Hi THENITMAN,

Please take a look at this page. It says that the largest hard drive you can fit is a 160GB. This is a common problem with older boards. The best way around this is to fit a controller card into one of the PCI slots. This can cause problems when installing windows XP. You can slipstream the the drivers onto a custom bootable windows XP install disk to get round this problem. The computer magazine created this excellent tutorial explaining everything.

I hope this has been helpful.

Please don't forget to rate my solution.

Good luck, Spare head 2

Bootable device has not been dectected


When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

Laptop says no operating system found wot do i do as its a samsung notebook


Hi,

Check if the harddrive is detected in BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) setup by pressing F2..or F12 (depends on what key is designed for the BIOS setup).

- If the harddrive is detected in the BIOS (usually shows the harddrive name or values beside "Drive 0"), your operating system is corrupted. You need an operating system disc to install it.

- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS ( no value beside "Drive 0"), either the harddrive cable is loose, the harddrive is not inserted properly or is defective. Check the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop and use screw driver to reveal it. Try to reinsert it or use a good known hard drive.

Hope this helps.

Lap top can't find hard drive


Hi,

Here are some steps that you can try.

- Check if the harddrive is recognized in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Normally you will see values beside "Drive 0" at the first page if the harddrive is detected. If it says none or blank, then it is not detected. Reload BIOS default settings and try to boot up the unit to see if it will pick up the harddrive.
- If the harddrive is not detected in the BIOS, you need to unscrew the harddrive compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
- Reinsert the harddrive and check harddrive cable. Also try to use a good known harddrive if yours is defective.

Hope this helps.

Hard drive not detected. When i trying to install Win 2003 Server Std edition. It does not detect the hard drive.


you will need to download the RAID drivers from the Dell website
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R74082&SystemID=PWE_PNT_P3C_2450&os=WNT5&osl=en&deviceid=1374&devlib=0&typecnt=5&vercnt=7&formatcnt=2&fileid=126163 and load them onto a floppy drive.

Then when installing the server press F6 to install other drivers this will load the PEC drivers and W2k3 will then see your drives

Do not try to load the drivers from a USB as W2k3 is "preset" to only accept drivers from a floppy drive unlike WIndows server 2008

Hope this helps

Howto replace a 160 gig harddrive with a 320gig in a desktop,with a windows vists operating sys.was up graded from a windows xp,BIG MASTAKE.


Use disk imaging software to copy your drive over. I like "Acronis true image home" but there are many you can use. Also if you buy a new hard-drive a lot of time it will include instructions and software to get this done. Here are the basics on what you will need to do: - install the new hard-drive as a slave drive - clone old drive to new drive - remove both drives - reinstall new drive as a master drive and you done. It's not hard once you've done it once.

Install xp on acer extensa 4220 hard disk not detected


Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.

Try it, and mail me update: [email protected]

HOW TO BOOT


If you have access to an external drive enclosure, OR you have a computer you can put the hard-drive from
that machine in temporarily, put the drive in one of them and copy the WIN98 directory to the harddrive.
Once the WIN98 directory is there, you can just install it from there. That is of course if the hard-drive has been
formatted with the /sys command, and set to primary boot drive using FDISK. As far as installing from floppy,..
the floppies haven't been on the market for a LONG time, and if you have them,.. I imagine they've seen better
days. If you HAVE to install from floppy though, use another computer, put in the CD, open the cd using windows
explorer. Once here, click on the WIN98 directory, and locate the files you need ( too many files and directories
to list here ) Seriously the best way would be to use an external drive enclosure ( since it's probably a 2.5" drive
size ) and just copy the whole directory to the drive and forget the floppy idea. It will take MUCH less time.
