Re: NB100-12: cannot install Windows XP

I cannot install the operating system to start, for a clean installation, the cd boots and seems to start installation, drivers etc. start loadind
Then before you get to the point "want install you windows page, an error message appears saying my HARD drive is damaged or has a virus?"

Any ideas?

I can't really help, but I see the same problem :( I tried XP, 2000 and server 2003 installation CD. Either I get the same message you saw, or Installer Blue-screens.

I've seen it suggested elsewhere to change the SATA in the BIOS from AHCI to compatibility, but that does not help either.

I have to admit, it's as if the Windows Installer has problems see the hard drive, but I don't know what to do about this. Install a different disk drive, maybe?

    Here is another solution, you can try to see if you can get Windows 7 to install correctly.

    Before you try the following, make sure that you can always read the character product activation key 25 on your label Windows COA (5 blocks of 5 alphanumeric games).

    An example of a COA label can be seen here.

    You can create an installation disk yourself using another PC - just download the good Disk Image ( this must be the version exact same origin supplied with your laptop ) from the link below and use an app like ImgBurn to burn the ISO correctly on a blank DVD - a guide on the use of ImgBurn to write that an ISO on a disc is here.  These Images are clean and a well respected source, however there are only limited versions available.

    Windows 7 sp1-iso-official-32-bit-and-64-bit

    Use the disk to perform the installation, enter the activation key of Windows on the label of the COA at the request and once the installation is complete, use ' 'phone Method' described in detail in the link below to activate the operating system -this made method supported by Microsoft and is popular with people who want to just have a new installation of Windows 7 without additional software load normally comes with OEM installations.

    All pilots additional and the software, you may need can be found here.

    No hardware changes or software recently made to the system: I followed the usual procedure to install Windows updates.

    Method of connection: wireless

    Technical expertise: intermediate level

    Performed troubleshooting: because the error # 80071 A 90 type indicated by the system, I followed the instructions of Windows Help and Support, for example to run Microsoft Fix it which did not work; a more advanced method has also been used, who recommended to start Windows Update in Mode safe, then open Windows Update and install the updates and then restart normally.

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you.


    Did you install the SATA drivers first?
    You need this driver to recognize the HARD drive!

    You must download the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. You should find it on the page of the Toshiba driver or the Intel Web site.

    You must perform the installation of an external USB FDD drive using the F6 key during the installation of Win XP.

    Go into the BIOS (F1 at startup), set the "compatible" SATA mode (NO AHCI), then press F10 to save and exit, and you should be all set.

    I see that you have a problem in the installation of new Windows USB port. It seems that your HDD was not detected, right? It's because your laptop uses a SATA HDD.

    what you need to do are:

    1. download the driver AHCI SATA website of intel. (just google it)

    2. copy the files (size 700 KB for 6 files) into the new USB

    3. reboot and install your laptop with win 7 (dvd/usb)

    4. by the time win 7 installation reached the drive to install (none detected), click load drivers.

    5. now load your other USB SATA drivers.

    6. then will show all disks in your system.

    7. continue with the installation process.

    hope this helps.

    (My Automatic Updates usually work, but this time not to go.) Updates are obtained through IE8 browser, but I prefer FireFox for daily use.)

    Thank you! Success!

    I used method 2, because I had already tried method 1 earlier, but the "fix it" went wrong. After reading the information from method 2, I opted to use my FireFox instead of IE8 browser, because I suspected that the process Internet Explorer that are included with the update was a large part of the cause of my problem. Among the options, I used Microsoft Download center to locate the update I needed and then through its validation and finally made the download and reboot. Voila!
