If you have 2 hard drive on your computer check the primary and secondary slave, there is a switch at the back of the hard drive, close to the connectors. check both hard drives. there should only be one. and when installing win xp. check your bios setting. 1st boot should be cdrom.

Installed 2T Hitachi drive with controller as secondary drive. Devices show both working correctly. But XP doesn't recognize it. How do I get XP to recognize it?


This problem can easily be fixed. It is caused by your HDD not being formatted. Go to Start> Right click on "my computer" and select manage from the box that pops up. In the window that pops up then, click on Storage > Disk management on the left hand side. Then right click on the drive you installed, and click format. You should probably format as NTFS.

When i connect my drive to my pc using windows xp in show Found new hardware searches for drivers and completes the search. but when i go to my computer it does not show up


Windows XP can only see up to 120GB. If you can partition the drive in 4 X120GB and 20GB XP will see five drives. If you need to use the full 500GB, you will need to upgrade to XP with SP3 or Windows 7

My hitachi hard drive dosent show up in my computer


The reason it's not showing up in XP is because microsoft made updates to drive handling in Windows 7.

The disk is in essence too "advanced for XP"

Your best solution is to copy the data off the drive onto the windows 7 machine, then format the drive using windows XP. Once formatted, copy your files back onto the drive from the windows 7 computer and both will be able to share the drive.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I need to change from a FAT to a NTFS to operate on my windows XP


I'm assuming that you are trying to convert an existing hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS...
Is that the question?

If so, boot computer.

click on Start...Run... type in "cmd" and press <enter>

A command prompt will appear (aka "console" or "DOS box")

at the C:\blah\blah prompt, type in

"convert C: /FS:NTFS" and press enter. (substitute the drive letter of the drive to convert for "C:" in the preceeding example)

If you are prompted that the drive is locked and do you wish to mark the drive for conversion at next boot time, answer YES.

Reboot.

Voila!

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.

Installing windows


1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...

Samsung sata hard disk detection problem while windows setup


Hi, Typically, Windows XP installer does not provide full support for SATA HDs (drives) nor for all kinds of SATA Controllers (on the motherboard or add-on card). However, Windows XP installer provided a way out by prompting the user to press F6 and load the necessary drivers in the FDD. The diskette containing the drivers may either come from: manufacturer of motherboard; manufacturer of controller; or manufacturer of HD. If none was provided nor available, then perhaps you can DIY (do-it-yourself). More often than not, it is inside the MB installer/driver CD in D:\Drivers\SATA or something like that and copy to a floppy diskette. Alternately, you can download from the manufacturer's website, decompress and copy to FD. When the Windows XP installation CD puts out the message "Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver", press "F6" as instructed. Thereafter, press "S" to specify additional device on the next pop up screen. Insert the driver floppy disk in and press enter to continue. If the floppy disk is made successfully, the installation program will ask for selecting driver. Please then select "Motherboard chipset (VIA, Intel etc Serial ATA RAID Controller(Windows XP)".) After the SATA driver loaded, Windows XP will now recognize the SATA HDD, proceed and continue to install Windows XP. If you do not have a FDD, one of your option is to DIY a slipstream WinXP installer CD. This is better explained in this article . Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need fur4ther information. Good luck and kind regards.
