivers first. (XP doesn't install SATA drivers, Vista does.)
So this does sound like a bios setting issue

SOURCE: USB not working on HP NX7010
I have the same problem. No sctive USB ports, yet device manager shows ok. updated system BIOS and Intel chipset from HP site - still no good. Also removed bluetooth unit, still no good.
Turned off USB power management, still no good!
The laptop was working perfectly until this happened.
Any more suggestions?
