Computer won't boot from hard drive after windows formats a partition in "h

By amar_jagu ·
Just bought a samsung 40GB hard drive, and formated HDD with winxp sp2 cd IN HP BRIO BA410

never had a problem like this before with the disk, so i've figured its the hard drive

after windows formats the new partition, it reboots, like it normally should.

and instead of booting off the hdd like it then should, it continues to try to boot off the cdrom, even if i change the order in the BIOS.

i'm guessing the BIOS isn't recognizing my hdd, even though windows can see the partition clearly. PLEASE HELP

I'm guessing that you have Formatted the Wrong HDD

Why use the Install CD when all you need do is Open Windows go to Disc Management and right Click on the new Drive to Format?

If this computer can not boot off the HDD you have formatted the wrong HDD and now have 1 Blank and one unformatted HDD in this computer.
