I've looked all over the internet for help on this one. I'm trying to install vista on my Vostro. I had to format it because it was full of viruses.
As Vista starts to install, it reaches a point and says that no hard drive was found.
At this point I could load a driver, but I can't seem to find out what driver that would be. The hard drive is made by Samsung and the model is HM251JI .
Samsung doesn't release this driver because the hard drive comes with it (apparently), but I'm assuming that it was erased during the format.
So now I'm stuck. I tried Intel Matrix Storage Manager - Notebooks, but when I copy the driver files to a CD, vista seems to recognize it, install the drivers, but then kicks me back to the "No hard drive found screen"
I'm really stuck here, any help would be appreciated.
