O/S Boot Disk not seeing Hard Drive
Posted on 2010-09-22
I have an HP Netbook 311-1037NR running Windows 7 Home Premium. I installed PZGP Whole Disk Encryption, but upon login I get a blinking cursor. I only encrypted the boot partition. PGP Tech Support was worthless. I can run the recovery CD and get the system to boot into Windows. PGP said it was the partition. Sounds odd, but ok. So I decided to reload the O/S with XP Pro. I know HP has drivers for Windows XP. I am booting with my Volume License XP Media Disk, but it doesn't see the hard drive. I do not see anything that allows me to put the drive into compatablity mode. So I am at a loss. Any suggestions on getting PGP WDE to work or the ability to reload the drive with XP? I would prefer it loaded with XP, but at this point, it doesn't matter to me which option I take as long as it works.
