Windows 7: IBM R40 7077 cannot see hard drive

IBM R40 7077 cannot see hard drive

I was just playing with an old r40 with a 40gb hard drive. Ubuntu sees it as /dev/sda but the win 7 installer doesn't see it.

I only have a usb jump drive with 77 with me, but I don't understand why 7 cannot see the hd?

I thought it would be fun to see how 7 runs on this older hardware.

What am I missing.

A BIOS upgrade allowing it to work better with Vista (and thus 7)....

Does it not see the HD at all? If Ubuntu does then format the Drive as ext3 or NTFS and then try W7 again....
