Hi, Thanks for looking and possibly helping. I'm trying to install windows XP 32 bit home edition onto a desktop. I boot to the XP cd and let it load up, but then when i go to install XP i get the message saying this ' setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer ' Like shown on this image taken from google images. http://hostthis.nl/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/setupcouldnotfind.jpg I've been reading about it online and it talks about disabling sata in bios and all sorts of stuff... Everything i've tried changing in the bios has made no difference whats so ever, i keep getting the same message. The hard drive is defintly there. It can be seen in the bios and i can also boot the computer into windows (Trying to format because of viruses) Could someone help me with this please as i am really stuck and not sure what to try now. I've attached some images of photos from device manager...maybe they will help?
