SCSI Drivers are only an optional part.
This is not a problem with your driver floppies.

The problem is with the linux being preinstalled on the HD.

Linux uses many types of file-systems. Even if it was NTFS or FAT, it is most probable that windows xp cd won't be able to recognize it; because, it may use unsupported method of formatting.

What you have to do is;
1. Format the two HDs by either

  • Moving it to another windows or linux computer and fully formatting the Hard Disks using fat32 or NTFS (supported by windows). If it is a windows PC using for formatting, no problems. If it is a linux system, delete all partitions, and format the drive in FAT32 or NTFS and here, ONLY CREATE ONE FULL PARTITION COVERING ENTIRE SIZE OF DISK.
  • By a linux installation CD and here too, format the drive in FAT32 or NTFS and here, ONLY CREATE ONE FULL PARTITION COVERING ENTIRE SIZE OF DISK.
2. Install the windows xp in it, using the same booting from CD Porcess. Here, you may or may not choose to install the SCSI drivers ( the floppy you got by pressing F2 when it says to do so in the installation immediately). It is good not to install the SCSI drivers if it is not a necessity for you.

Now, you can create any number of partition, format, etc during win XP installation.

Not getting full resolution of 1920 x 1080 on acer monitor p226hq - installed on HCL desktop - pentium 4 processor - 256 x 512 RAM suggestions


The 64MB graphics card installed was created at a time where that resolution was only dreamed of. The graphics card is not able to support the modern resoultion of 1920X1080.

One option is to install a newer graphics card or install the latest software called drivers, they may help you achieve HD resolution. Drivers can be found on the manufactures website. Download them and install them on your computer.

Take care!

Please read the System Requirements Carefully.
60-day trial does not include technical support and requires the following:
  • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed.
  • Windows Vista® with 1 GB RAM, Windows® XP with 256 MB RAM, Windows Server® 2008 with 512 MB RAM or Windows Server 2003 with 256 MB RAM -> (64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server excluded); service packs for operating systems recommended.
  • Certain features require Internet Explorer®. If not present, Internet Explorer will be installed but will not displace your primary browser.
  • Available hard-disk space: 1.8 GB (some users may require up to an extra 300 MB).
  • For installation of software: DVD drive or high speed Internet access.
  • Super VGA (1024 x 768) or higher resolution monitor.

Thats the System Requirements for the Trial Version. I am not sure whether you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7. You cannot install this on WINDOWS XP/Windows Server 2003 which have 64BIT Architecture.
Same applies for the 2009 Version as well.
You can update it to work with Windows 7 from here. You can update it to work with Windows Vista from here. Search by the Name under Software category.

My external hard drive is unreadable


Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.
