the internal hard drive of my pc, an hp pavillon (a6520.fr) with windows vista home premium crashed. i have unfortunately no recovery cd. so i used another hard drive, the caviar green wd5000aads to replace the dead one, and i downloaded and burned a bootable windows vista cd to reinstall the os on the wd5000aads. the bios recognizes this disk but while installing windows vista no hard drive is found , and windows suggests to look for a driver in order to detect the disk. when browsing for a driver which i dont have, its possible to see the “c” drive, so the disk is shown in explorer but not found for a new installation. one more precision, i have formated the disk in ntfs modus.
has somebody any suggestion to get the disk recognized ?
thanks for your help !
