If the BIOS can't find the hard disk, then Windows won't either.
Try another drive.
I know you ys has addres this question before and i did search the archive but found not the answer i seek. Do i need a new hd or computer??
System info: HP Pavilion Ze4600, AMD Athlon, 1862Mhz, XP and 1gb.
First BIOS shows HD as NONE. I went to bios set the system to default,hd at auto detect and cd-rom as first boot in sequence. System boots up,says there is no operating system. I restart with XP CD. It boots up, went through xp inspection,load all the files,gave me the option to repair,install or quit, i chose install and at this point I choose enter for xp setup and now it tells me that "setup did not find hard disk installed in the computer"
Now where do i go from here?
The HD shows no damage,burn etc.I cannot say what size hd it is as it is not written on the drive in a format that i cn interpet, so guys! please point me in the right direction.... Thanks
Happy fathers day to all the fathers in this forum
