Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I am changing the OS from MS Windows 2000 to MS XP and while booting from CD and installing MS XP pro, the computer errors out, saying it cannot find a hard drive. I know there is a 75 gig hard drive that was just running MS windows 2000 5 minutes ago.!! what gives?
It used to happen like this during the new installation.
goto BIOS setup and check that the HDD is correctely detected. check the size it reported. If its correct, give one more try. else the HDD firmware is corrupted and can be repaired.

Note: The Microsoft Windows XP CD is a bootable CD and in many cases you should not need a bootable floppy diskette. Booting from the Windows XP CD will allow you to not only install/re-install Windows XP but will also allow you to troubleshoot it.
Create MS-DOS bootable diskette
When formatting a floppy diskette, users have the option of creating a MS-DOS startup disk, follow the below steps to do this.
