VGN-FZ230E BIOS SEES HD BUT XP INSTALLATION DOES NOT

[ Edited ]

Trying to install XP on VGN-FZ230E. The BIOS sees the hard drive but s/w install program does not. The HD is formatted with NTFS. I've removed the drive, and put it in a docking station. It seems all the XP files are there after the XP installation disk has loaded.

 

Then, I put in a hard drive that was unallocated, and no option was given to partition or format the drive. Of course the installation process does not recognize a drive; however the BIOS does see the drive as a 250GB drive.

 

Any suggestions?
