Pyree a b D Laptop October 11, 2011 7:55:53 AM Go to your device manager. The device in your computer that has an exclamation mark on it requires a driver to be installed to work. Download the driver for those device. If you need help to identify the device, upload a screenshot of the device manager and use the link photo function of the forum to post the scree shot on this thread. pawn3d October 11, 2011 8:09:13 AM How can I get to the device manager, when I cannot even install the OS? Pyree a b D Laptop October 11, 2011 8:29:40 AM Oh, you haven't installed the OS yet because there is no HDD and and you suspect it is because the driver is missing, is that correct? Sorry, I though you were only having a driver problem after reinstalling Window Vista. Is the HDD detected in bios? pawn3d October 11, 2011 3:01:24 PM Yes, it is detected in the BIOS, but Vista, nor 7 disks see it. Pyree a b D Laptop October 11, 2011 11:59:25 PM What HDD is it (manufacturer and model)? Try the window installation under all mode, AHCI, RAID and IDE. pawn3d October 12, 2011 4:51:32 PM It's a Toshiba MK1011GAH Again, I can't find where to switch to RAID, AHCI or SATA in the BIOS. Pyree a b D Laptop October 13, 2011 8:03:27 AM You may want to slipstream Window Vista with nLite or vLite to add the driver in. pawn3d October 14, 2011 10:38:41 AM Can you tell me how to do that?
