No Hard Disk Detected During Windows XP Installation - SATA
Posted on 2006-11-05
I have two Western Digital 74 Gigabyte Raptor SATA Hard Drives. One of the hard drives has been formatted and it Loads into windows properly. But I want to format the Hard Drive now because I am selling the computer, but when I try to reinstall Windows XP after it goes through all of its processes I hit enter to Install windows on a hard drive but the next screen says No hard disk detected. Then I have to quit setup.
Here are some things that I have tried:
I have plugged the hard drive into the SATA port on my motherboard and it is regonized by the BIOS but it still gives me that message.
I also plugged both HD's into the SATA Raid controller and setup the Raid array properly, everthing is recognized by the BIOS but i still get the same message when I try to install windows.
Here are the systems specs.
AMD S939 64 bit FX-53 CPU
Asus A8V Deluxe Motherboard
Two Western Digital 74 GB SATA Raptor HD
If anyone of your could help me out that would be appreciated.
