You have to use N-lite program, so you will burn a windows cd INCLUDING the hard disk's driver. This is what N-lite usually does. after trying installation with the new win cd, you'll se results

I`ve installed a 1 TB hard drive on the Acer L320 and had the same problem.
It`s in BIOS as a 1TB drive, so should install on the Acer.
NO , In Vista it can`t see he drive.
Hack which works !!!!!
Partition the drive first on a second computer.
The First partition last than 400 GB ? , I only use 100 GB for my first partition.

Well, detecting the hard disk and seeing the partition are two completely different things. A partition is a portion of your disk that has been set aside from the rest of your hd in the file allocation table. You must create a partition (using the tool included in the install disk) to be able to install the operating system on the hard drive.
