You need to go to your BIOS and check if your BIOS recognizes your drive. You might need to upgrade your BIOS with the latest firmware. You've been using 6GB drive, so I suspect you have older system and your new drive with higher capacity might not work on your system. Another possibility is you need to run HD installation utility that usually comes with the drive.

Upon booting, i get dos prompt, doesn't do anything further


No compatibility problem in your case. XP should work well with Dell optiplex gx280. Try re-installing the OS, there is problem with the OS version you had used to install.Rate me if it is useful!!

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

Well, first thank u for ur answer its seems that this true. but i have a windows 7 operating system now beside my XP ,and in the windows 7 its says that the total memory size is 6 GB and a 3.25 is useable!...


Your motherboard might be restricting it because of Windows XP OS on the other Partition/ Hard Drive. This has happend to me before...
---
Unless it is because you are using the 32-Bit Beta...
I suggest using the 64 Bit if there is one, and also 3.25 GB is a lot Windows 7 would run fine on that if it ran okay on my 1.25 GB.
Also thanks for having XP LOL.
Good luck.

I cant install windows xp because of... i dont know!


Here is what you should do, go to a computer store and buy a 40G HD. Try installing on that. It could be the size, but most likly not. Im going to guess and say take a look at the bottom of your reinstall disk. If it has any scratches, there is your problem. NTLDR is your boot sector on you HD.

New XPPro Install... Can't see HD


Try to download a widows XP based driver for your Promise Controller from the manufacturer's website and install it. This is really necessary. If it does not solve the problem, you reinstall windows XP. When XP begins installtion it flashes a message like this: "Press F2 to install a third party driver......" Press F2 and insert the Promise controller driver in a floppy. This way it will work. (I hope so..) Note: Do not remove floppy untill Windows finishes installation
