Can not install XP on new hard drive
Posted on 2008-11-13
I am working on a Dell Inspiron 5150. The hard drive crashed, so this guy got a new seagate 160 GB drive. I am not sure how big of drive this system will support (and could not find the answer on dell's site), but it shows the full 160 in bios. When I try to install XP from cd it crashes. It was hanging right before where you select the partition & format. I hooked the drive up to a desktop and formatted it with NTFS and now it gives a Blue Screen during install--before selecting the partition. I can not find my USB floppy drive to flash the Bios, but I'm not sure that is the problem anyway. Any Suggestions? Thanks for your help!
