Please Help ASAP, I cant get win XP to install :(:(:(

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I tried to install windows xp, and I reformatted and installed it. Then when it goes to boot up theres a blue screen with a STOP message in white letters. So I tried windows 2000 to make sure it wasnt the cd and then now it says, setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer. All the cables are in nice and secure and it is a sata Hard drive. Any ideas, Please help I need to get this fixed. thanks

i dont think u can install the drivers until u actually get into windows... so i think u need to see if your bios is recognizing that u have the hard drive...

well some hd's need to have drivers installed during the windows installation process. When you first begin you'll see a deal that says press F6 to install 3rd party drivers... press F6 and put your driver disc in and you're good to go.
