Maybe your secondary hard drive is write protected due to third party software during the old installation of the system such as norton data recovery.

Hope this will be helpful to you.

Windows installation setup says not find any hdd disk drives installed and says cannot continue

You need to go into BIOS by pressing an F key during boot. Look on the screen for correct Function key. Check if BIOS still recognizes a hard drive. If not, you need to physically reconnect drive and try again.

If you are attempting to boot from a hard disk that was from another computer you will have problems because of architectural differences. You would need to place it into an identical pc build. You can install a new operating system then read the disk as an external or secondary drive, or do a new install from CD onto the same disk.

When i start my computer it says press f1 to

This means your hard drive has either failed or is disconnected.

Given the age of the computer it's most likely the drive has failed.

Let me know if there is important data saved on the computer. Otherwise, replace the drive and re-install windows and it should work again.

I am replacing my hard disc on a Fujitsu Siemens T4215 / windows XP Pro SP3. the replacement disc is a Seagate Momentus 7200.4. Could you give me a procedure on what to do: 1. Before the replacement 2....

hi md-consult,

from your request I presume you never have done any hardware replacement before...this may take awhile and I guess you will help if you give me more data:

First of all:

- if you want to replace your operating disk by the new one( you will have to back-up and copy all the data on it, and set up windows anew and reinstall all the programs in the end)


think about keeping the old one and adding some extra data storage space to your system (easier, plus there should be some IDE-connectors still free...)

please come back with more details on the windows version u are using in case you are not sure..

thought about it?

I'll give you advice on the second from the hardware side only, I leave data back-up to you, as this depends on the windows version you are using (win2000 has an easy to use back-up wizard, it allows you to back up your whole system(data, programs and drivers) in one big file on an external data storage medium like thumb drive or DVD, win xp and above lack that, you need extra back-up program....)

if confused already, please come back with info on which version if windows you are using, to guide you through this for win2000....

for the hardware side:

- boot up, enter BIOS by pressing Del, F1 or F2, see list of IDE drives,
write down order of appearance and come back with that info to me on fixya..!
-now pull power cord, dissassemble tower, find out if your power supply has more than 250 Watts of capacity
(you will need at least that much to support all the two ahrddisks plus drives plus mainboard, upgrade to 350Watts or more, a new supply!, if necessary)
- see how the actual harddisk is wired up( follows grey data cables, see if upper end leads to optic drive.

Now do come back to giving info on :

your decision
windows version
list of drives(as seen in bios)

C U soon?

My computer system dell dimension xsp-t700r i want to install another new window operating system but it will run to some extend and stop, though i have run several window operating disk yet it could not...

dear mary,

it may be the case that the harddisk you want to install the new windows version to
is either full or has bad sectors in it,
in both cases it is necessary to fully erase all data and format it, before installing the new Operation System!

you perhaps can try to install win2000,
let it remove any existing installations and partitions(blank the disk) from the harddisk, then run a chkdsk scan from the recovery console, format the disk afterwards and quit without installing fully.
Now you can choose your desired windows version.
It could make sense not to install a later win than win xp home, for this machine is more than a decade old and therefore remarkably slow. Use Win2000 Professional edition if you can get a hold of a copy.

To receive extended help in setting up the system, please come back via

It doesn't boot from hard disk

can you still go to CMOS SETUP?
how many beep and beep long of your pc while booting?
if you can still go to cmos setup try delete all partition using your windows setup then install a fresh copy of windows. if there are no partition found means theres a problem with your hardisk try put your hard disk to secondary if in primary or use different data cable might be the problem if the data cable is not the problem see the power supply of your hard disk is fine try swap the power suppply of your hard disk and cd-rom drive or extra power supply if power supply is not problem .
Buy a Brand New Harddisk might fix it your hard disk might have plenty of bad sector thats why doesn't boot anymore.
Hope i help you out ^)^
