the Windows xp Setup program does not detect my hard drive

When I try to install Windows XP, it does not detect my hard drive which is visible in the bios.  My bios options are very limited, but I was able to use the bios to change the sata in ide.  It still does not work, and now he is not found with the disc of windows 7 I have.  This isn't a new pc.  He was working at a given time, but foolishly, I formatted the hard drive and have no drivers for my drive hard hitachi.  I bought a new seagate Mak, but now this disc hard is not allocated and is also not detected.  I have no way to get an operating system and I'm in a jam financially... Please help.

SATA drives are not recognized by Windows XP installation disc.  Change the BIOS SATA ATA sometimes solves this problem and allows you to install and sometimes does not.  Microsoft's solution is to press the F6 key when you are prompted for additional drivers, and then insert a floppy disk (Yes, it takes a floppy) with the top driver.

"Limited OEM driver support is available with F6 during installation of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003"
  <>http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/314859 >

Several means have been formulated to work around needing a floppy disk.  You can view the following items:

  • Windows 7 Starter Edition does not recognize a hard drive WD

    Windows 7 Starter Edition does not recognize a hard drive WD, I used until last month. Device Manager sees it, he sees the USB controller (it lists as a mass storage device), but I can't access the information on the hard disk, or make use of the last backup. I tried to uninstall USB drives - it is not the thing. It gets listed under disk drives.

    Thanks for the reply.

    There was no error message: the device has been recognized (listed) by the USB controller and the Device Manager, but not by the management of the disks - so I couldn't access.

    I managed to fix the problem after:

    -J' scanned the computer (DELL Inspiron) with the Safety Scanner
    -J' completely uninstalled all the software associated with an external hard drive
    -J' uninstalled the USB controllers
    -reboot the system
    -reconnected the external HD
    -After gaining access to the drive, I installed the dedicated software

    Best regards

  • Does not detect my HARD drive in the BIOS

    Yesterday, I bought DT01ACA300 of HARD drive and it does not detect.
    I've tried it on two motherboards (different ports and different controllers: AMD, Intel chipset JMicron chipset) with different powers and signal cables (which do not work with my player Samsung HDD and DVD SATA Lite-on), but it won't do no good...

    It seems that the only thing that might have caused it may be the power supply, but I can't check it out because I don't have a spare. I tried to disable most of the unnecessary controllers on MB to lower energy consumption, but it did not help.

    From what I've read on the Internet, it seems that it is not I can do by myself and it is very likely defective drive, but I still have some hope that I can make it work...

    It would be a big problem to return to calm: I'll have to send in another city in the authorized service center so that they would check it, and then only, I can get a replacement (if noone will fly it by then, which can happen...).

  • SeaTools-BACK does not detect my hard drive, how I should zero my HDD now?

    Hi all!
    I use SeaTools for DOS for many years to fill the hard drive of my old ancient PC from scratch and never has a problem. However, today when I had zero fill the Momentus ST9500325AS 500 GB SATA laptop 1 year, I got to know that the last SeaTools for DOS can not find a controller to read my hard drive. My laptop has Intel HM67 chipset. As the 'last' SeaTools BACK has been updated in 2011, I understand very well that Seagate does not update the tool to add the controller of my chipset. So all I want to ask is, how do I zero fill my drive now? Should I go for some other tools? Are they reliable? Please suggest some good I knew that nothing else than seatools for zero fill.
    Thank you for your help

    Hi Satyam,

    Formatting zeros is a comprehensive method of wiping a disk storage. When formatting a storage drive deletes data on the surface, the data can still be recovered until it is replaced. Formatting the storage disk wipes zeros, replaces the data deleted by a series of zeros and then wipe the drive again to make recovery of data beyond the civil means. Zeros of formatting is usually done to hard disk drives and flash drives can also benefit from the method.

    We can refer to this article and check if that helps.

  • AiOSoftwareNPI (* .ms) the Setup program does not start when I start my computer.

    original title: AiOSoftwareNPI

    I'm having a problem with a software AiOSoftwareNPI problem (* .ms) the Setup program does not start when I start my computer.

    I know it's a Windows Installer but I don't have a disc with this route. I even tried to reinstall the windows xp disk and it does not work, I still

    get the same box when I shutdown and restart. The box allows me not to leave him continues to appear.

    Thank you

    Ms. C

    After doing a Google search for AiOSoftwareNPI and followed by the reading of many different threads in various forums, I found that it is for drivers for an HP all-in-One printer.

    You have an HP printer?

    If so, the usual suggestion was to place your HP printer disk in your CD/DVD drive and restart. After reboot would be installed the necessary files and the pop - up would more appear at startup. I don't know if it will actually work because in all the discussions I've read, none of the original poster never responded by saying that it worked or not.

    The next most common suggest was to download the latest driver for your HP printer to your version of Windows (including at the level of the ILO) and install it. Yet, not a single original poster has responded.

    In fact, if you have an HP printer I suggest to visit the web site of HP support below the link to get the latest drivers and their installation. Visit the support for the correct installation method and if you need to remove the old driver first. You can also visit the communities of Support HP for assistance (a link for communities is also on the next page).

    You can order form of the manufacturer's recovery media.

    The reason why the system as non-authentique shows currently is using a license in Volume KMS - these licenses must be re-activated at least every 6 months by connecting to the KMS user license activation server.

    It will require a reformat and reinstall whatever you do, unless you can connect to the KMS - Volume media server cannot be upgraded under normal conditions.

    Hello

    You can use this Recovery Partition to reinstall Vista to his new condition with the right edition of Vista.

    This recovery partition was photographed on your hard drive by HP during the manufacturing of the factory.

    You press F11 on startup to start the process of recovering back to factory settings.

    Here is the information about HP.

    If the recovery partition is damaged, you can buy HP's Vista recovery discs for a small fee.

    If HP's Vista recovery disks, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.
