Hi,

The problem is you have lost the drivers for the hard drives, you need to put the reboot disk in and run it so that all the drivers can be put back into the system.

But that is the reason your hard drives won't work there are no drivers/programs for them to work.

Hope this helped.

Thanks

Jason

How can Western Digital hard disk drives be recognized by third party USB external docking stations?


The format on a disk, will not be relevant of recognition via an USB connector. To connect a drive via USB, the computer must have the correct driver for the hardware you are connecting. Be sure you connect the HD coerce to the external harness and make sure it is supplied with the correct voltages.
When you connect a working system on the USB connector and the drive does not have a format, the computer will see that and ask you if it should format the drive.

Install Windows 7 or Windows Vista on a Pc Without DVD Media


For user who doesn’t want to waste a DVD disc to burn the ISO to physical media, and does not have WinPE (Windows PE) startup disc, here’s a workaround method to install Windows Vista and Windows 7 into physical computer’s hard disk drive or partition (volume) directly with ISO without writing or burning to disc. The without-disc installation method is useful especially during beta and RC period of new operating system in the making, where the new build and new versionis launching and publishing every now and then. This tutorial guide assumes that the new Windows 7 or Windows Vista will be installed and replaced the original existing operating system currently installed. The instructions can be modified slightly (mainly on hard disk partition used) to fit into need of readers who want to have a dual-boot, multi-boot, or simply just to upgrade install to new OS.

1. Install a virtual CD/DVD drive on existing Windows operating system.
2. Mount the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD ISO image using the virtual drive.
3. Copy all files inside the virtual CD/DVD drive mounted with the ISO into any folder on any partition or hard disk drive not going to be used to install the Windows OS. For example, copy into E:\Windows7.
4. Copy the bootmgr and boot folders nested inside the copied folder (i.e. \Windows7) to root directory of system boot drive, typically C:\.

Note: For Windows Vista, users may need to use this step: Copy the bootmgr folder from E:\Windows7 to C:\ root directory, copy E:\Windows7\boot\boot.sdi file to same folder in C:\boot folder, and then copy bootsect.exe from the E:\Windows7\boot\ folder to C:\ drive.

Note: boot folder in system boot drive is hidden system folder.
5. Create a new folder named sources under the C:\ root folder.
6. Copy the boot.win file inside \Windows7\sources folder to the source folder created in the system boot drive, normally C:\.
7. Open a command prompt as administrator.
8. Run the following command (change the C to your drive path letter if applicable):

C:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

For Windows Vista users who copied bootsect.exe to C:\ root folder, use the following command instead:

C:\bootsect.exe /nt60 C:

A successful message is the command completes successfully.
9. Change the name or label of the boot system partition local disk to BDCP or any name you prefer that easier to remember and type (in DOS command promot, use label command).
10. Restart the computer.
11. After booting up, the system will start the corresponding Windows installation process. Select the applicable language to install, time and currency format (regional settings locale) and keyboard or input method in the installation wizard dialog.
12. On the next screen, user will be presented with option to Install Windows. DO NOT press on Install Windows button, instead, click on Repair My Computer link on the bottom left corner.
13. In the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) System Recovery Options dialog window, click on Command Prompt to open a DOS Prompt window.
14. Run the format command to format the primary hard disk or partition to clean state:

format c: /q

Note: /q switch, which perform quick format can be omitted to full format. And if existing hard disk partition is of FAT32 filesystem format, use format c: /q /fs:ntfs to convert the file system to NTFS while formatting. Before formatting begins, the command may prompt for hard disk drive or partition label name, if so, enter accordingly (i.e. BDCP).
15. After format completed, start the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation process again by manually running the setup.exe located in the copied. Note that the setup.exe is not the one located on boot system drive which copied at later step, as the boot drive has been formatted. For example:

E:\Windows7\sources\setup.exe
16. Continue with installation procedures by following on-screen instructions as per normal practice.

Hi
You need to make the proper format, in order not to see this message.
Tell us please which OS you intend to install, what tool you used to format?

If your hard drive is 250 GB or less, you can format it using OnTrack Disk Manager,
For any hard disk capacity, you can use Windows CD to format.

Please tell us your results
Good Luck

My hard drive is 32ogb & i've made it to 5 partition.In one drive i've installed xp.then i tried to install windows7 on another drive after formating another drive. my problem is when i deleted one...


The only way to get that data back is by using a data recovery program. There are several different types of data recovery software out there. I've found one for you. Click here to go to the website. I haven't actually used this company's recovery software, so I don't guarantee or endorse them, so you may want to shop around before buying one.

COMPUTER HANGING PROBLEM.


There Can be various reasons my frnd first check out the CD you r using for installation is fine means nt scratched, then your CD rom, and at last boot your conputer from a floppy or dos and run Check disk if the hard drive chkdisk completes and it does nt show up that hard drive file sys is RAW, if it shows up then say your harddrive by bye, thats what i hav to do if such a hard drive shows up, and if you have guts then try using number of different software like test disk and HDD regenerator they may pull your hard drive 6 more months.
If that stuff does nt solve your prob please provide more detail and check your hardware to see if no pins etc are broken

USB problem


I had the same kind of problem with my 32GB Transcend USB Flash drive. I tried all the things I found in the internet (Apacer software, Registry fixes, Kingston software, HP Flash Disk software, you name it!) but nothing worked. Always I got Write protected error. Finally I found the program called MiniRMATool which solved the problem. Search MiniRMATool_XP2K_v1.rar in Google, run it and then you will be able to format your drive.
