Just installed new HDD in Toshiba satellite pro 4300, it will not recognize in system set up in bios. Also tried to load Windows xp, it also says no hard disk installed. Do I need to get into CMOS to to change HDD settings to auto-detect? I have tried holding esc while booting, delete,f1, still can't find cmos set up.
Any help would be great. :thumbsup:

I'm pretty sure the cmos is the bios, but bios is more appropriately termed. If you remove the cmos battery, it resets your bios settings to default. Are you talking about not being able to get into the bios? If so, repeatedly mash the delete or F# button, don't hold them. The delete button is the most common, but I would also try F2, F8, F10, and F12.
