Last known config, safe mode, nothing works
this is what I would do, boot to your xp, load your sata drivers at the start, (bottom of screen), choose install, then repair

When I boot with CD I hit enter to start setup and it says that it does not find hard drives and I must exit

Yep your right. I guess I have two days of searching for the drives. Too much crap. what would be the download I need from Western Digital if i dont have cd? The file is small enough for a disk, right? Poo, more searchin.

I have several disks but booting from cd brings me to press f6 for third party driver. Im hitting f6 but nothing. next option is f2 for auto recovery, and if i hit f2 it works but I have no such disk.

Is there another key to press other than f6?
