Also, I am thinking that the reason it's not working is because I have no way to install drivers for my hard drive.
First of all, the HD didn't even come with a disk for installing drivers, though it says you have to on the website at www.maxtor.com. The only disc that I can use is the MaxBlast 4 boot cd, which is supposed to install the drivers. Burnt the .iso, but absolutely NOTHING happens when I restart with the disc in the optical drive. It goes to the motherboard screen, then a black screen showing devices, not recognizing or just not doing anything about the boot cd. I'm not sure if you need Windows already installed when you use the boot cd, but that is all I can think of.
Second of all, the website says that you can install the drivers by hitting F6 during the beginning of Windows install. It also talks about using a floppy in the instructions, not even mentioning what to do if you don't have a floppy drive because you have no use for it. I have tried just putting MaxBlast.exe on a cd and using it through the F6 option, but nothing happens, and as I said before the boot cd doesn't work.
So basically, I have no way to install any drivers onto the hard drive. Any suggestions?
