Hi

You need to run the HDD manufacturer's tools and initialize the drive.

Alright so that didnt work....

I got that Lifeguard Tools run and it said the drive was partitioned and formatted and to put in the OS Disc and restart. widows setup loaded and I hit enter to start the install and when it came time to select the drive to install it still says:

"Unknown Disk <There is no disk in this drive>"

So I hit C again to try and sneak by but it obviously doesnt work and gives me the stop error... reads as so:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to you computer.

The problem seems to be cause by the following file: setupdd.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

(blah blah blah blah)

Technical Information:
*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE5133708, 0x00000000, 0xF75979A8, 0x00000002)
*** setupdd.sys - Address F75979A8 base at F7570000, Datestamp 41107c8f

So yeah still stuck any help would be great!

OK THANKS .... haha Or NOT but i figured it out.... To get Windows setup to recognize the drive I had to go into BIOS set up and change the SATA setting to IDE and then it picked it up and let me install.... Thanks
