Question about Dell Dimension 8100 PC Desktop
When you boot your computer, spam the F2 key to enter the BIOS setup. Select the Drives/Drive Configuration menu, make sure PATA-0 and PATA-1 are enabled. (or whatever is listed for your physical drive ports, the Dimension 8100 doesn't use SATA so those shouldn't be listed). Save settings and restart. XP should now be able to detect the new hard drive.
