I read here that laptops may not have enough power and this might be the problem if the light is not showing

Not recognised windows vista


You have to go to control panel, adminstrative tools, storage and initialize the drive. However the way it sounds, the drive might have an issue, could be the cable or the usb port

Have a toshiba sattelite dont know what number. cannot do anything on it. it says that there is no bootable device and to install the bootable disc in which i do not have. how can i get my laptop to work...


Firstly, when the laptop powers up, look for a message on the screen giving you options to press one or more function keys (F1 to F12) to access the bios or enter the system recovery mode. Use the button to access the BIOS SETUP and once in the bios setup, check that it recognises the hard disk (if one is present). If there is no hard disk then check that one is actually in the laptop by opening the hard drive cover on the bottom of the laptop.
Assuming the hardrive is present and is shown in the bios, reboot the laptop and access the RECOVERY mode if possible. There may be a recovery partition on the hard disk which will allow you to recover the operating system to factory default.
If there is no recovery partition then you will need to get hold of a Windows Vista installation disk. You may be able to borrow one from a friend if you do not want to buy one.
Look on the bottom for a Windows Vista label. This label should have a key on it which can be used to activate Windows Vista if required.
If the bios does not show your hard disk or the hard disk is not present in your laptop then you will need to buy a replacement hard disk.

Sata drive is not recognized by os during new install


When installing XP or Vista you get the option to load third party drivers for unknown devices. I think it's F6 just after the start of any version of Windows, once you press this you will have to supply the drivers for the Windows installation. This will make Windows recognise the hdd from then on.

My internal hard drive is recognised as removable???


Your problem is Vista. It is the pits and by far the worst modern OS, second only to Windows Me. (Millenium Edition).

You need to start at the beginning. Go into DOS, use FDISK to Format the Drive, Go to BIOS and Assign it as the main disk. Disconnect any other HDs if you have them. Reinstall Windows 7 Pro if you can find a copy.

However, did you try this?

Hard disk Recognition problem


U are actually facing the same problem as "jackwilkinso". As my previous post: Windows XP does not come out to support SATA hard drive, because inside do not inclued the SATA driver, that why u cannot see the harddisk during the setup. What u can do is try to install the SATA supported OS like Windows Vista or Windows 7, or maybe can "forcely" put in the SATA driver in ur Windows XP setup CD.
