This is what happens when I try to reinstall winxp on another used computer (dell 8400 with a SATA drive)
The windows setup screen appears and loads files.
The next screen says welcome to setup and offers three options .
1-to setup XP press enter. 2 To repair XP press R 3 to exit without installing XP press F3
I press enter and the following message comes up.
Setup did not find any hard disk installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected. And any disk related configuration is connect. ect. press F3 to quit. It does this if I try repair also.
The drive works since I can boot the PC without the CD. It has the command.com on the C:
I checked the connections to the HD and Motherboard.
Any help would be welcome
