Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook
Hd dead, tried both usb flash drive and a usb ext hd
both installed winxt, win 98 win95 on all 6 tried when I try booting got the same error - "window what problem and lose window" the c:/
OK so why is it not running?
You need to reinstall the operation system ..and do it from a bootable disk ,,,if during the install it is saying that a hdd was not find in the system ..this is a issue of teh bios setting s incase of a sata hdd..go to bios and default it to factory optimal defaults ..save changes with F10..than go back and see into the devices..or advanced..where the Hdd and cd /dvd (in main or advanced ) drive is listed (on bios) there must be a function named ACHI ..this is now ebnabled as default ..but to run will need a raid driver ..so ..disable it ..Im not sure probably will list auto ..try both ways ..it is related with the bus of the hdd..and needs to be disabled (the ACHI) in order to be seen directly ..as a Sata -ide Bus..
after that ..save with F10 again and install ...it will do now ..with any OK you need I will go for XP..
