I have a Averatec 6200 series IDE Hard drive and The hard drive Crashed, so I thought,, I got a new Hard drive and put it in and ran My recovery cd and would not work,, so I went In to the Bio and it said No hard drive found,, so I went and get another one,, ( new ),, checked the Bio and it said the hard drive but said 0mb Available and it still won't install Windows cause it says No Hard drive found.. Can you help??

Thanks,

Ray

Hello rfilessr,

Have you tried going to BIOS setup and changing the disk controller setting from AHCI to IDE mode prior to try to install the disk? Please, come back with the results.
Also you could find some info at Microsoft knowledge base here:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows?ui=en-US&rs=en-001&ad=US

Hope this helps.

Hi again,

If you're comfortable using the command line, you can check a variety of motherboard and hardware stats using the handy Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC)
Just type that command in Command prompt: wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

Good luck.
