Question about Computers & Internet
I am puting winxp pro they ask pls cheked hdd is available press f3
If your computer is running a sata HDD, then you may need to install the drivers for the sata controller at the beginning of setup so that your HDD can be found.
F3 is the key used to quit setup, so XP has not found any hard drives.
The other thing to check is in the bios when the computer first boots to see if the hard drive is even being detected by the computer.
If not, then check it has the power and data cables attached.
If the drives are IDE and you have 2 on the same cable,then make sure to set them to master and slave, or both to cable select so they can be found correctly.
Hope that helps =)
