    Yes I did format the first drive,
    I just bought it used and has some kind a linux morphius in it.I replaced that dive with a new one but I did not format it.The third drive was 100 gig 7200 RPM ,then I tried again with 80 gig hard drive with 5200 RPM.

    let me refresh my question>I put the window XP on the drive,It say press any key to start fom cd rom then start loading files,after that when it say SET UP IS STARTING WINDOWS It will Pause and thats it.
    Seems to me its not detecting the C drive,but when I format it in Dos its there and format 100 percent.

    The drive has been formatted,therefor nothing in it.yes driver being downloaded,like I have been said it would stop after all the driver has been will not finish the process of installing the windows,in fact it would stop where it it say on the bottom ,Set up is starting the windows.
    Yes windows cd are good just got them from microsoft,never been register.I have 4 windows xp pro and 1 xp home and 1 vista home.I'd tried every one of them .
    No,it will not boot on safe mode since there are no operating system in it.
    I already said the hard Drives are also Brand New.and I format it with recovery cd.
    Now this is sound weird because I put a hard Drive with windows XP on it (from different Laptop)(sharp)It recognize the windows because it ask me how I want it open.I tried to open in safe mode but it will not open.Do you think you can help me on this?

    When you formatted was it a quick format and did you use fat32 or ntsf?Aslong as you have enough free space win xp should install the drivers.Also did you make a new partition?

    Does it tell you that you already have an operating system installed?If so it should prompt you if you want to use the exsisting partition or create a new one.Also are the jumpers on the hardrive correct.Ive seen this issue plenty of times and its usually means a partition has to be made.Is the win xp copy good?no scratches on the disk.Also when it says press any key do you see on the bottom left of the screen drivers being loaded?can you ge in to safe mode,ifso try to start in safe mode and start with minimum drivers

Toshiba satelite p200-ab1 formatted drive which previously had windows vista and now want to load windows xp but will not recognize a drive to load to. if I try nto reload vista it will take but why not...

Before you attempt it, make a couple of changes in the BIOS to hopefully work around a few problems that might crop up.
At reboot, tap the F2 key to enter setup that will allow you to make a change in the BIOS.
Disable caching module before you change the drive sata settings.
Set the hard drive to "ATA compatible."

The stop error code is most likely STOP:0x0000007B because windows XP doesn't have the correct SATA controller driver to install without assistance.


If available, try setting the SATA controller in BIOS to ATA or Legacy Mode.

If not available, then you will need to download the SATA controller Driver and slipstream the driver into the XP version you are trying to install

Cannot load drivers

there isnt such thing as impossibility to load and install drivers..if the system refuses the drivers you try ..this means that they are not the one you need to install ...Even if the drivers came on a disk with the laptop ...if you changed the operation system ..or the the bit of the system need another set of drivers..
To be more clear for example if you installed windows 7 and use to have vista need drivers for windows 7 ...even if some of them for common devices may fit from vista 32 to windows 7 32..Or ...if you downgraded from Vista to windows need drivers for xp ..and the other way around...The only way the drivers you have will fit after re-installation if you have the exact same operating system reinstalled..
So..this will be the site where you should download the drivers for you operating system..
so ...choose the model ...notebook ...aspire/4520..after that choose from the 3 main windows ..xp ..or windows 7 ..and download all of them one by one ..and install ..

Install windows XP

You sure your HD isn't bad? You could try a low-level format and then try to install, I am assuming you don't mind loosing any data already on the disk.

No hardware found when downgrading from vista to xp

first of all you might want to check the laptop manufacturers website to ensure that it can be down graded. after this and if it can be downgraded you might want to download the thrid party sata/scsi drivers from you hard drive manufacturers website so they can be used during set up. if all this fails perhaps using thrid party slip stream software like NLite to copy all the set up files ready for install. hope this helps.
let me know if it doesnt.
