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.

You may have to Reformat your hard drive first. The current hard rive may have a bad operating system on it or one that is newer than XP. In some cases, when a computer has a more current operating system installed, it will not allow an older operating system to write over it. That is why I said, reformat the hard drive. Remember, hardware drivers are written for Windows 10 now, so old drivers may not be functional any longer.

The easiest route would be to install the new hard drive in place of the old hard drive and place the old hard drive below the new hard drive and make it a secondary hard drive or slave drive. Once you have them installed this way you can install Windows XP Home to the new hard drive once you have it installed to the hard drive then you can copy everything from your old hard drive to the new one. Once you have everything copied from the old hard drive you can then format it within Windows to have 33GBs of space to store anything you wish. If you need more detailed instructions don't hesitate to reply.

If the image on your hard drive doesn't have all the right drivers for your system, it won't work, and you will get BSOD. can you boot into safe mode? If so, you may be able to uninstall a driver or usually the last driver/file that successfully installed, not the one that doesn't finish loading, so see what the file "before" agpcpq.sys is. If you have a windows XP cd, you can try to get into the recovery console and then the command prompt, and typing "fixboot" ...or you can run the system file checker "sfc /scannow" ...but without more information, you may end up wiping it. Do you know what drivers are on the hardd rive?
