JSI Tip 7319. You receive a 'No Disk in Drive' message when you try to setup or repair Windows XP?

When the list of possible install partitions is displayed during a Windows XP setup or repair, the following message is displayed:

No Disk in Drive.

This behavior will occur if any of the following are true:

- Windows XP requires a driver for a RAID controller.

- Windows XP requires a driver for a SCSI controller.

- You have an Iomega Zip drive installed, or plugged in to your computer.

To resolve this problem, use the appropriate remedy that follows:

Zip Drive:

1. Unplug or remove the Iomega Zip drive.

2. Restart the Windows XP setup or repair.

3. When you have finished, reinstall the Iomega Zip drive.

RAID or SCSI controller:

1. Download the latest Windows XP driver for your controller.

2. Create an 3 1/2 floppy installation disk for the controller card drivers.

3. Start the Windows XP Setup or repair.

4. Press F6 when you see the following message:

Press F6 if you need to install a third party SCSI or RAID driver.

5. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the 3rd-party driver for your controller.

6. Continue the setup or repair of Windows XP.
