Acer laptop cant detect new hard drive

January 30, 2011 at 06:48:17
Specs: Windows XP, Intel Pentium M740/ 2Gig Ram
Bought a samsung Spinpoint HM160HC to upgrade my Acer aspire 1642WMLi from a tosh MK80gas Hard drive ( Both IDE's). My OS is WINXP.. The laptop could not detect it. Had gone to see the BIOS set up and D2D is enabled but HDD is blank. The new drive works alright as an external drive through USB though..
Any help will be appreciated please. Thank you.

How are you trying to install XP onto the new drive? Are you trying to use the D2D utility? You are booting it from your backup disc?
