Intel D955Xcs wont boot sata hdd after bios upgrade

I upgraded my bios from the first release to the current and now windows XP pro SP2 with all updates starts its boot and after the start screen where it has windows XP and the moving bar below it disapears, the ssytem just reboots! It should also be noted that that new matrix storage technoligy driver was also installed right before the bios was updated in the windows environment without a reboot (ooops!) and it may also be part or all of the problem? I tried running setup for xp and it wants to format the NTFS partition saying it does not contain a valid windows format or ntfs format. I have 200+gigs of info on this drive witch is a 500gig sata 300 Samsung Drive. Any suggestions would be most helpful.

Hoe to install a diferent windows on a DELL


If HDD makes shshshsh.... or spinning sound or generates heat, your HDD might be ok. Next Try with XP sp2 cd. If it again cant detect HDD, go to BIOS setting and watch if the HDD is showing it's status. If Bios can not detect HDD check HDD cable and power cable inserted in HDD. Replace them if needed. Format the HDD with another PC. If you still have problem replace HDD with new one. One thing you might use your corrupted HDD as a slave drive later, i hope.

Keep informing.

Same problem in HP dv6040ca


Firstly, the system configuration is normally in management menu or similair on your programmes menu. If not you will find that the bios menu in most laptops are basic and normally the main settings are hidden; you will need to speak to HP Technical for assistance in that. There is no reason to not be able to upgrade to XP Pro; but with an upgrade you would need to keep your original XP Home installation, otherwise you will need to completely install XP Pro firsly using the format option when you insert the Windows disc. As with most laptops all programmes and drivers are usually on a seperate partition on your hardrive, so be aware you are going to lose all this when formatting, so back up all files and settings. You may also have restore discs, if this being the case all programmes and operating system will be on them, so no need to worry about losing anything from your hardrive apart from your documents. Why do you need to dissable SATA?
