setup did not find any hard disk drives in your computer
Posted on 2010-11-11
Dell xps 400. I boot the install cd (mce) and I get the error 'setup did not find any hard disk drives in your computer'.
Bios sees the drive. I put in another drive that was previously loaded on another machine so I could get to windows and upgraded the bios. still nothing afterward.
I have tried other xp os cds but all have the same issue.
I just tried another hard disk and still the same issue.
what am I missing? drives are sata and at sata0.
(do I need a driver to use a floppy on for the 'hit f6 to install driver' that appears during windows initial install?
thanks in advance
