Hey, I have a friend who bought a new hard drive for a laptop. He's not computer literate so
I'm asking for him.

The models are:

laptop- Toshiba Satellite L45

HD- Fujitsu MHW2160BJ 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive

He originally formatted it to NFTS with gparted and I had him re-format it from a command prompt
in vista setup, but vista still won't recognize it to install. Something about drivers missing. What the... it's a harddrive?

Any ideas?

edit- While windows xp would need drivers for sata, windows lists this drive as fully vista compatible, and
Fujitsu's website doesn't even list any drivers.

I notice a lot of other folks who get none or crappy replies. This has been up all day.

I'll prob get plenty responses to telling yall you inappropriate comment removed, but I got none asking a simple question.

I'm sorry you found your experience here less than satisfactory. This site consists of a number of staff and members who volunteer their time. That means you pay nothing. According to the posts I see, you posted at 4:27 pm on a Saturday, and by 1:09 am on Sunday you decide we fail because you didn't get a reply? That is not even 12 hours, and it was on a Saturday evening, when many of us are spending time with our families, not at our computers waiting for the next post so we can respond immediately. Patience is a virtue
