Vista install Prob RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot even get started for some reason.


    "Windows cannot be installed to this. The disk may fail sone. If other hard disk are avilable

    Install windows to another location."


     Say that to all my drives.

     i created a Clean Primary drive just for this and was going to dual boot. but cant even start the install .

     thank you.

  • 1. Go to BIOS setup. Disable all SMART capability for all drives one by one.

    2. Ensure the HDD controller is setup for correct mode you desire like RAID, AHCI, IDE/PATA.

    3. Save and Reboot
