Windows 7: HDD does not[ show up on Install!

Drivers and Downloads

Run/extract this on any machine. The driver will land in C:\Dell\R64013

The target machine (the Dell) will need to read these files from a floppy, DVD, HD or USB device.

The screen where your install is failing will have a link to grab the driver.

You can extract directly to a floppy with this Drivers and Downloads

I saw\

I figured you would want your docs and data on the bigger and the OS on the smaller. Right now my 32 bit win 7 is 14.3 gigs. My docs, music, etc are 80 gigs

The file(s) downloaded from Dell are compressed. You must extract them first.
