My mate sent his Packard Bell Imedia M224 (Intel Celeron D 340, 256 DDR RAM, 80gb 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive, DVD+R9,Integrated SIS 651 3D/2D Graphics, Integrated Audio AC '97, Microsoft Windows XP) away to be fixed by Harvey Norman and they basically said they couldnt do a thing about the pc so they just wiped the drive/disk clean(including all previously installed drivers and windows had been removed).
I go to try and set-up windows xp fresh using the windows setup disk and it states that it cannot find the hard disk or its corrupt, or requires a special device driver.
The Drive details are as follows:
Hitachi-LG Data Storage
DVD WRITABLE/(CD-RW DRIVE)
On the Drive the Master/Slave Selector is set to Cable Selector as it originally came as.
I have no idea what to do next, When it boots it recognises it as Secondary Master (Channel 1: Primary Master)but doesnt actually recognise the SATA Drive in the Primary or Secondary slot :S
Any help would be greatly appreciated to get this pc up and running again.
