Is this USB- attached external drive?

If not, there shouldn't be anything to install.

Did you check in Disk Management to see if the drive needs to be partitioned and formatted (or "initialized")?

If this is a new internal HDD

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to my hard disk is not worki ...

You need to format it before you can use it. Formatting Maps the Drive so that it can write data to it and find it again.

So assuming that you have some form of Windows installed here open the Drive Management by opening the Control Panel then the Administrator Tools then Computer Management.

When the new Windows Opens left click on Drive Management and when that opens select the New Drive that you added and right Click on it. If you are prompted to Prepare the Drive follow the prompts, however if you are not given any prompts right click on the HDD and left click on Format from the Drop Down Menu. Follow the prompts and it's ready to use.
