Hi ajmalnizar_n,

Try to check if your harddisk is detectable in Bios if so,
The problem is in the installation of windows xp. install a new copy
of Xp. Reformat the disk using ntfs then create your partion if you like.

Hope this helps, Feedbacks appreciated
Thx

There maybe a wiring connection problem with your harddisk drive to your motherboard. Check the power cord connection and also the connection to the motherboard. Try reconnecting the cords.

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

sorry for late. the massage say that mbr of ur hard diskt have problem. pls one time again give fixmbr then restart ur machine then give fixboot c: then restart ur machine. after this if a massage say that ntldr missing then copy it c: from i386 folder (windows installation cd). if problem not solve then try to reinstall windows xp by removeing all partition and then creat new partion. if their was any improtent data pls do not try to install windows xp. just remove hdd. from ur laptop then use a external harddisk casing then attached with a pc then recover data by a recoveray software( like pc instector file recovery). then delete all partitition write new mbr by using fixmbr if it fail again, then use Disk manager v10 to write mbr.

(Mbr is a record which contain master boot coad and partition table if this coad not execute properly then system can't access hdd. system halted after DMI pool data result blinking curser at black screen)

u can use microsoft diskprobe to write mbr manualy which u found in windows xp cd supprot/support.cab/diskprobe.exe

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
