Hi,I have a problem..I just tried to reformat and install windows XP home edition, and upon coming to the screen of "Repair" or "Install fresh copy" I received an error reporting:
Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit setup, press F3.
I have no idea why it would be saying this, I'm using the same computer now 30 seconds later than when I was trying to install windows.
Currently, I'm using Windows Professional x64 (this is the reason I want home, I hate not having any drivers for webcams, printers, and the like) Asus A8V-Deluxe motherboard and the harddrive in question is a Western Digital 160gb, 7200rpm, 8mb buffer SATA drive.
I've tried flashing the BIOS, making sure the OnChip SATA driver Boot ROM was enabled, I've took the comptuer apart, the connections are snug..
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
