Hi,
I cannot boot up my computer and I decideed to reformat the hard disk by re-installing the operating system(windows xp professional). But when I tried this I gets this following error message:

"Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.  Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properley connected to your computer, and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied disgnostic or setup program

Setup cannot continue.
