Hi all. I'm having a problem with this Western Digital Caviar Blue Hard Disk.
I can install Windows XP with no problems. But when i try to boot with Windows 7 it's doesn't recognize the disk as a capable install device.
By the way, if i select the option to find drivers....i can see that the disk is appearing like a "pen drive" o "dvd drive", etc. So Windows 7 recognize the HD but not for installing into it.
Motherboard: ASUS M4A78-EM Lastest BIOS; Default settings.
The computer isn't mine, Is my brother's computer. And all started with some Blue Screens (BSOD) after a manually bad restart (turning off the pc) in Windows 7.
Before all this problem. I tried WD booting tool, Quick test was failing then i tried Full media scan to repair de disk, and now is working fine..."except from this problem that i have". Also i tried full zero write in that tool. And used HD regenerator with no problems or bad sectors found.
