Has it ever recognised it?
if yes, you may just need to go to the manufacturers website and download the sata drivers.

if no, you may have a dead hdd. try entering the bios and check if it shows up there. if it does: goto "if yes"

Just replaced HDD in Satellite L305 w/ above HDD. I will be installing Windows XP SP3 on the Toshiba HDD that I just installed, will I need to download the ACHI XP F6 Install tool for this HDD?


ACHi drivers/firmware updates are loaded after xp generic driver installation, you only need to have the drivers handy on a floppy during the xp installation for a raid driver array

My Dell Precision Workstation wont reconize any boot device how do I fix this


This sounds like root kit virus.you need to either remove drive and piggyback to another computer and run a full virus check macafee or kapersky have root kit checkers.or leave it in place and get hold of a Hirens boot disc .this is free multi programmed fix disc and downloadable , just google this.you can then burn it to disc or USB.go to bios to select drive order and then the disc will install a small xp windows version on the ram so the hard drive doesn't need to be involved .test disc is a good program to try when hdd remain unseen , one of the many tools on hirens.this will correct the mft of the hdd which can also prevent it being recognised by windows.

Is it possible to take my IDE harddrive from my old dell dimension 8100 running 'XP' and install it as a second harddrive in my dell studio 8100 studio xps with W7, then boot "XP" from harddrive...


If your motherboard in your new machine supports IDE and you set the jumper on the HDD to slave then I dont see any reason why you wouldnt be able to use it as a second drive

or
just connect hdd , boot to xp , put windows 7 dvd , instal it on new hdd while u r in xp
if ur new hdd is not detecting just clear c-mos settings

Is it a bad mb ?


If the HDD is not recognized in the BIOS, windows will not be able to install on that drive. Did you move the HDD interposer from the old drive to the new one? (t is a small adapter that plugs on to the pins of the drive.) If you did, reinstall the interposer on the old drive, ensure it still works. If neither drive functions, then you may have a bad motherboard.

0x0000007B normally occurs when you try to install an older version of WIndows XP on a system with a newer HDD controller and the XP CD doesn't have the correct driver for the HDD controller. So if you get an error like this after getting the HDD to be recognized by the bios, then you may need the HDD controller driver too.

Network Boot Windows XP?


Put the HDD in any other computer , creat a folder called XPbackup and copy the XP cd to the folder, Start the XP install from the other computer  , when the install stops for CD key , turn of the computer and remove the HDD and put the HDD on the laptop and turn it on , Mostly the installation should start from where it stoped. If the Xp install askes for the source files , browse to the folder created and point to the files. Most of the time XP will install a generic HAL so no need to worry.

Do i need to change my harddisk?


Hello,

It sounds like UBUNTU formated your hard drive where xp does not reconized the drive. When you go into BIOS setting, do you see your hard listed? If so, you should be able to put a clean install of XP to the drive. When you start the install, you must select REFORMAT drive and install XP. If this still fails, you may need to fdisk your drive first using DOS command and reinstall XP. Let us know if you incounter any more problems after doing this. Good Luck.
