    Installing XP Hard disk Not found

    If you are facing such kind of issue then i would suggest to check out your hard drive cable it might happen that there would be some cable issue because of which you are getting this message and before going ahead make sure your hard drive is being detected in BIOS too.

    Installing XP Hard disk Not found

    You will get this message if you are having SATA hard disk because Windows XP does not know how to interact with your SATA hard drive, and/or controller. When you first start booting the XP CD-ROM, you will see a little message splash along the bottom of the screen press F6 to for driver diskette. This is the same problem that caused problems with Windows 2K and SCSI interfaces.
