Greetings all, first post. I have a HP dv9000 notebook. 2 150 gig hd's. I am trying to install xp pro and i get the message listed above. I have ensured both hd's are connected and partition magic is able to detect and format both however I desire. I have tried logical and primary partitions and both fat32 and ntfs. Not sure if that last step was relevant, but I am kinda a novice. I also pulled the cmos battery for a while and tried again. I am left to post this with my mac Any ideas? Edit: while waiting for a response I meandered my way through another forum suggesting it is that I do not have my hd set to sata if that makes sense. Everyones suggestion was to go into the setup and change them to sata instead of raid. The original solution posted was made by a fellow said to use the phoenix bios which it looks like I am using and said that he was able to change it in there but I do not have that option anywhere.
