A Acer Aspire One netbook was brought in with a hdd error. When moving the data from the drive by connecting it externally to another machine the drive appeared to stick, however disk checks did not reveal any errors. Attempts to reinstall the OS resulted in HDD not found errors. Attempts to install Win 7 resulted in drives not being detected. A new HDD was installed with the same results. I am considering a slipstreamed CD with controller drivers but there appears to be no need for this.
Any ideas as to the reason will be greatly appreciated.
