I'll try to explain my situation the best i can.

A few weeks ago my laptop got a virus and after some works i got it to work fine again. I decided update the laptop's service pack. After installing it the laptop will not load as a it says "!!0xc0000034!! and because of this you cannot not access anything. From looking online the main advice is to reinstall the operating system. I am trying to do this with a XP installation CD but once it loads it tell me it cannot find a hard disk drive.

How solve this without being able to load the laptop fully?

Any help on how to solve this would be great and i am willing to answer questions in needed.

Thanks for reading,

Alex

Is that XP installation CD - SP1.
Is the HDD in the computer SATA.
If so therein lies the problem.
It may also apply if the CD is SP2.
Does the laptop have a floppy drive.
TRY THIS FIRST

1. On start up press F2 to enter BIOS

2. Expand the "Drives" section

3. Go to "SATA Operation"

4. Change this from "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/ATA"
