Dell Latitude D600 with new Hitachi 30GB Drive Not Recognizing

\015 Able to boot from Windows XP CD but does not see the new HD when it comes time to write to the HD. HD model is Hitachi HTS424030M9AT00 ATA/IDE. Downloaded the drivers for the HD and attempt to press F6 during the boot process but the system tell me it is looking for a floppy drive to read from. I changed the boot process, disabling the search for a floppy. Do these HDs need any jumpers applied? Currently it is set up for Device 0 which should be right.\015

Answers :

XP install is not detecting any hard disk.
\015\012No jumpers are required for laptops, can only have one hard drive in a laptop.
\015\012Check the BIOS for the hard disk configuration, make sure that it is set on Auto (detect).
\015\012You may have a faulty hard disk, you can check it by booting up with a floppy DOS boot disk, run fdisk to see if it detects the hard disk, OR connect this hard drive to a USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port and if it detects it as an external drive the it is OK.
