Windows Vista will not see Seagate 320 internal drive to format

I bought a 320GB Seagate (7200 RPM) opportunity and I'm trying to install Vista on it. The computer BIOS sees the drive, but loading Vista it does not show the HD as an external drive and ask drivers for it. The disk has been previously formatted for Mac.

Try to use SeaTools for Windows.  See also: Seagate Installation Assistance

Please note that the hard drive needs to be internally mounted inside the computer because Windows Vista will not install on an external hard drive.

    Hey Brian39

    If you change the motherboard that you normally have to reinstall vista

    your hard drive if you ever reinstalled vista contains the drivers for the old motherboard etc.

    and if vista is pre-installed you can not put the motherboard unless you do so in collaboration with the computer manufacturer

    If a retail license, you can change the motherboard

    but you will normally always reinstall vista for reasons

  • Windows Vista will not download

    Help. My HP G50 will start but the Windows Vista will not download. I pressed the keys F 10 and 11 F. The memory is good. I backed up my files using the F 11 Save function. I tried to go back to an earlier date using System Restore, no results. Can reset the computer by default, there is work in the F 11 key and then recover my files. Do I need a recovery disk?

    Thanks for the reply. I made the. Backup of files Wizard. At the end she asks 'Please insert the USB key' - I suppose to download files on an external drive. Well I bought an external drive and connect it to the USB port, nothing happens. He said only: "no available drive. What should I do now. I did all the steps, according to HP said on their site of troubleshooting online and this is the last step. I will not buy an HP again. A friend recommends a Sony.

    I have a Satellite L30-105 (PSL33E) with windows Vista. Windows Vista does not recognize the DVD - ram. BIOS recognize DVD-ram. I tried to download the drivers for the DVD-ram, but they are not on the side of Toshiba.

    Who can help me to get the right driver or learn more? Problems with the carpet * a DVD-ram uj-850 s ATA device and windows Vista.

    Hello

    The CD/DVD drive needs no special drivers!
    Vista includes a Microsoft driver that works with all CURIOUS s (CD/DVD drives)

    Simply said, the Vista should recognize the drive without any problems.

    A few questions; did you get any error messages? What is the status of Device Manager? Do you see yellow exclamation points?

    There is an old way to correct a similar drive problem. It worked on XP then try it on Vista OS.
    It of necessary to update the registry entry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    1. click on the start menu.
    2. If it is a Vista machine in the search box type regedit without quotes.
    3. look for the registry key mentioned above.
    4. in the right panel you'll see something along the lines of UpperFilter and UpperFilter you want to click on each key filter and tap on delete. Click Yes when asked to confirm if you want to delete the key.
    5. restart Windows.

  • Windows Vista will not start and cannot recover

    I have a desktop PC HP Compaq Presario, which has about 2 years. The problem started when Windows Vista was not able to start. It would load up on the "COMPAQ" screen and then it would just go to a slider black white screen with a flashing white light on the top left. Now that I've seen a lot of discussions with this similar problem, but it seems that people would rather not reformat in order to lose any important data. But in my situation, I have some important data on my computer so reformatting would be fine, except...

    -Recovery system won't work. I insert the 1 system recovery disk, all files loading correctly, it allows me to choose if I want to reset the computer to factory settings, I click Yes and it finishes the reformatting step. But then the problem comes when I insert disc 2, original content relocation step. It fills up to 10-16% and then I get a blue screen of death STOP: 0 x 00008086. I tried SEVERAL times and the same thing happens.

    -The next thing I tried to do is to fix the computer via a copy burned Windows Startup Repair. Loads everything up, I spent the page where I choose my language, currency, etc. The problem comes when I get to the System Recovery Options. There is no listed BONES and a box appears and says "Searching for Windows installations", and then it stalls just on this pop up. This problem is quite recent, because before there is no pop up and there is simply no OS listed, so I still could not repair or restore in any case.

    -Before, when I was able to go into the advanced options on the Startup Repair disk (when he was not of "searching for Windows installations" pop up to stall on), I'd go to the command prompt in attempt to chkdsk/r C:. All bad sectors or groups or something else would be fixed, and then he would hold to step 5 of 5 when checking free space.

    -In addition, I tried to make a diagnosis of memory via the Startup Repair tool. That's what I get:

    File: \boot\memtest.exe

    Status: 0xc000000f

    Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt


    Furthermore, I cleaned my computer, it is now almost completely free of dust. In addition, I can't get into the BIOS, I can't get into safe mode, and now I can't have in the command line

    Hello

    If you are unable to enter the BIOS and all the other problems, you have hardware problems
    and need the help of a real store of the computer (no leeks and glances at a Best Buy or any other
    Department stores) or Support of HP/Compaq.

  • Windows Vista will not install updates.

    I came across Best Buy, bought the first thing I have seen & to the left. It's just the small things. My main PC is myPC music recording studio (never online) so for my this, that I bought... I don't care.

    a m9402f 7.00 GB 64-bit system quad-core 2.30 Ghz procesor.  On the 626 GB on the 'C' drive, I only used GB 129.  I don't know why I've bothered w/a Seagate external extreem HD 1000GO?  Works great, I've never used one before Vista but works very well.

    Thus, recent updates do not keep install .  What's up with the updates? What is happening with this? Should I just go buy Windows 7?  I spend hours looking for solutions and never ask for help, but this time I am so tired so I'm going to ask.  Below are updates that keep a failure... Notice they're on SP2 * and IE8. My PC alread had installed SP2.  I tried an update for this.  I have switch from IE 7 to 8. I don't see any other reasons.

    Maybe I'm missing something?

  • Windows Vista will not complete installation on SATA hard drive

    I tried to install Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit on a new desktop computer Acer X 1200 (less than 1 year).  Vista recognizes the drive, format and copy all the files on the disk installation.  Then restarts, is preparing to launch for the first time and get to the part where it says installation finished and hangs there.  The green progress bar does not move and it hangs indefinitely.  The hard drive is SATA and I put a new disc in hard, but exactly the same thing happened.  The motherboard has no IDE port on it and there is no option in the BIOS for the IDE emulation.  At this point I think the motherboard is bad, but I am working also on a laptop HP 1 year with SATA hard drive that does exactly the same thing.  The two systems are pre-installed with Vista Home Premium.  The two systems see the hard drive, but will not complete installation.  I even tried to run the WD Tools Data Lifeguard before installation with no luck at all.  There is no error message or error code, just of hangs and end no installation.  You have any suggestions for this?  Thank you.

    What was my problem I bought the equipment... like motherboard, memory, cpu, and video

    Vista would not be install.would blow on the end of the installation so I tried to put it natively and it worked!
