    Have you booted the computer from the windows XP CD? Have you looked in the BIOS to see if the hard drive is correctly identified?

This is what you do, on the cmos setup, device configuration, you will see sata HDD ..., disable it and try and reload the OS again

NOT booting WINDOW XP


Hey stanley154

try to boot your machine using window 98 startup disk or window 98 bootable CD. then type fdisk on DOS prompt. Then try to delete non dos partation and the create primary dos partation. Restart your machine, let it start window or the floppy until it return to dos prompt. Then you can type the format c: e.g a:\format c: or D:\format c:. After that try to run window xp.


all the best

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem


this is more like a workaround that I used on a laptop which cd room drive just failed (and which I did not want to replaced as it was more expensive than the whole laptop)

If you can't select the device you want to boot from.. you may want to partition your hdd and format it so it loads a dos operating sytem .. use another machine and a win98 startup disk to do this then copy your I386 folder from your winxp cd into the new formatted hdd so when you put the hdd back into the IBM machine it loads dos and then going into the I386 folder you can run a winnt command for you to install the os.

Unable to install XP sp2 on Intel D865GBF Motherboard


Maybe having trouble with a device, remove any pci or agp cards and usb devices, use built-in video until installed.

Set bios to defaults, make sure bios is latest version.

I have found this happens with a promise ultra-100tx2 and any nvidia video card.

May be a bad install cd, if you can boot it with a dos or win98 disk/CD, copy xp i386 folder to hard drive install from i386 folder on hdd by running winnt.exe

I have installed xpsp2 on about 10 d865gbf's and 2 days ago installed xp sp3 on one with no problems. may also be bad mobo.

98 loading error message


When you format something you WILL lose all of the data that was there. I would also recomend upgradeing to XP, 2000, or NT. You may need to reinstall the OS. If you need instructions ask me and I can help.
