i tried to format XP Home Ed. end when it reach the point where it asked whether to repair or to install.....in bot cases it just couldnt find my hard drive...? a friend of mine suggested to go into the set up the BIOS and change the SATA configuration...but it seems that there are no such commands....! i need help! it is a ULi BIOS v1.13 (M5287)
How is the ultimate boot disk gonna help me?
Go into your bios by pressing (depending on make of motherboard) one of the f1-f12 or del key. Normally its f1, del, f12, or f8
In your bios (again depends on bios) should give you an option for changing hard drive configuration, apon opening that up SHOULD show your main drive and the size of it...if you dont see it, then your drive, is either not powered, or connected properly to the motherboard and that is why it cant see your drive. You should check ALL cables going into the hard drive and from the hard drive into the motherboard.
