Almost ever new system that requires a sata driver actually requires a controller driver. most new systems will also boot from USB. so if you have no floppy drive simply copy the files to a usb.
you can get the sata drivers from Maxtor or ATI. they are all the same... just make sure you get the XP or Vista drivers and 32b or 64b.
If you can not find you can email and ask me I can zip and email to you.

Blue 500 GB not recognized by Sony Vaio laptop


Hello, Assuming the drive works and the laptop's usb port is good then the problem could reside in a couple of areas.. 1. The file system of the Blue hard drive may not be recognized by windows on your Vaio, this is most likely due to the fact its was formatted with a Mac (and therefore probably using HFS). If this is the case and you need to read the contents of the disk then you can install mediafour's macdrive (http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive) this will allow your vaio to read the mac disk. It is free for 5-days so if you just need to access some files you can do this at no cost. 2. The drive may not have been partitioned and formatted yet, in which case for windows XP follow this microsoft guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348 and for windows 7 follow this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-and-format-a-hard-disk-partition
Hope this helps

How to replace the Hard Drive?


1. First, back up your critical files (don't forget your Outlook .PST archive) to optical discs, an external drive, or online storage.
2. Examine data and power connections (SATA or IDE, depending on the drive), a power adapter cable (with some SATA drives), and screws.
116hdrive2a.jpg116hdrive2b.jpg 3. Mount and connect the drive
When installing SATA drives, jumper settings usually aren't an issue. That's not true of IDE, where a jumper indicates whether a drive is a primary ("master") or secondary ("slave") drive. Check its documentation for the proper setting
4. Configure the BIOS, Next, boot into your PC's BIOS-setup utility to verify that it recognizes the new drive and positions it correctly in the drive hierarchy. (Check your PC's startup screen to determine which key launches the utility.) If the utility lets you select the boot order, give your intended boot drive priority over any other hard drive
Save changes and exit the utility. Your PC will reboot
5. Partition and format your hard drive, Click Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management, and choose Disk Management from the tree at left. Your new drive should appear, with a black bar indicating it isn't partitioned. Right-click the bar, and choose New Partition to launch the New Partition wizard. Click Next, and check that Primary Partition is selected; click Next again, to the Specify Partition Size screen (don't change the partition size in the "Partition size in MB" field); and click Next to advance to another screen, on which "Assign the following drive letter" should be selected. Click Next yet again (to the Format Partition screen), and ensure that "Format this partition with the following settings" is selected and that the "File system" drop-down reads "NTFS." Click Next a final time, hit Finish, and formatting begins.

Good Luck Delgado...

XP, Vista and Win7 recognize this HDD as an external HDD but I can not see it in Windows Explorer.It shows up in the bar(down right) as external HDD is connected.HDD= WD Scorpio Blue(1 TB). Model=...


You'll need to check and see if the disk is formatted and recognized as a logical disk. To do this, Go to Start, and locate the Run option, and type in diskmgmt.msc or you can go to My Computer, right-click it and select "Manage" from the popup menu. Then, at the bottom of the list to the left, you'll see the Disk Management submenu.
Once you're in the Disk Management applet, click on the WD from the list of available hard drives from the list, and see if the partition is recognized as formated. If it's not formated you may need to format it. If the disk is recognized as RAW disk, then you'll need to first create an extended partition and then format it with NTFS file system. REMEMBER, if you can access the drive from another computer and it's recognized properly in Explorer, then formating it will erase all data on the disk. But if you never used it before (i.e you dont have any data on it) then you can go ahead with the formatting, which should solve your problem if it's a software issue.
If you heard your disk clicking for a while in the past, and you had problems with it: slow reading of files, sluggish in copying files etc. then your hard drive may be mechanically failing and in this case there's nothing you can do to save it. If this is the case and you still have warranty, return the disk to where you bought it from, and ask for a replacement.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


its very simple....
enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

Stop:0x0000007B tried to boot in all modes..we go to blue screen with stop: cannot get a command prompt either


Issue : Blue screen with Error0x0000007B
Solution
I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

The above error comes if the boot volume is corrupted and cannot be initiated by Windows XP. or You are installing Windows XP on a mirrored boot partition that was created by Microsoft Windows NT 4.0.

To completely resolve your issue i think you have to reinstall the OS.
Have to format the Hard drive

requirement
the OS - XP Home / Premium Installation CD





Disk formatting is the initial part of the process for preparing a hard disk or other storage medium for its first use. The disk formatting includes setting up an empty file system. A disk formatting may setup multiple file systems by formatting partitions for each file system.

Do you see the FDD been read after the F6 key?

Do not go with the quick formatting option.
Try without partitioning the driver and proceed with the installation.

I have a new hard drive and no operating system for my laptop


well you donot need special programs you can use the same operating system to format, partition and load your operating system, after you connect your harddrive to your board go to setup Bios and look for the hardware that installed on your chip and you will see if your hardrive is recognized, After that load your operating system cd on your dvd rom and let the pc boot to that dvd drive, here the you will start loading the operating system, so you have to format, partition and then install windows, Try windows vista will make it easy for you.
