an update with a couple of questions
WD sent me a new hard driv which I got today first off I tried to install winXP professional but my disk didn't have service pack two so it couldn't read the all of the 250 gig drive. so I used the winXP home addition which came with the Dell which installed with no problem or so I thought.
when I boot it up it gets to this point
SATA Secondary drive 0 not found
Primary drives 0 not found
Primary drive 1 not found
Strike the F1 kety to continue, F2 to run the setup untility
when pressing F1 it boots to winXP, I can go to run, then command and see everything on the new hard drive
now for my questions I know all Bios are different but could I have something wrong in mine? maybe I change something without knowing it before. the other question now that the drive is formatted can I if I wanted to install the professional version of winXP?
thank you all again,
I'm off to do some searching, reading
