I am having problems with a newly installed Toshiba MK5061GSYN 2.5 inch 500GB  SATA hard drive. While I understand that I need a driver for this new hard drive,to install the operating system, I am not sure how to go about this? The Windows install disk will only recognise certain file types and the Controllers that I have found seem to be in exe format. I am also not sure what I have to look for. The sony product download page is not very helpful.

The error message that I get form the Windows 7 install disk is
Windows cannot be installed to the disk. This computor's hardware may not be support booting to this disk. Ensure that the disks controller is enabled in the computor's BIOS munu.

    Looks like I inadvertently solved my problem by resetting the bios to factory default. Windows is installing. finally.
