Question about Samsung SpinPoint SP8004H 80 GB Hard Drive
Attempting to replace a hardd rive and install Windows XP. Old hard drive wasvSamsung SP8004h hard drive. New one doesn't have to be equal in brand or even storage. 40 GB or higher is fine. Need a new hard drive that connects directly to the motherboard (40 pin connection) not SATA that connects through a RAID PCI slot interface. What brand and model would have the same interface and connector as the Samsung SP8004h (40 pin connection)
SATA drives are the latest hard drives available nowadays. You could try going online and checking other sites that could still have an IDE hard available for sale.

According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.
