When i start to format,it says that it did not detect the hard drive


Answers :

Hi,
Can you please post some details about your pc. I mean the hard disk and the version of windows you trying to install. if the hard disk is sata it may require the command line driver which old version of windows doesnt have.
If this is the case then you have to slip stream your windows cd. download and include the drivers in the cd. it should pick it up.
