New Hard disk recognized by Windows7 but not by BIOS, install failed
I have a compaq CQ60 104TU laptop, my previous harddrive crashed and i has an external 500GB hardrive lying around. So, I opened it up and took the Harddrive out and inserted into my laptop.
When I am trying to load windows into it I get the error
Windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computer's hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disk's controller is enabled in the computer's BIOS menu
The Hard disk has no data, and i don't have a CD-Rom, have made my USB bootable manually using DISKPART (this method of installation has worked for me before)
I have a InsydeH2O Setup Utility
Inside the BIOS the options available to me are:-
->Administrator Password <clear>
->Power-On Password <clear>
->Primary Hard Disk Self Test
->Processor C6 states <Enabled>
->Fan always on <enabled>
**No other options other than this are available to me in the bios**
Note:- In the BIOS Reverting back to Defaults did not work. I have already tried that
Please could you help me repair my laptop.
