My window 7 doesn't detect 2nd HD (seagate cheetah st173404). I can see it list in Bio/advance setup/hard disk drives. But I can't see it in boot and also can't browse it in window 7 disk management....


If the drive is not being detected properly then ether the SATA port you have the drive connected to does not support the drive or you need to install updated SATA drivers for your motherboard to fully see the drive. I myself ran into this the other day when I upgraded the hard drive in my computer.

If you are not sure if it is supported and/or having trouble finding drivers let me know the make and model of your motherboard.

HDD cannot be detected after reformatting

Ok, unfortunately, even though, you had two partitions they were both on the same Physical drive, now you cannot "Format & Partition" without breaking the install, as the Win 7 is the "Boss" and when you formatted you have wiped out all you boot track information, You maybe have a shot, if you get a Win 7 install disk, and boot off of it, then ask it to repair your "Boot Sector" this may allow you to Boot into Win 7,if you are lucky. Then you can use as normal. But if you cannot do that, you will have to boot from a Win 7 or Vista or whatever OS you wish to install,and follow the instructions, and do a complete reinstall of the OS. If you wish more than one partition, in the setup, it allows you to choose the size of your drive, so simply do all that, at that time.

The Speech Component isn't working but the

Ok I have a solution for my laptop. I have Laptop with realtek HD Audio and Windows 7. Rosetta stone did detect the integrated microphone at first, but then nothing helped to do this again. So I decided to upgrade audio drivers. First installer removed old drivers and asked for reboot. I rebooted and DID NOT INSTALLED DRIVERS. Windows installed its native drivers and here we go. I have been learning Japanese for two days already :)
So the solution for windows 7 is:
1. Remove your audio drivers
2. Reboot
3. Wait until windows install its own drivers.
4. Learn languages.

Windows Media Center can't detect a TV signal from a Sabrent card

If you have hd card, it might be your cable company not providing hd signal. If you have analog card, and have HD signal that will cause it too.

I want to install RHEL3.0 in SATA DeskStart HD using MSI SATA MB, but not detecting at OS installation time. HOW i can detect, Pls help me!!!!

You need to create a space for which to install Linux. That likely means resizing Windows. Partition Magic is a good Windows utility to accomplish this, although there is a Linux version called Gaprtedthat will do essentially the same thing. You download the Gparted live cd, burn to disk, and run it from your computer. You must go into "setup" and set your Bios to boot from CDROM before booting the Hard Drive. Once booted, follow the on screen instructions. Resize Windows, (but NOT before a thorough defrag of your Windows drive), and create a "blank space" for Linux. Afterward, boot your Linux distro, (RedHat 9 was a great distro, but a newer version of a Red Hat based distro would serve you better, sayCentOS or Fedora Core), and follow the online instructions. Good Luck!
