    Unless the robot can't understand you for some reason and you have to repeat the number they give you 3x times, only to have to repeat again to the person you get in contact with xD

    Whats the message you got

    1 - Does the computer pick the drive up in BIOS
    2 - Are the cables / jumpers connected in right place and connected right way around

    If you need a temporary dumping ground I can give you a FTP for my site if needed. There's 160gb hdd space dedicated for it so plenty room

    I received the message when I was trying to install my new OS. It said that it could not install it because it was not hooked up to the hard drive.

    SATA Connector


    IDE Connector

    Which one of those do you use to connect your motherboard?

    Now it's IDE, how is it setup

    1 - Are the jumpers set in the master poisition
    2 - Have oyu got the IDE cable at furthest ends connected to the motherboard / hdd

    In the pic above the blue connector connects to IDE on your motherboard, and the black connector (furthest) should be connected to HDD

    BTW - With regards to the error message please give the EXACT error as it helps to identify the problem. Assuming your hard drive isn't fucked you most likely have the jumpers or IDE in wrong positions. Also try using another install CD if you can incase it's bad

    Sorry, I'm retarded.

    The CD I put in was a reinstallation disk, not an installation disk
