have bought a new dell xps 8000 and im having problems installing windows 7 on it.
Window 7 cant find any drive to install to
have loaded the systems check cd and have identified a problem, namely;
Error code 4400:011A
msg: SCSI_0.000_DISC_GENERIC_SD/MMC - target not ready
Is there an easy fix for this???
Having the exact same problem on month old xps 800. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same error code when upgrading to Windows 7 from Nov 2009 and now success - try these:
1. clean up files on hard drive - start, accessories, system tools, disk clean up
2. defragment hard drive - start, accessories, system tools, disk defragmenter
3.turn off/disable biometric software - i.e face recognition. This primarily is the problem as windows 7's final process after installation is for you to log in - it therefore requires you to manually log in, so have password handy. then reboot.
4.when logged back in manually - close all open programmes on task bar as this takes up memory
Now install - hope this works - good luck
