- laptop hard drive not recognized by bios

rate this thread
was at one
time recognized by the bios, but when i tried to install
os; it kept saying os
not found. I then put it on a desktop and i
managed to install win xp but when i
put it back on the laptop, the
hard drive was not being recognized in bios.
help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Re: laptop hard drive not recognized by bios
What typing is indicated in BIOS setup for the drive? "Auto" is the
usual choice, yours might be set to "User". You might set "Clear NVRAM
One Time on Next Boot" (I think this is what your BIOS says), and reboot.
BTW, what size was the old drive? Did you have problems installing XP
on the desktop, indicated by your use of the word "managed"?
