XP only had support for drives up to 127GB. You also have the SATA drive so this is a toxic combo. You'll need to go back to the 60GB drive and remember how to install XP there.
Besides that XP issue/limitation you must immediately apply SP1 or later or you run in this issue on some machines -> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315403
Can anyone help no hard disk drives found/unmountable_boot_volume
I have a hp pavilion dv1000 thats belongs to a family member
the computer one day wouldent start for him all that would
come up was unmountable_boot_volume "technical info: stop:0x000000ed
(0x82d8b508,0xc0000185,0x00000000,0x000000000)", He tried installing
xp thinking that was the problem but when you run the disk it loads the files
then it comes up with no hard disk drives found, so he thought the hard disk was
bad he bought a new one we installed it and the same thing would come up. If we
try to just start the computer it says unmountable_boot_volume if we try to run the
xp pro cd it says no hard disks found after reading a little on the net i took it apart
and removed the rtc battery to try to reset the bios on it no luck same thing.
Now i have ran the hard disk test in bios and it comes back ok on both tests.
Can anyone help thanks in advance.
