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.

when installing XP to a blank HDD, that has no existing partition, If windows detects other drives (another HDD that has a partition, USB Thumbdrive, zip drive ot media card reader (I suspect your system has a 4 in one card reader) then XP install will see those drives and assign them drive letters and then assign the new partition created C: To avoid this, the simplest step is after creating the new partition on the new hdd in the XP install process, reboot the system and start the XP install again, this time it will see an existing partition on the new HDD and assign it drive letter C:
If you have already installed XP., I have found no SUCCESSFUL way to change the drive letter of the boot drive other than re-installing Windows.

I hate to say this but it sounds like your hard drive has crashed. I would purchase another for about 80 dollars and reinstall windows.

you problem is most likely that your bios is out of date. download the latest bios updates for your motherboard and then when you install windows format you HDD with the ntfs system (using the long formatt system not the quick format). Then you should install the bios update. then your mboard shoud no longer have the problem of recognising your large capacity HDD. thanks

You don't need drivers for a hard drive! Just plug it in and it will be recognised by the BIOS.

The only thing you will need to do is make sure you designate it as a primary or slave drive - whatever the old drive was set to. On the back there is what looks like an eight pin plug, with a jumper across two of the pins. Depending which pins are connected will change the drive designation. There is usually a sticker next to them telling you which to connect for primary and slave.
