*If you have access to another computer with a cd burner*
One way is to download the universal boot cd, boot a linux rescue disk image from it and use fdisk to remove all partitions.
This way the disk will be seen by windows setup again.
This is a silly bug in windows setup i've discovered a long time ago. When it does not understand the partitions on a disc it just hangs during the setup screen.
Download the iso image from http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html then burn the iso image to a blank cd. Put it in your dead machine's cd drive and boot from it. Then choose one of the linux boot options.
When linux is up and running type fdisk ENTER
Then press p and a list of partitions comes up
Press d (delete) and then the number you see after /dev/hda etc.
Do this for every partition you see listed or just for
the first if there is data on the second/third/etc..
Press w (write) q (quit) and reboot with the windows cd in place.
p.s. This does irreversably remove
partitions and data on the disk!

Hi Tony. As you are using a SATA hard disk then I would firstly check a few settings, this involves loading the computer BIOS. When you see the computer first turn on, you should be prompted to press "F2" to enter the BIOS screen.
From here select "Enter BIOS SETUP UTILITY" then "Advanced screen" and finally "IDE Configuration"
Verify that 1) Onboard IDE Controller is set to "Enabled"
and 2) “SATA Operation Mode” is set to "[non-RAID]"
Once you have done this, you should see the HDD listed beside SATA 1 or SATA 2 (depending on which port you plugged the hd in to) then press F10 to save and exit. The computer will now start up as normal.
If you have more trouble after checking these settings, please write us again.
Hope this helps

actually telephone numbers are not available through this service...perhaps you will consider a premium or chat investment of your resources.

No I do not think there is unfortunaely. Contact Maxtor and ask if they are going to support it under Windows 7?
