BIOS recognizes HD but windows doesn't! Cant install XP!
Im replacing my internal HD because my other one stopped working. When I boot from CD windows cant install XP because it says it doesn't recognize the HD. When I go into my BIOS is shows my HD is installed. My Sata controller only lets me change to AHCI and Compatibility Mode. Compatibility mode lets me install windows but it only gives me 100GB instead of the full 500GB. I already formatted the hard drive to NTFS and it still wont work. I read I should maybe pull the CMOS battery out but I am not sure how. Any suggestions on what I should do??
Is this a good question?
