Hello

1. On POST (Powerup). enter BIOS by pressing F2
2. Tab along to the second option "Main"
3. Goto last option "SATA mode" & press enter.
4. From the small selection display select "IDE mode"
5. Save & exit the BIOS. This will then set the SATA mode for XP to be recognise.

Now try install XP.....DO NOT set this back to SATA Mode after you install the XP as it will NOT boot.

Run the FULL SCAN and press the fix errors button.

About hard disk


I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.

1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well.
   Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad.
   Continue to part 2.

2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
  • At the Setup Notification screen, press Enter to continue.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, hit Enter to continue.
  • Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement and press F8 to agree.
  • On the Xp Setup screen, you'll create an installation partition, but first some housekeeping. If you have any existing partitions you must delete all of them before proceeding.  After deleting all partitions, select "Unpartitioned space" and pressing Enter. And then press Enter again to confirm the partition size as is (it should already be set to the maximum size).
  • Next, select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system" and press Enter. Xp will now install.
If the same error appears then the hard drive is probably bad.
