OSNN Senior Addict
ok i can get to the windows set up screen that looks like this
pic link
but when i hit enter instead of going to this screen screenshot like im supposed to i end up at a blue screen that says this

"Setup didnt find any hard disk drives installed in your computer

Make sure any hard disk drivers are powerd on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program."

Now i know my Hard drive is connected right since it shows up in the boot up tests and also in the BIOS, so im not sure what windows problem is any tips on how to solve it

i got it OEM so no software with it. Also its on a computer without any OS yet. Is there a way to run software on it before i have a OS or would i have to switch it over to this computer and hope i dont screw anything up?

I found the data lifeguard program to format it but will i have to put it on this comp? i really dont want to screw this one up its all i have left :(

Well, you've obviously got internet access so download the software from the manufacturer's website. Software works off a bootdisk so you're not meant to have an OS. Follow the instructions and you won't screw up. :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
