Can't install vista


You need to find the drivers for the controller card.

Put the drivers onto a floppy drive. When the software asks for the drivers, use those drivers to let the OS know where to look for the hard drives.

I'm not sure if vista can load drivers off of a USB thumb drive. I havn't actually tried it yet.

Check Maxtor for the drivers you need.

Pc wont boot after vista update


You need to boot in safe mode then do a Windows System Restore to before you installed the updates. You can try redownloading and installing them and if the problem occurs again, just repeat the process.

No hard disk drives


wich message that show "there is no hard disk drives"

if in win XP
when the setup is loading driver it's will ask for SATA/RAID driver
you must press F6 then insert your SATA driver with USB floppy drive
or install XP with something like unattended installer with SATA driver included

or if it's shown in BIOS
probably your harddrive is broken
and you must replace it
or claim your warranty

note: ask your OEM

I have a toshiba satellite a205-5000 laptop it came with Vista, I want to put XP Pro instead, but it doesn't find the drive when you install. What do I need to do?


Hi, its because its a new laptop, you have a sata hard drive in the laptop which requires sata drivers to install older versions like windows xp, only problem is none of the companys are releasing the drivers to put xp on them, so im afraid your stuck with vista on it. due to the sata hard drive.

All the best

Unable to install driver software


There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee

Installation


The hard drive will automatically install you do not need to install a driver. I'm guessing this is a hard drive in addition to the hard drive that vista is running on? If so you probably need to format the hard drive to gain access to it. Click the windows button, and in the search field type compmgmt.msc and hit enter. Click continue when the UAC pops up. Now inside the Computer Management Console find and click on Storage and then Disk Management. On the bottom portion look for your new hard drive. Most likely it will have a black colored stripe and say UNALLOCATED. This will explain how to do the rest Yes that article is for XP but the one in Vista is pretty much the same.

Can't get file to open off old hard drive


Vista runs NTFS...if your old XP-based machine was not, try converting to it (you'll probably need to put back in the old machine to do it)...I don't think that's the problem though as my older XP-based computer was running NTFS & my Vista-based machine keeps dinging & asking to try USB 2.0...It is USB 2.0,I then tried the setup disk and it says I have to remove the current 2.0 driver already in the Vista (I don't think so!)...I'm thinking that a Vista driver (from whatever sourse) will be needed,,,lacking that I'll return mine to Best Buy and try another brand that supports Vista.

Nexxtech 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (NHDE35)


I'm not saying this will solve all problems, but it solved it for me. I am running Vista and got this to work following someone's instructions from another forum.

The slot in the enclosure that you plug the hard drive into has one set of holes fewer than the hard drive has pins. This means you can plug the hard drive in two ways "left" and "right" if you will. I had to plug my hard drive in so that the unused pins were farthest from the power cable that plugs into the hard drive.

Incidentally this made the screw holes line up better, too.
