I can't get Vista to see a hard drive in a Toshiba Satellite Pro S300-11H. I can format the disk using the command prompt but the installation routine can't see it when it looks for it.
This hard drive has tested fine elsewhere but the laptop itself had a liquid spill a month or so ago. Is it possible that it has a hardware problem that is stopping the HD Controller from seeing the drive properly or is it just a software issue?
I have tried both AHCI and IDE settings in the BIOS without success.
I've seen this SATA problem with XP but not Vista.
