Question about Toshiba Satellite A45-S1202 Notebook
This can happen if the drive is corrupted, or the drivers for the drive are not loaded in the BIOS of the machine. The first is much more likely.
Try going to a local computer store and purchasing a new 2.5" hard drive. The amount of space is your choice. There is usually some screws on the bottom of laptops holding down a door that houses the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive, then remove the hard drive caddy. Attach the caddy to the new hard drive and insert it into the computer. Try installing again. If you can't find the hard drive door, consult the user's manual.
There could be a rare chance that the motherboard of the computer is compromised if the new drive is not found either. Consult a local computer shop if that is the case. You may need to replace the motherboard.
