Fresh windows install not recognizing new hard drive
I have an HP Pavilion dv8000. The hard drive crashed, so I bought and installed a new WD Blue hard drive. Several of the bad sectors on the hard drive were in the recovery partition, so I bought a fresh copy of Windows XP. Windows will not recognize that there is a hard drive installed, thus will not install. The hard drive is recognized in the BIOS, and both Fedora and Linux Mint will install and run just fine. I reformatted the entire drive as fat32 using a linux Mint liveCD, and it did not help. Any suggestions are welcome.
