More than likely you will need sata drivers for the hdd from the manufacturers website. Load them on a USB stick and during setup, it will ask you if you need to load additional drivers, then have it load up the drivers for the sata hdd off of your usb stick.

Best of luck

How can i reformat my windows vista


If you have the windows install disc, you can insert it, restart your computer and press any key when it tells you to. This will boot from the DVD and enter the Windows Setup. From there, it will show you a list of partitions on your hard drive before you install windows. Choose the partition on which Vista is installed and click "Delete" under advanced options. The partition will be formatted. If you want to install a fresh copy of Windows Vista, you can do so now. If not, exit windows setup and install whatever OS you want to use.
(Make sure you BACK UP your files before formatting - once you format the partition, you can NEVER get the files back.)

Activation error


The problem is Vista see's your second format as a second partition on the hard drive. It never gave you a clean format, and just internally added another partition. I solved the problem by formatting with a copy of XP and just stopping the process after the format was completed. Partition Magic works just as good to give you a clean format. Because you should format first with your older copy of windows, if you have more than one partition is the reason for the error. Vista see's your first copy as the older copy and just gives you a second partition.
Being actually in the second partition is why you get the error when you try to activate the actually second copy too. It actually trying to activate your copy but, the copy of the activated copy (your first copy), is still activated and is still on your hard drive and working.
The two NTSC formats for Xp and Vista are not the same, and is really why this error happens.

I downloaded a copy of windows vista and it expired,im trying to reinstall my hp windows xp recovery cd and its asking me for a password,cant remember if i ever did set up a password for this pc.how can...


Hello,

At what point is it asking for a password? Has the computer formatted the hard drive yet? It sounds like you might be going in to Recovery Console instead of installing a fresh copy of Windows.

What you want to do is press Enter at the first screen, agree to the license, and then format your hard drive. After that, it will go through the installation without asking for a password. Remember - you'll lose all your data when you format.
