Windows 7: No HDD found during windows7 32 Bit setup

No HDD found during windows7 32 Bit setup

32bit RC No HDD found during install I'm attempting to install the Windows 7 RC on an acer aspire pc and I am getting the following error at the screen that asks "Where do you want to install Windows":

"NO drives were found. Click Load Drivers to provide a mass storage driver for installation"

I currently have a200gig IDE HDD installed so it shouldn't be a problem with not having the drivers. 1GB of RAM installed

I'm just wondering if anyone has any other ideas as to what could be causing this error

Hi Bayareageek

If Acer, can still start up in win Vista?
If yes, Screen of Disk Management would be nice.
