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

To install a Hard Disk Drive(HDD) into your desktop, take off the side panel of your case. Locate the SATA slots on it, they should be above the available Optical drive slots.
Put it in place, depending on your case you should either have a latch which locks it in place or you will have screws. After you've done, make sure that if you have another HDD in your PC, and you will not use this HDD for System files(C:\ drive), you will have to set the new one to Slave configuration. To do this you need to take out that jumper inside of the HDD(you can use some tweezers) and, according to what's printed on your HDD, move it up or down.
When you've done that, insert the SATA power supply cables from your Power Supply(PSU). After that use the SATA interface cables which came with your HDD and plug them into your Motherboard's SATA adapters. Locations of these vary depending on the motherboard so it's always best to refer to your Motherboard's manual to check locations.
After that start your PC and open up your BIOS/CMOS. Usually you press a key such as F2/F5/Esc on bootup. Configure your Motherboard to check for new drivers. After that save and exit and it will restart your PC. You should have installed your new HDD!
There are no such drivers....sata hard drives use windows drivers...if the computer is asking for drivers for a hard drive, then it is seeking drivers within windows...which means there could be corruption in those windows drivers that the WD HDD needs. Try going to windows update, let it load and check for updates and instead of hitting express, hit custom and look in the left hand pane for hardware updates and see if the drivers for a hard drive would be there. WD only offers Firmware updates and software for its HDD's.
dis connect the sata cable that attaches the sata hard drive to the pci card and then format c and re install with all the drivers you require for the pci card as well as motherboard drivers, network card drivers etc and then re attach the sata cable that way you dont get confused between which drives its showing if it manages to display the sata drive at boot up.
you have to enable the raid controller in the bios to see sata hdd nad have you pluged the power connector to hdd which is by the sata cable port then to your sata port in the motherboard, then install sata card drivers for your motherboard then reboot and after you have rebooted goto devise manager and see if it is reconised the driver if you have a yellow question mark then select it then right click then uninstall then click yes when removed driver goto the icon with spyglass and computer on and doubleclick on to search for new hardware once done reboot then your new hdd will be in the my computer icon.
