Windows 7: 32bit RC No HDD found during install

32bit RC No HDD found during install

I'm attempting to install the Windows 7 RC on an old Hp Pavilion ze5170 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 a 80gig IDE HDD installed so it shouldn't be a problem with not having the drivers. I am thinking that the issue is that there is only 512MB of RAM installed and maybe it doesn't have enough space in RAM to load everything that needs to be loaded since the minimum is stated as 1 gig of RAM.

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

that is the windows 7 recommended spec.. not the MINIMUM. I was told it could run with 256.. just would struggle.

I don't' think it's ur ram.
