I have a new Seagate SATA hard drive.
Installed and loaded windows XP sp2.
When the system boots I see a black screen and it says No drive found, No Drive Detected.
Then winxp Starts to load with no problems.
Is this common for SATA drives? Never used one.
Also, noticed on the front of the case the red HD light is blinking. It never stops. Even when the computer is idol.
I've been told the HD is going bad, or its malware??
The drives been reformatted several times and the only thing on it is Windows XP.
The HD was tested with the seagate HD tool, all passed.
Even changed the SATA cable.
Any thoughts as to why the red light is blinking all the time and why I see ( no drive dectected )
