Hello, first post here
Any help will be appreciated
I had recent problems with my computer, so I was forced to do a full re-install of vista. I rebooted my computer, booted up the vista home premium x64 cd, and when I got to the screen where I had to choose a hard drive to install vista on, I ran into a problem. First, I tried to format the drive, wanting a clean restart, and got an error saying vista could not format the partition on disk 0( I have 1 hardrive with no partitions) The drive was cleared though, it updated the screen saying that it had 1000gb/1000gb free. I figured all was well. So I continued and tried to install vista and got an error saying that "Windows could not format a partition on disk 0. The error occured while preparing the partition slected for installation". Setup then immediatly stopped. I tired forming new partitions, deleting the partitions, but nothing helped. I tried the load drivers option at the hardrive select screen and tried every disc that came with my computer, but it kept saying it cant find the driver. I read on the microsoft website that I might need to provide the correct drivers for the hard disk controller. But I cant find it. I have a hitachi Ultrastar A7K1000 SATA hardrive model no HUA721010KLA330. I checked their website and it says they are not offering drivers anymore. I now have a completely empty hardrive and I cant install vista. I checked elsewhere I cant find any help.
Whoever can help me will be my savior.
