I would recommend you check the website for the latest "bios" (also known as firmware) for the motherboard. Or, see their support to verify you can install a drive this large. Check the Logical Block Addressing (lba) and make sure your bios has it enabled. Older bio's offer several options ..If you need further help, contact us at http://techrxgb.com If you find this helpful, please give me a hands up

Driver wont auto download


The model number you are referencing is an 1TB Internal SATA Hard Drive and does not require drivers to install and function. Did you install it in a external drive enclosure? Can you explain better what you are trying to do?

If the operating system can't format the hard drive then the chances are that the drive is either failing or Failed.

Hi, I have problem here. I just bought Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C. It works fine at first, but one day latter some clicking noise appear. It detected in BIOS, but then make my Windows take a very long time...


The short answer is the drive is having trouble calibrating itself, and should be sent back under warranty for replacement.
There are things you could try to recover the unit, but why risk voiding the warranty only to wind up with a questionable drive afterward?

Please try attaching the desktar at a different cable aside from the master, use another cable,attaching it to another IDE cable. In short, dont have the WD and the deskstar on one IDE ribbon.

Sata Hard Drive not detected on Bios


Hi,

When istalling th O/S the system will ask you to press F2 to install the SATA drivers, if you do not press this and install the SATA drivers for the HDD, the system will not read the drive,

Re-install the O/S and watch (( you get 3 seconds to choose it ))

Press F2 when it asks you
(( are you installing SATA HDD ))

Stick the driver in at this point
(( you should have a disc with drivers on it that came with it ))

Finish the install, the system will then read from the SATA drive,

It's because usually the system is looking for a IDE drive.

Your using SATA, so you need to tell the system, that this is a SATA drive,

You will be good to go then

Regards
Richard.
