I am trying to install a fresh copy of windows vist home premium (not upgrade) onto a new seagate SATA drive - the computer is an ACER ASPIRE 5100
I went into bios to change it to boot from the cd drive....everthing went fine until the hard drive section in setup popped up...
It said that It couldn't find the hard drive and something like I needed to install drivers for the hard driver (probably the controller though I would guess)
Anway the seagate site says the vista should have the drivers neccessary for the HD
IF it is the controller driver for the HDD - I went on the Acer site and couln't find anything that would relate to that driver.
It is driving me a bit nuts - I though I would be able to buy the vista op sys and a new hard drive and just be able to get it done.
Has anyone else experianced this or have some kind of resolution.
Thanks in advance.
