New hard drive operating system loaded, now cant find hard drive

Installed new hard drive in hp ze2000. I then re-installed the xp home operating system. Used the hp repair disk to load all drivers, got all the updates for windows.Thought everything was fine. Next day computer wont boot up, cant find operating system. Went into the bios and it says that the hard drive isnt there. During installation it booted and re-booted every time I had to restart. Any ideas as to what happened.

Check the cables it properly connected or not. after start up press F8 key to check the installed hard drive is detected or not. if it is not, check with BIOS settings

Im trying to put a new seagate 40gb sata hdrive into my hp nc6320,when i try to load xp to install it tells me there is no hard drive in the computer


New Hard drives do not come with an operating system on them. It's basically a blank disc. You would need to have an XP operating installation disc or the original system restore discs that came with your computer in order to load the XP operating system. If you do not have either of these discs, you will need to purchase an operating system and install it so that you have something on the hard drive to run.

It could also be the conncetion came loose, which can happen with IDE hard drives if the laptop gets moved around a lot. Remove the hard drive and take it to an electronics store to have it tested, or if you have a friend with an external enclosure (2.5" IDE interface, they cost between$10-20) you can hook it up to another computer via the USB port

I can boot up when i put in my new hard drive


New hard drives have to be formatted and an operating system installed to be able to boot up.

The operating system depends on what you want to put on there

As you are posting in the XP HOME section I would suggest you set your bios to boot from CD
Place the XP HOME CD in the drive and boot up
It will say press any key to boot from CD DO SO !

Follow the on screen instructions until setup is complete and then start to install the drivers you need and activate XP

Compaq Presario C300 Recoivery Disc 2 corrupt


Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
