This may not work, been a long time since I dealt with ME, but I do know that both ME and XP originally had Partition limit sizes below 130 GB. I think XP original partition limit was around 96 GB and I'm almost certain that ME's would have been less then XPs.
So my recommendation to start out with would be to partition your hard drive into 40 GB partitions before attempting the install of ME and make sure your partitions are formatted into FAT32 partitions as FAT32 was the scheme that ME was developed for and most used on.
Don't be afraid to partition to 20 GBs if the 40GB doesn't work. Partitioning serves a lot of useful purposes and should be used much more then it is as this one trick alone as done more to save data on a computer then probably any other trick around. Luckily for everyone virii/trojans/malware, tend to attack the C: partition where the active OS installation lies. Well over 90% of the time any data located on partitions other then the C: partition is recoverable even after a major crash caused by conflicting softwares or malevalent softwares.

    You know because of the size of your hard drive, the amount of time required for partitioning the entire drive would be extreme. So I suggest for the time being at least not to involve yourself with partitions other then the C: partition. Simply format a small ( your decision ) C: partition, leaving the rest of the hard drive un-partitioned just to see if this is the culprit in your problem. It was hard for me to read your original problem so I am making pretty much guesses here.
    Can you do me a favor and re-write your initial problem with your hard drive, maybe I can glean more from that then I have at the moment.

Hello my dear i want install 1 hard disk 320 gb and after that install win xp on my qosmio but after start setup win xp show mw did not find hard drive. how can i repair this problem? thanks


In order to be detected the hard disk drive by your windows xp installer. You have to set your sata in your cmos or bios setup. When powering your computer tap the F2 key or Del to enter cmos or bios setup, go to integrated peripherals and look for the sata controllers. Most of the times if its configured as a enhanced the windows xp can not detect it. You have to change the settings to compatible mode. Please the modify key either F5 or F6 or PGUP/PGDOWN or + or - . After changing the settings press F10 and press y and enter. Then try again running the windows setup. Have a nice day.

Certainly, any files that you write using Windows XP will be able to be read with Windows 7.

Hi, the problem lays with your side stand switch. This is designed to stop us riding off with the stand down. When the switch plays up the safety still works with the stand up. Try giving it a good clean and spray with WD40. It gets covered in crud from the chain lube.

Restoring Partition


If you did the install by formatting C drive, it was a clean install and all other data from Win 98 will be gone. Also XP uses NTFS rather than only FAT. It becomes a real mess when you try to install XP over 98 without starting on a clean slate.
