Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Acer Extensa 4620z, i can't load the OS, i've tried with XP and Win7 and there's an error, i tried to change the setings in BIOS, but there's not any option to change anything about the SATA or somthing about the HDD. I don't know wath to do, the HDD is already formated. I think that maybe i need some drivers to make the computer to recognize the HDD.

Yes quite right.. when u start the install process I'm sure you noticed that it asked you to press F6 to install any 3rd party RAID / Sata drivers.. these can be downloaded from the manufactures web site..

what concerns me is that windows 7 Ultimate has these drivers built in!!! did u try windows 7 ultimate ???? not the OEM version that ships with systems ,, use a full version..

also DO a full format not a quick format.. when win 7 or xp instillation boots,, delete all partitions and do a full format..
if that fails u need to replace the hardrive,, A dead harddrive will give the same error!!!

Install xp on acer extensa 4220 hard disk not detected


Acer Extensa supports two model of HDD installation 1) AHCI and 2) SATA.

Windows Vista get installs on both but for Windows XP you need to Enable SATA option.

For that go into Bios, Change option of Hard Disk from AHCI to SATA. After that you can install both XP as well as Vista.

Try it, and mail me update: ansari.yasser@gmail.com
