Since this is a fresh install of windows, suggest you download the manufactures hard disk drive floppy disk setup software. Each manufacture has their own bootable setup software that works in a DOS like window. You'll be able to check the drive, set the drives
FAT = File Allocation Table. Check the drive for errors & format the drive just to name a few things.
Once completed remove the bootable floppy disk/CD.
Insert your windows CD & reboot your system. Install windows again. (Do not use windows to format your drive. (You'll have already done that with the manufacture's software disk/CD).
Example, here is the link for Seagate IDE drive's;
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools

Here is the link for Maxtor drives;
http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/maxtor_desktop/

Western Digital drive's;
http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?wdc_lang=en

Samsung hard disk drive's;
http://www.samsung.com/global/business/hdd/support/utilities/Support_DiskManager.html

My bet is there is something not right with the drive. Using the manfacture disk software will correct just about any problem that may be hindering data to be written to the drive.

Good luck!

How to install window xp


Hi, you will need to set up your hard drive first. During initial boot fase press the F8 key which will take you to the BIOS. Select boot device and change primary boot device to CD Rom. Insert XP Cd into drive, select save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD when this appears by pressing any key. Allow files to install, when this completes you will need to delete any previous operating system, partition hard drive and then format hard drive. Once this sompletes reboot, ignoring boot from CD this time and XP will start to install.

Windows xp will not boot


If you just installed windows then take the cd out and let the computer reboot on its own. Windows will ask you to replace the OS disk later.

So just restart the computer with nothing in the CD drive.

Also make sure in BIOS that the Hard drive is the first boot device. Don't need the CD drive as first anymore.

See if that helps.

Asus m2n-mx se plus windows xp wont boot


All you need is the hard drive manufacture's setup software. Flashing you're bios is not the answer. On each drive (SATA & IDE) is the name & model number. Go to the Mf's site & download the free setup software, tools & utilities. Most sites will list software you can download to creat a bootable floppy disk or software to creat a bootable CD. Run the software on the SATA drive. Than unplug the SATA data cable & connect one IDE at a time. Again down load the Mfg's setup software. Do the same for the other IDE. Disconnect the data cable for the IDE drives. Do a fresh install of windows. (DO not allow windows to format the drive)! Just install windows & the motherboard drivers. Than update windows. Durring reboot press & hold the power on button on the PC untill it powers off. Connect the two IDE drives. Check the pin settings on the IDE drives. Set AS; Primary IDE drive 1 as master with a slave. Set IDE two as a slave drive.
Check the bios Boot setting. Make sure the SATA drive is listed in the boot order. Save & exit the PC. Windows should boot just fine.

Good Luck!

install raid drivers only if you are certain that you are on RAID and even before you install raid drivers make sure the RAID controller is set to on in BIOS. if you dont have RAID setup then please dont install the RAID drivers. the only reason i think you are computer is not going past the windows xp logo is you might have floppy drive in the boot sequence(in the BIOS screen) set to on or you must be having a USB device connected to the computer. set it to "no boot" and things should be fine.
