I have a dell workst precision 470 dual xeon, 3gb , 160gb maxtor hd sata 150 with win xp pro.created the floppy with PROBABLY THE RIGHT CONTROLER driver and pressed F6, then it was only one option in the list so i did that then, CONTINUW with an oem cd win xp pro spk 2, then at the WELCOME TO SETUP screen, i selected the "TO SETUP WINDOWS XP now press enter" then i got on the screen this Message: "Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your comp. make sure any hard disk drives are powered and properly connected to your computer and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct this may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diag or setup program.set p cannot continue to quit setyp press F3".I have tested the hd with dell diag. tool and al test pass, i believe has to be that the mate boot record has been corrupted or a virus, the thing is i can not even run R console or the Repair/install cause of the above message, is there any suggestion to add this hd to another computer and be able to check the boot.ini and see what is wrong, this is a hd with only one partition, but the problem i have or the one that was created is cause i had a laptop hd that i could not make boot in the laptop so i took it and added to this comp. to the ide 1 controller and then i ran defrag on it, this one has two part c and d so c was the os and d was for other applications, i ran the defrag on it , then i did not remove from the device manager i just simply turn of the dell machine and Physicly remove the laptop hd, then when i was trying to boot the dell 470, i got the the stop error:"STOP: 0X0000007B(0XBA4EB524,0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)", so i think the Boot.ini file is corrupted, the machine is confused or the sata controller driver got corrupted, i am wondering of any sugestion about modifiying the boot.ini file or FIXMBR how in my case, i don't want to reformat the hd .
