I just added a new hard drive to a first generation P4 motherboard I had for my niece. This was put together by a technician but as I have experience installing OS on a clean drive I decided to do the software installation myself.
My installation ran smoothly initially I was able to create a partition do a NTSF format and install Windows XP. It went so far as rebooting the system to the point of the initial Windows XP screen at which point it froze.
I rebooted several times and it got a little further to the next screen where the remainder of the Windows installation begins and again froze.
When I turn the system off then restart it boots from the DVD drive without being prompted by me and goes back into the very first setup screen and when I elect to reinstall Windows I am told that the Hard drive cannot be detected and I should run a diagnostic tool.
Does anyone know what this is happening and what I can do to fix it and where I can download a diagnostic tool.
