My Vista PC crashed and I had to format my hard drive. Now I can't get Vista install to see the hd. It shows up in the bios. It also works for storage if I use it as a secondary drive with both Vista or XP installed on a master drive. Also I was able to get XP SP3 installed on the drive. The hd is an SATA. I have tried getting the updated drives for hd and the motherboard but I really don't know what I should be looking for. My goal is to dual boot with Vista on the hd in question witch is 250GB and XP on my other 30GB drive so I can use my camcorder that is not compatible with Vista but that is a secondary concern. I would just like to get vista to install on the 250GB hd if anyone can help me.
