I had this problem when I was beta testing vista but you expect those kind of problems with a unreleased operating system.
If I load this in my PC then it recognises it straight away so why can't my Hewlett Packard laptop do the same.
Can someone please help as this is driving me crazy?
Steverido, you are now introducing that what your trying to restore is to a new hard disk in a laptop?
what make model and such?
That might make a difference on advising you to solve the problem.
My first post mentions that I have a new drive but apologies if I did not make this clear.
The Hewlett Packard is a G61 410SA. I have downloaded the drivers from HP site and put them on a memory stick but when I try to do a fresh install to the Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid (500 Gig) it does not recognise them as being the drivers.
I get the installation to the point where it wants you to load drivers and format.
Like I said before I can put this into my PC and it picks it up straight away. I am running this type of drive as my main drive in the PC because they are the closest you can get to SSD without the price tag.
If you need any further information please let me know and thanks for helping Rich
