Most likely due to the fact that this may be a SATA hard drive and your installation of the operating system does not know how to access this kind of hard drive due to the fact

1. It may not have the latest SATA drivers which you can obtain from your motherboard manufacturers website are not installed onto the operating system disc ( this is called slip streaming the driver onto the operating system disc ) which you can use nLite for www.nliteos.com

2. You do not have IDE mode enabled in the bios / cmos of your motherboard in terms of how the motherboard should access the hard drive - if you have an option for IDE mode as far as how it treats the hard drive then you may not need to do option 1

3. It may be an idea to disable or play around with AHCI and check the sata settings in the bios / cmos on your motherboard.

If you are still having issues then post back.

Hi i am Syed Tarique Anwer,From Yamaha India,i having a Toshiba Laptop(Portege S100),there was some problem with OS ,so i formatted the HDD on diffrent system and reinstalled the HDD again in this...


It sounds like the HDD controller may be bad.When you thought it was the OS having a problem it sounds like the controller was going out.Unless the HDD you were connecting to it was bad.

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

System can detect Fujitsu MHY2160BH : 160GB HDD, but cant install


it seems that your computer might have a SATA hard drive which could not be detectable by windows xp, try to install vista it will detect it easily.

otherwise use dm (disk manager) for detection and partition.

I cant install vista OS on this MBD , by sata HDD


You must enter setup at boot and select the CD/DVD as first boot. Then ensure that the BIOS settings have SATA enabled. When CD/DVD is first boot watch the screen for 'press any key to boot from cd' message is displayed. The boot screen will say how to enter setup. Typical buttons are F2, Delete, F1, F10 -you did not say which manufacturer. OEM trumps mobo maker with BIOS setup.

Os not found


Operating system not found indicates that the system is not seeing a bootable device. Possible causes are:

1. Hard drive not detected due to loose connection. Reseat the HDD.
2. Hard Drive is failing/Failed. Replace HDD
3. System has a floppy drive and a diskette in the drive, remove diskette, reboot
4. Hard drive not in boot sequence. Reset BIOS to defaults
