Kiran,
i thought you have SATA interface, in that case your XP will not be able to access your HDD. But now as you told there is no option for SATA means you don't have SATA interface in your motherboard and the problem might be in your HDD.

  1. So, check out your HDD connection from motherboard and try to install again if no luck then do the following step.
  2. If you have important data/files on your HDD make a backup copy. Then make try to delete all partition and make new partition, then proceed further installation OR if you have recovery disk try to use it to recover your system as factory setting.

Thanks
Iqbal

You cannot see HD because there are no apropriate SATA drivers included in windows XP CD. So you need to create custom windows XP installation CD

To install windows XP in that laptop u will need to create custom windows XP CD, how will you do that:

  1. Download nlite from http://www.nliteos.com/
  2. Download drivers for that laptop
  3. Download service pack 3 for windows XP
  4. Install nlite for windows XP and run
  5. Follow instructions and include SP3 for XP, all the drivers for laptop and create ISO Image
  6. Burn ISO Image
  7. Install Windows XP
  8. Good Luck

Hye..my acer aspire laptop very bad causes of virus infection and mess with all my files and folders. so, it think reformat is the best solution for me. But unlucky, when i restarted my Laptop and install...


Hello !
You have said that you have done installation and Harddisk are not recognised this is a indication of damaged Harddisk ie its registry is bad or its not working .
I recomend a new Harddisk then you will able to use your laptop
Before you change the harddisk you should check the IDE cables by swapping them coz sometimes they could be faulty, connect new cable to the harddisk then on it try installation again .

Good luck

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.
