Your not going to find a hard drive driver. You can get the chipset driver for the motherboard bios here: http://us.acer.com/acer/service.do?LanguageISOCtxParam=...
Make sure you have the correct numbers inputted.
All HD's should be reconized by the Bios during boot. Then in turn by windows.
Hi thanks for the reply but the bios is on the website is a differnet version than the one on the machine the bios picks the drives up ok on the bios but wont pick them up when i try to reinstall windows, because when i switch the machine on it comes up no op system found have formatted the drive and marked it as active and there is ntfs ???
im not getting an error when i start the computer with up a recovery cd it comes up saying that no op system can be found then when i put the cd in try to start the setup process it wont pick the drives up but they are being picked up in the bios, i have also try to repair thought the setup and it states that the computer cant be repaired automatically ????
yes that is correct the bios is picking up the drives in the boot menu, i can get access to a command prompt through a backdoor program called active @ i use to config other computers i use i have a partion manager in it but it wouldnt pick the drives up either
All I was trying to say was that you can't load win 95 on a fat32 partition
you cant load win 98 in a win 2000 partition. So you may not be able to load vista on a win 7 partition.
Heres a link to Hitachi's web site and downloads. If their drives needed a driver it will be here: http://www.hitachigst.com/support/downloads/
