Z61t Hard drive not recognized

2008-04-04, 0:45 AM
Im working on a z61t (9443A41) for a friend.  He installed xp and was attempting to install the required drivers when things went bad. The computer displays no hard drive found no matter what you do. So far I have removed the hard drive (fujitsu mhv2060bh) hooked it up on another computer via cable adapters, the hard drive is readable, I have tested it with fujitsu's diagnostic program as well as with partition magic. I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled it. I have updated the bios to v2.24 (7FETA6WW) via bootable cd  and using ultimate boot disk cleared the cmos. The boot order is correct and im completely out of ideas. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated I also have the restore cd he ordered from "user-guides.co.uk" but it doesnt seem to be bootable

HDD bios modes: AHCI can´t be recognized by a clean installation from a xp cd rom, must be in COMPATIBILITY to do that,
