Reformating help: HDD not recognized

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im reformatting my moms computer because it had a virus on it. I have the partition deleted. But when I boot from the xp cd, I select to install windows, but then it says :
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
If it matters it is a SATA HD.
Any ideas?

Any help is MUCH appreciated.

After deleting the partition, did you create a new one?
