150gb sata formated hdd not recongized by lenovo 3000 n200

My new NB has conflict w/xpp driver for duel pcmcia aircard & express card slot. Rather than mess up the existing working hdd, I'm trying to load the reformatted sata hdd below. the new xph version, doesn't format and partition the hdd, and after loading some drivers, pops up a message "there is no hdd found on this computer" press F3 to terminate this install..

close .. mine is Toshiba MK1637GSX 150gb 5400rpm sata hdd I reformated for lenovo 3000 n200, 1gb, dual 1.73ghz

    Not sure what you are saying.
    1. The new formatted hdd only boots to "NTLDR is missing".

    I used an external sata usb cable device for using external hdd with usb 2.o ports.. I connected the hdd to it and plugged it into deskbox also running xph with sata drives. opened win exp, clicked on quick format, dropped a file on it, it added it ok, for verification

    were you after ntfs? that was used.

    The real issue is the driver issue conflict for the express slot adapter for pcmcia cards,. If that can be resolved, then I don't need to setup a new xp hdd.

    I can put the orig hdd back in the nb and try what you want?

    I originally installed the hdd in the nb & tried to format it, nothing worked, everything was greyed out. So I tried to format it with the usb device .. which works great on file xfrs.

    Then I installed the formatted hdd in the nb drive bay & tried to do xp install. it never repartitioned the hdd, it just was indicating it was loading drivers, after a while, it popped up the message, no hdd were found on the nb computer!

    whats next.

    and let's keep only one of those cards for now, and blend the other one, in , after you're back up and running, ok?

    Patrick Michaels May 25, 2008 was this formatted?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels May 25, 2008, you have the HD on a usb? that is the least likely way to have it'll need to mainline that drive to the onboard bus, not through a usb connection.

Avast! BART CD vs Lenovo 3000 n200

You will likely have to go through and create another boot disk, but this time, include the drivers that are going to be needed for SATA and your NIC. I have used an older version, but you should be able to include the drivers, and auto install / config then reburn the CD.

Verizon Wireless PC 5750 air car work in a HP Pavillion

No because the Aircard PC5750 is a PCMCIA slot card, and your laptop has a Next Gen Express Card/ 54 Slot. The Express card slot is smaller than the PCMCIA slot. That makes the PC5750 incompatible.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
