WinXP Hardware Changed.

Recommended Posts


I installed my windows xp on my 40gb western digital HD when I have 256 meg of SDRAM (2x128megSDRAM). I chose full format and it split the partition in two [C: 38921 and an unpartition 8 meg] Later, I took those two stick of memory out and installed 512 meg of SDRAM (2x256megSDRAM). My HD froze and dead. I tried reinstall windows xp and it wouldn't full format the HD. Its give me access error of the HD. I was wonder if windows XP utilize the unpartitioned space to write all the hardware information and if it changed, you can't install windows xp again (copy protection?).

Please help. I can provide more specific information upon request.

I ran western digital disk diagnostic and it gives me error 0207. Anyone know what that is?

Greatly Appreciate.

More than likely your hard drive has just gone bad. And Win XP wont reinstall because your hard drive is not working enough for it to do so.

Which means a replacement is required unfortunately.
