I am using a Windows XP running windows 10 with two HDDs
Ok you have several issues, some unrelated with each other.
You say you are using XP and Running Windows 10 on two HDD's
, What does this mean? Are you dual booting between XP and Windows 10 and they are on separate HDD's? Or do you mean something else? Like both Windows OS are on one HDD and the other is for storage?
If your HDD is not detected in the Bios, it will not be detected with a boot disc or in Windows. Unplug one HDD and try to boot the computer with that, this will also determine if one of the drives is making noises, not the new one.
If you have unplugged all older drives and plugged in just the new drive, and it is still making clicking or scraping noise, then there may be an issue with your P
nit, not providing enough power. What is the make, model# and wattage on the label of the PSU
If the drive shows up in the Bios, but not the install disc/USB for Windows, then boot into Setup (Bios) go to Hard Drive Mode
. If installing XP, you need to change the HDD Mode to Legacy
, but if installing Windows 10 the Mode should be AHCI.
Then the Setup disc will recognize the drive.
