XP cannot be installed natively on an SATA disk without the appropriate driver which must be loaded during the install - an extremely complicated maneuver. The best way to deal with that is to just add the new SATA hard disk: install XP on the PATA and use the new SATA for your files as a separate partition. The adapter cable can be bought for about $5 from the same shop as the hdd.
All the other modifications are just fine - just remember , the RAM will not be fully recognized and used because of the limitations of the 32bit XP.

WHAT CAN USE TO REPLACE A MAXTOR 7Y250MO HARD DRIVE? IT IS IN A 6 1/2 YEAR OLD DELL DEMENSION XPS GEN 2 TOWER RUNNING WIN XP. THE OS CAN NO LONGER FIND THE DRIVE AND WILL NOT BOOT UP. I WOULD LIKE TO...


Hi,
The Dell Dimension XPS GEN2 has support for both, IDE and SATA standards. Your Maxtor is SATA drive, you can use any SATA drive as replacement. You mentioned that the OS no longer find the drive, make sure that you load SATA drivers at your Windows XP reinstallation, maybe your old drive is not defective only not recognized in the installation process. You can download the floppy image with required drivers here, see SATA drivers section. When you start Windows installation, at the Windows Setup Screen you should see, at the bottom of the screen, a message saying "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver." At that point press the F6 button and when the next screen appears press S key to specify an additional device. Select the drivers from the provided list(to load all drivers from the disk, beacuse I don't know which is yours as I don't know the content of the disk, repeat steps to specify additional device), after drivers load your hard drive should be recognized and you can continue installing the Windows XP operating system. Ignore these steps if your hard was already tested and confirmed that is defective. Good luck!
If this is the solution for your problem, please rate my post, otherwise give us more details.

Regards,
Andras

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

How to reformat my nc6000 using my os cd?


The NC6000 sometimes has trouble booting to anything other than the primary hard drive once a valid OS has been installed. If you need to reinstall by booting it USB or to a CD/DVD; this works for me as a last resort. (Especially USB which it officially isn't supposed to be able to do.)

Insert the bootable media. Shut the laptop down. Remove the hard drive - but leave it disconnected in the bay. Start the machine, let it detect the bootable device, then hot-plug the hard drive. There is some timing involved, but it works.

I loaded several NC6000 machines running Windows 2000 to Linux and XP this way.
