You need to install Windows. You'll have to buy a Windows XP Home (preferably) installation CD with Certificate of Authenticity and 25-digit registration key. You'll put the CD in the drive and boot the machine, it should boot off the CD and start the Windows XP installation process. Once that is done, your computer should run perfectly.

did you configured the Hard drive jumpers correctly?
Was the original HD set to master or Cable select?
if so please set your new hard drive to the same jumper settings as the old one.

Windows XP won't boot with "CREATIVE SOLUTIONS" PC


That machine is too underpowared to run xp pro.
Windows XP Media Center Edition
1.6 GHz CPU, 256MB Ram, and DirectX 9 hardware-accelerated GPU
you may get it to run but it is going to be dead slow. you will be waiting forever to load any apps with a processor under a gig, and less than 512 mhz of memory, it may work for emulation, but that's even questionable. I don't want to aggrvate you but that config is a decade old. Vista for instance needs at least 2 gigs of ram and a dualcore to run right. sorry bud, if you are dead set on it, the only thing you coula do is juice up the memory, to whatever the board is rated to take, or I would run windows 98, peace

Service pack3 crashed puter - after reinstall machine thinks extra hard drive is a disk drive.


You can get to the BIOS by hitting DEL or F2 at start up.

However, that does not have anything to do with a drive letter.

Drive letter designation is set in
START>SETTINGS>CONTROL PANEL>ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS>COMPUTER MANAGEMENT>DISK MANAGEMENT.

Hope this helps.

Will This Hard Drive Work In My Dell 8200?


Yes it will work. You probably will have to use the CD that came with the drive to make sure the HD is recognized.

IBM NETVISTA P4 2.4G. no O.S.


If your old copy of win xp is not being used by any other computer then reformat the entire drive with xp. Also make sure that your drive is not divided into 2 or 3 sections. All updated will be available on the windows update site. The reason that I prefer tostart from scratch is Everything is new with no lingering Junk programs in the background.
