I’m struggling with a problem for a recent WD 320 drive my dad purchased. The hard drive on his Gateway desktop with a Pentium 4 failed, so we bought a new one. The BIOS install seems to work fine, though it is limited to the 137 GB of it. Going to the BIOS shows the hard drive. It’s cleanly partitioned and hasn’t been used before.
However, when trying to install Windows XP, both the home and pro versions pull up a “Setup cannot find the hard drive.” issue. And I’ve been looking for the right drivers so that it can recognize it to no avail. No other computer in the house has a floppy, so using those cannot work.
Can anyone help?
