Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Momentus 750 > Diskpart Clean All : did not work

I had no joy with this fix. I've got a new Seagate momentus 750 that Windows 7 tells me it cannot install on hardware. I have installed Fedora 14 and Ubuntu 10.10 on the 750 without issue. On a Windows 7 install it goes through all the motions and after the first OS reboot (Completing installation) ... it comes back with "Cannot install on this Hardware". I slap the 500GB back into the machine and here I am looking for a solution. I wish Windows 7 would spit out a reason for the failure. The error screen doesn't tell me squat. The diskpart clean all took 7 hours to run and did not do the trick. Any other hints?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thought I would let everyone know. I downloaded drivers for the ICH9 SATA Chipset (the PRE-OS Driver) and it installed. I did not have this issue with the 500GB. Very strange... the drivers worked and solved the issue ... I can't complain. Thanks. Walt
