Specs: Windows xp, CPU pentium dual 2 gigs ram
Facts: 1. two year old Lenovo laptop; 2. new Sata 2.5 harddrive initialized & formatted but no system on it. I trying to install Windows XP on new hard drive via optical drive. Windows XP install disc runs ok and loads files; then
install stops and I get error message: 1. check for viruses on system; 2. remove any newly installed harddrives and make sure harddrive is properly configured & terminated; 3. run chkdsk /f . The hard drive is a new SATA
Hitachi 500 gig.; original HDD was Seagate 160 gig.that died. I am not aware of any jumpers or configuration switches on SATA 2.5 drive. How can I get past this error message and install Windows XP?

"error message" is it a blue screen? If not post the error massage. How did check virus when xp isn't installed? Did u load sata driver?

Thanks for your help. I took the easy route and just installed
Windows 7, full version (my customer had no xp or Vista disc
so I couldn't do an upgrade) and 7 overcame all issues about
drivers. It installed perfectly on the SATA drive and no unnecessary errors.
