Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I will show a trick about how to install an operation system when you have an erased sata Hdd ..and cause of the lack of a raid driver it is blocking the boot and not let you boot even from cd ...
Insert the boot-able installation cd ...choose to boot first from cd ..and to trick the computer just remove the power supply from the Sata Hdd ...This way you will make it go on and boot from cd ...Keep in mind that the primary drivers and files that are loaded when the installation starts ..are not stored on the hdd..so it will not see the drive missing ...after it starts to load files...and before getting to the agreement ..just plug the supply back to the Hdd.. in this point the primary drivers will be already loaded ..and the computer it is already seeing the hard drive ...and will continue the installation like on any other one without any problems...
Good Luck !
