No Hard Drive for Windows Install

Hello everyone!

I saw today "Blue Screen", while I was on with the game online. I can not load Windows and when I want to reinstall Windows can not find some of my 2 hard drives. Immediately I think it is hardware problem, but Windows should find one of my hard drives.

Someone who has a solution?

Thank you in advance

Re: No Hard Drive for Windows Install

Try the following in your BIOS ( "del" button or what to press to get that into the bios) and (DISABLED) "following which you can find Cool'n'Quiet Support, Spread Spectrum, Stop unused PCI Slot Clock, dynamic overclocking, Hard Disk SMART "+" Halt Keyboard Error, USB Legacy Support, On-Chip SATA IDE Controller" BootROM function (only if you are not running the RAID system.

Bios can not find my hard drives. Have changed the cable, it has not helped.

If it is windows xp, it is most likely that you have a SATA controller is not supported during installation. You must either use a driver disk is loaded during installation or create a Windows XP SP3 CD.

Re: No Hard Drive for Windows Install

I ran with IDE disks so far. Now I bought a Sata drive and it has solved the problem. I think that maybe my problem lies in faulty IDE ports, or defective disks. Doubt, however that the 2 disks burned at the same time.

So, the home and test on my old IDE hard drives to see if they marvel known works again.
