Hey, so I’m trying to get this Windows XP machine to boot the OS, but I’m stuck. I actually managed to get it out of this before, by what I thought was spamming random F keys to try and get into the BIOS, but it doesn’t seem to be working this time. I think it’s something to do with Hibernate mode, but I don’t know for certain. I know for sure that the OS is there, I’ve gotten it to work before, but I can’t get it working anymore.
I ran two versions of the Windows installer. One, was a ghetto factory reset, and the other was an x86 XP Home Edition ISO. Both reported/detected that there was NOT a hard drive.
This is really weird though because as far as I’m aware, I have NOT touched any of the hardware in that section too much at all. I don’t know what’s going on here, or why, but I need to investigate further.
I think I’m going to try and swap pieces with the spare that I have and try to see if I can get some kind of better configuration working/going.
