I own a Presario X1015US laptop and recently purchased a new hard drive for it (Western Digital Scorpio Blue PATA 160GB) however when I insert the operating system CD it goes through the whole process until it gets to a page where it says:
Windows XP Home Edition Setup
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connectd to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit Setup, press F3.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong and hope someone can help me. For example -
- I checked the Bios and I do not see where the drive is located - am i missing something and is there something else I should do?
- Is the drive I purchased compatible for this model - I was told by Fry's Electronics that it is.
Can someone please help me?
