I am trying to install windows 7 for a friend but the hard drive isn't detected within windows setup or within the bios. I have tried installing SATA drivers to try and get windows to recognise the hard drive but to no avail. Is there anything else I can try before assuming that the hard drive may be faulty?
are there any other drives in the system?
if there is try replacing that drive with the new drive . if theres no other drives in the system try pluging the sata cable in another sata slot .. also check your power cable to the drive .
