Hi everyone, New to this forum. My tower, which was running XP, but is probably 6+ years old got pretty heavily infected with viruses/malware. After several attempts at clearing it out with software, I decided i should just reformat because its been awhile and I never really have. I think the first thing I did was boot from CD using a copy of windows. Probably not the original used for my computer, but I don't think that matters... Each time I attempt to install windows however, it gets to a screen that says "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed on your computer" and claims setup cannot continue. I've searched a bit for answers but none seem to fit or have solutions that will work for me since it should not be a hardware issue. I also went into the RAID utility and had that reformat something thinking that might help or be necessary. Part of the problem is I can't find any of my original installation disks aside from the motherboard and graphics card. On boot up and in BIOS it claims there is no IDE channel 1 Master or Slave... What can I do or is there anything you can recommend? I thought I saw somewhere that my HD or motherboard might not be compatible with this XP disc and I would need to make one of my own that would allow detection of my HD, is that possible?
