    Hello,

    Have you chosen the Repair option when the installer states there is already Windows on this computer?

    Regards,

Hi i have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 i have reformatted the hard drive and am trying to instal windows xp Professional Genuine CD. I can access bios utility no problem and i start install for winxp it...


This because you dont have AHCI drivers required for Win XP and you set in BIOS either sata controller or ide controller to an AHCI. You must set to native IDE or anything else like that.
If you wish set an AHCI driver you must press F6 during starting windows XP setup. And put the drivers (get it here) to floppy disk, it will prompted to install required drivers..
Another way to install driver without floppy disk you must inject the driver to windows XP installation CD...

P.S : you cant put the drivers onto floppy, because it wont be read by Windows XP setup..

How-to repair Windows XP, How to Perform an In-Place Upgrade


One of the best kept secrets of Windows XP is it's built in repair feature!

In previous versions of Windows, correcting an operating system error, or installing a new motherboard, usually meant formating and reinstalling, resulting in loss of all data. Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system!

Why would I want to reinstall Windows XP?
1) Can't start Windows XP in safe mode.
2) You have problems caused by a recently installed system update (Windows Update, hotfix, Windows XP service pack, or Microsoft Internet Explorer update).
3) Your problems can't be solved with system restore, or you can't access system restore.
4) You've installed a new motherboard, or made other major hardware changes and need to reinstall Windows.


Let's get started!

Step 1: Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).

Step 2: Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these instructions your data will be perfectly safe.

Step 3: Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD. Can't boot from your CD? Please see the note at the bottom of this page (Configuring Your Computer to Boot from CD).

Step 4: A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.

Note: RAID/SCSI/Unsupported UDMA users:
You will be prompted to "press F6 to install any third party SCSI or RAID drivers". Most users will not have to press F6, but if you are running RAID, SCSI or unsupported UDMA controllers, then you will have to have your controller drivers on a floppy disk. If you are unsure whether you have RAID/SCSI, then simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system!

Note: The system repair function will remove any updates you have previously installed that are not included on the CD. Drivers will also be reverted to their original XP versions, as well as some settings (network & performance settings may sometimes be reset to their defaults). It may be necessary to reactivate your Windows XP as well. When finished, you will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update, because they are all replaced during repair.

Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.

Note: If you install a fresh copy, all data on that partition will be lost!

6b4d6fc.gif

Your almost finished! Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts, and have your CD-KEY ready if needed.

Do you have more than one system, or lost your CD-KEY? Visit the keyfinder page to retrieve your CD-KEY.

Update: Due to the proliferation of the Blaster and Welchia Worm/Virus be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable. You can get infected within seconds. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first.

Remember to run Windows Update! (install critical updates first)

Configuring Your Computer to Boot from CD

Many computers are not configured to boot from the CDROM. If you cannot boot from the CDROM, this is probably due to the boot order of your devices being incorrect. You can change this in the BIOS.

You enter the BIOS from the first screen you see when you turn your computer on. To enter your BIOS, most users here will press the DEL key.

Most Dell, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony & HP systems will press F2.

Compaq users will usually have to press F10.

IBM typically uses F1 or F2.

Other brands may have different keys to press to enter setup, F1, F2, Del, Tab and CTRL+S. If possible see the manual for your computer or motherboard. Also, the BIOS will usually display which button to press to "enter setup" during POST (if it flashes by too fast, press the Pause key).

When you enter the BIOS setup, you need to change the boot order. The CDROM should be setup before the Hard Drive. Each BIOS is different, but here is an example:

Not recognizing hard disc drive for windows xp reinstall .


You aren't using the correct install disk . The generic XP install disk can't recognize a SATA disk.You will have to load the appropriate driver during install. Here it is ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp32001-32500/sp32492.exe
Or you could create a custom install disk  as explained here

I want to install XP Pro on a sata drive


You need to post what Brand/Model of motherboard you are using, or search for yourself on the manufacturers website for the SATA drivers. Then you need to load the SATA drivers onto a floppy disk so that you may press F6 during the beginning of Windows Setup to load the SATA drivers, as Windows XP Setup does not come with SATA drivers.

Sata hd, installing windows


Hi nveronika,
First things first. Find the name of you're SATA hard disk drive.
Please go to the manufacture's web site & download the floppy drive setup/utilities bootable software or creat a bootable CD from the manufactures site. Boot the system with their software & setup you're hard disk drive which will run in a DOS like window. (This should resovle the blue screen issue).
There are two different revision for the motherboard GA-M52l-S3
(Revisions, 2.0 uses the NVIDIA® GeForce 6100 / nForce 430 chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2818
& (Revision 1.0 which uses the NVIDIA® nForce 520LE Chipset): http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2634
Which is you're motherboard? Once you find the correct motherboard you can download the the needed software directly from the web site & create the correct floppy disk needed when pressing the F6 key during windows installation. If you still get an error message try another fresh floppy disk. (Corruption of files to a floppy usually mean the floppy drive is dirty or bad or the floppy disk is bad). It is also possible that the data cable to the floppy drive is loose or defective. Downloading directly from Gigabyte is suggested over using the CD.

Good luck nveronika!

Problem with new install xp


First of all, was there a reason that you wanted to reinstall windows? If you were having problems with the operating system and now upon reload the hard disk is not appearing it could mean that the disk or the system board itself is bad.

If you pull the XP disk out and just try to boot your computer up are you able to login and use your computer from the previous/original install of XP?

If so, then perhaps you're using a special hard drive controller that supports RAID. If you have a RAID controller you'll need to load the drivers of that controller on a Floppy disk. During the initial startup of the XP install it will give you the opportunity to click the F6 button on the keyboard to load additional device drivers. You want to click F6 when it prompts you at the bottom of the screen and wait for it to prompt you to put your floppy disk (with the RAID controller drivers) in the floppy drive.

Hope this helps. If you need more help just let me know.

Mayeb you need to repair the OS - In which case you will need to have SCSI Controller XP OS floppy driver obtained from IBM website.

Start up the computer booting up from the CD ROM. Then when it comes to "install thrid party devices" - press 'S' and insert the floppy with the SCSI Coontroller on it and follow the on screen instructions.
