Windows 7 and Laptop Question

    Hey huys,

    Have been trying to install windows seven on an IBM R50 but its having none of it, this is the windows 7 fresh install, It is saying that it cannot detect any hard drive

    Any Ideas?

    any one with a decent idea?

    i got a way round this, i took the hard drive out and put it in another laptop and installed it there, then put it back in the other laptop to finish it and it works a treat, dont worry about drivers as once its finish it will connect to the internet and get the drivers it needs, good luck

    or if it is a sata drive put it in your pc and install

    What's the Type number of your laptop please?

    What's the Type number of your laptop please?

    type number??

    Look on back. Usually a 7 digit number that identifies the exact spec and should allow me to pin point the correct SATA controller drivers.

    Just put windows 7 on ours ( well huns did )
    Your laptop has pent 1.4g 512 ram ?
    Quite an old laptop hun? 2004 edition?

    Before u tried installing u should have got the windows 7 upgrade advisor, run it on your old OS to see if your laptop could take windows 7...
