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.
