Its an Acer Aspire One 722 Netbook and WD Scorpion Blue 320GB HDD and Im trying to install Windows 7 Home Premium. Whenever I boot in BIOS it recognizes my hard drive. THe problem is when I get to the setup screen and it asks me to choose a storage and my HDD is showing up unallocated. Is there a way to check if my HDD is dead or can it be formatted?
You can install to an unallocated space, Windows 7 will partition and format the space.
It wont let me. My HDD Just shows up as 0.0 GB with only one partition. The setup is asking to choose a storage device and wont let me install Windows 7 on this hard drive. The laptop crashed previously and now I'm trying to do a clean install and it wont let me use my HDD. I tried removing it and connecting it back. Still nothing.
