I bought this Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500 gig hard drive but my pc wont detect it. I have an old hard drive and a sata hard drive, their both working fine. I removed the sata I have from western digital and replaced it with this 500 gig Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 but it will not detect it or let me install vista... normaly you connect the hard drive, put in the vista cd and you format or whatever and install vista.... why isnt it simple anymore? lol... please help... what am I missing?? its an ASUS p5ql-e motherboard... I tried selecting raid, ide, I dont know what ever to do, its set to auto detect sata drives 1-7 or 1-6 they all day auto.... heeeeeeeeelp!
