I assume you are talking about the optical drive being a bit dodgey.
Just purchase an external optical drive and set your BIOS to boot from USB. First, check to make sure your computer supports that. If not, then just replace the drive?

Windows can't find any hard drives...when installing xp


It sounds possible that your Windows XP install CD does not contain the necessary hard disk device drivers for the drive used in your Dell Vostro laptop and you would need to load these drivers separately during the XP install when the option is given to use third-party device drivers.

Some laptops may provide options in their BIOS settings to use a compatibility mode of operation for newer SATA hard drives that will make them visible to bootable utilities such as disk imaging software and older OS install CD's.

I have the same problem the toshiba recovery disk i get error message 10f8060017.its a toshiba A105-2194 win xp media edition. i have tried everything wiped the disk to all 0's. Used a win xp original disc...


You have tried all possible solutions and troubleshooting.

My Suggestion is to check the Warranty of the Hard Disk and get it replaced. this possible shows a mismatch between the Laptop and hard drive.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...
