Mine hitachi hard disk is 80GB SATA i cant able to install OS because it is showing error some virus found and u r not able to formate this. first when i put OS CD in drive it will install some files and...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

I need to format an HDD for an IBM thinkpad 570e that came without one, and from what a lot of people say, it won't take windows xp pro. I don't have any other OS, so has anyone tried to do this...


Before formatting the drive ....
you will need to save your drivers on a cd/dvd disk if you dont have the original disks

Formatting the drive should be straight forward,
remove it from your machine and take it to another computer,
your IBM Thinkpad should be staight forward to reinstall even without taking your drive to another computer,I found this step easier tho....
after formatting this drive you could just insert to your machine and then reload your software from the beginning providing you have your disks,

You might have a password locked hard drive and or your bios may be locked also ,in this case replace the drive after which your new os install should give you access and functionality,
update your drivers on the internet and SP2 updates will give you hi speed usb 2.0 functionalilty.....

Good luck with the formatting,if you need help let me know,
have a great day

Verbatim portable hard drive not recognized by XP - works in 2000


Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.

you need to initialize the newly added drive in disk management, then format the drive once disk management assigns a drive letter.

CONTROL PANEL, ADMIINSTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, DISK MANAGEMENT

There you should be able to see the 2nd drive, Right click and INITALISE it, once it is initialized, it will be assigned a drive letter and you can format the drive

Hanging on detection of drive when installing Windows XP


Installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not a straight-forward task as Windows XP does not recognize the SATA drive. In order to install operating systems such as Windows XP on SATA drives, the latest SATA drivers are required.Download SATA drivers for the motherboard from the website and integrate them with the XP installation CD using software such as nLite. SATA drivers can also be installed as third party drivers; you will be prompted during the installation process. Without proper SATA drivers, installing Windows XP on a SATA hard drive is not possible as SATA mode would have to be disabled in the BIOS to continue with the installation.
Installing Windows XP on a Serial ATA hard drive is not an easy task, because the system does not recognize SATA drivers at startup. Windows XP Pro SP2 fares a little better with SATA drivers, but here is what can be done in cases where the driver is not recognized.

Can't get NEC Litepad to recognize new Toshiba 1.8" MK2004GAL


I've read on other web forums that the recover disk only works with the original drive partiions. There's a hidden partition on the original drive that the recover disk uses to install the OS (maybe other software too). You'll need to clone/copy the original disk partitions to the new hard drives and then you'll be able to use the recovery disk.

You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.

Right-click My Computer, choose Manage, then click on Disk Management. If you are prompted about Initialize and Convert, you don't need to Convert, but you DO need to Initialize the disk.

Once the disk is initialized the OS can use it, but you will still need to create a partition and format it. Find the next disk in the list on the bottom right and right-click the box (it'll say Disk 1 or something like that) and choose New Partition or New Volume to create a new partition or volume -- partitions are for Basic disks, volumes are for Dynamic disks - usually I use Basic disk.

Hit F1 while in Disk Management for more help.
