When I try to instal a windows vista on my computer it says that I should load the hard drive's driver. I don't have such a thing and I can't find it anywhere. I have a Seagate ST3160812AS Barracuda 7200.9...


i was wondering are tying to install additional partition or you wanted a dual boot? or simple want to install WVista completely from scratch? normally what you need to do is hit F12 go to boot menu then your bottable CD should be on the CD/DVD drive already and re-format your hard drive...

simple enough to do. look for a software that does this thing like PartitionMagic. this will convert drives from fat32 to ntfs while running on your desktop.

Found usb device message


There are drivers available for your book on the WD website...They are meant to be used with win98...If you're using XP the drivers it's asking for isn't for the book but probably the USB hub...

Things you could do by order of priority:

1) Re-install the driver for USB hub
2) Install those 98 drivers (won't do any harm)
2) Repair Win XP
3) Re- format your PC (I know it's extreme...but as a last resort you may want to consider it)

Good luck !
