HDD 120GB failed in a P3 Mesh running XPSP2. Replaced with an 80GB Samsung HDD. Recognised in BIOS with auto detect. Started to install XP. Partition made - goes through the motions of creating an NTFS format - ends but still shows partition unrecognised. Changed jumper settings - tried M,S & CS. Changed ribbon cable.
Put the HDD in a Dell (older) worked like a dream. Installed XP using the Dell. Put the drive back in the Mesh. No work. Now not getting as far as the format screen. Bootable CD loads files and then says starting windows and throws BSOD up about Page Error. HDD installed at end of cable with no other device on cable
Run out of ideas. Any help much appreciated
