Dear Techsan 1. Try updating your pc BIOS(only if you know how to). 2. Try disconnecting all other drives, eg. cd, dvd, fdd, usb devices and try install now.

A bad/faulty lead can lead to a computer not recognizing a hard drive and any other connected devices
One bad lead can cause a computer lots of problems
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to your hard drive

Hard drive problem

It's possible that your computer's motherboard is "old", and it only supports a maximum of 32GB per disk-drive.

Buy a new 80GB or 160GB disk-drive, and copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

Partision prblem

This is because an 80GB hard drive only has 75GB inside it will not be exact because of the way hard drive manufacturers compute the size. 80GB by name but only 75GB in real hard drive space. much like a if you have a flash drive or a portable uSB you will notice this also.

External hard drive can not be read by the computer

The hard drive was originally formatted for a PC and I was using it with Mac products. I had to delete all the information on the hard drive so that I could reformat the external hard drive to work with my Macbook Pro.

Seagate 160 gb capacity problem

the harddrive size is in another measurement system and the actual size of the drive is exactly what you are seeing 152.

here you can see how my disks show
894a905.jpg 160GB disk - 152,66GB
1000GB disk - 931.51GB

that is correct.

Hard disk not detected

The problem is that u have done partitions for 160 GB harddisk, so do all the partitions of 40 GB or less than that.
