"No hard drive disks were found on this computer" Make sure any HDD are plugged in and powered, any disk related hardware configuration is correct. Run manufacturer supplied diagnostics."
Well i have a SATA hdd, so ive installed wot i think are the appropriate drivers from the HDD manufacturer, by pressing f6 and inserting the driver floppy at the begininig of the setup. But this hasnt made any difference, the computer still says it cant find my hard drive even though it works perfectly fine when turning on the computer. When the computer boots up on the left side whree all the white writing is i can see the HDD manufacturer and model number, so surely this means that the HDD is recognised by the computer but i cant understand why when i try to install it, it says HDD cant be found. Im not sure how relevant this is but the HDD is split into two parts, 120GB C: and 40 GB D:
I also forgot to mention that the HDD is a Maxtor, so i visited their web site and got power max, the diagnostics for my HDD, i ran that on boot up but the only devices available to choose from to test were my DVD Rom drive and my CD/RW drive. So i couldnt run a diagnostics test on a hard drive that didnt show up in the list.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou
