I installed a New 100 GB HD in My Dell Latitude C600, It will not boot and gets error message of "Error loading operationg system" I have a New Windows XP CD in teh CD drive. In Setup does not recognize the Hard Drive. Any Recomendations?
This means the bios is loading from the new hard drive that doesn't have the os installed yet. Go to the bios and make sure it is booting from the cd drive first. This should fix the problem and let you boot from the windows xp cd and install the os to your new hard drive.

it comes preinstalled with windows 7, what error message are you receiving while attempting install? if you mean it doesn't load the actual OS after booting, what error are you getting? does start up repair attempt to run?
you haven't set your bios and or your setup to read the new device ok so go to the bios f11 or in setup f2 make sure the the setting in these are set to primary under your new HD name should be there if it see's it do in the bios and in the setup and should work for ya. ! the fixist good luck and have a nice day
press F2 to get into the dell bios and be sure the HDD is listed as first to boot, Then if restart turns the same error, press F10 and run the pre-boot system assesment check. if error 0141 appears, your HDD is failing and needs to be replaced
You operating system is corrupted meaning that your harddrive has failed or you got a bad virus. Only fix is having the operating system reinstalled and mostly likely that data is lost. Sorry to have to break the news to you and hope that you can get this resolved.
