The machine it's self is not running a OS of any type, it was running vista then apparently after trying to update crashed and has not worked since.
How did you go about Formatting this HDD when attempting to Install Xp?
This can sometimes delete some Drivers for Computer (Especially if it was an OEM)
I don't actually remember, I think when it came time to edit partitions we just deleted it because with XP we were having troubles getting it all setup. But the type of OS does not seem to matter what does matter are these stupid SATA drives, why is everything so difficult with SATA drives?
