SOURCE: Computer will not boot.

Form the info you provided, you have a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) disk array. RAID 0 (striped disks) distributes data across several disks in a way that gives improved speed and full capacity, but all data on all disks will be lost if any one disk fails. Apparently Diagnostics has determined that “Drive 2” is defective. You will have to replace the defective hard drive and reload the Windows operating system.


Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please show your appreciation by rating your experience.
Thank You.

SOURCE: Vista recognizes Samsung HD160JJ as a scsi drive not a sata.

The NVidia Chipset ID's the HDD controller as an iSCSI controller. You may need to install the Media Shield Driver:

But as far as functinality, I believe it is a cosmetic issue.

SOURCE: Blue screen error with stop code 0 X 000000ed.

Unmountable Boot Volumes almost always indicate a failure of the hard drive. You can try running CHKDSK /R from recovery console or a clean installation of Windows. If those fail, replace the hard drive.

DELL 5150 hard drive error 7


Error code 7 means that your hard disk drive failed and is defective. As for reloading windows XP, I wouldn't. It's not supported by Microsoft any more. I would load Win 7 after replaceing the drive.

The hard disk is dead. To recover some of your files from it just boot from a Linux Live-CD like   http:pclinuxos.com/  and copy whatever you can recover to a USB memory stick.

My hitachi hard drive dosent show up in my computer


The reason it's not showing up in XP is because microsoft made updates to drive handling in Windows 7.

The disk is in essence too "advanced for XP"

Your best solution is to copy the data off the drive onto the windows 7 machine, then format the drive using windows XP. Once formatted, copy your files back onto the drive from the windows 7 computer and both will be able to share the drive.

Hope this helps FixYa,

I am reformatting a Dell computer useing a Samsung HD160JJ/P hard drive The OS will not load because there is no driver present for the hard drive. I need to download and reinstall the drivers. Where can I...


When installing XP, you could always go into Bios and switch Sata to Legacy mode. That will allow you to install XP. Later you could try installing the SATA drivers, and switch the Bios back to ACH1 mode (or whatever it was called). I had no luck with the latter, as there is a bit of a 'Catch 22' as Device manager does not proffer that option when the drive is in Legacy mode. I gave up and now just run it in Legacy mode. In spite of what the manual says, you will find that eSata works fine in that mode.

Winxp cannot boot - missing files message


Just make sure you get these files on your computer.
Download hal.dll from here:

http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?hal

Place it in windows\system32 folder.

Now go to the drive you have windows installed in (C:/ for example), and then create a new file, name it boot.ini.

Open boot.ini with notepad, and enter this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS /usepmtimer
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer
Save boot.ini now, and try booting your computer, it should work.
