Question about Western Digital Scorpio WD1600BEVS 160 GB IDE Hard Drive
My hard disk failed and I have installed a new western digital 1600bevs. Now when I go through re-installing windows vista on my dell laptop vostro 1700 it seems to go through the configuration stages ok but then hangs.
If I then try to boot from safe mode it runs the script of loading files and then says please wait - nothing ever happens after this.
Startup repair function does similar running for hours and finding nothing wrong - but it never seems to complete
I don't know how old is your laptop I know a lot of people they try to install larger hard drive but you have to check if your laptop or PC will see that hard drive some it will automatic will will do partition like for the original hard drive capacity and the rest will be hidden. Research your laptop capabilities up to how many gigs can operate. click start, click control panel, click administrator tools, on the left side you will see disk management, click disk management, and you will see the C: drive and will show how many gig and the rest will be not format and partition. I hope this will solve your problem. You can format the rest of the hard drive and rename and asign D: or H.
