Setting up new hard drive

by TheChas In reply to Setting up new hard drive

When you use the Western Digital tools to format your drive, you need to follow a specific sequence to boot from any device other than the Hard drive.

The last time I used the tools, they were using Easy-Bios.

What had to be done, was to boot up, and press the key to enter easy bios setup.
Then, you can select the option to boot from an alternate device.

If you did not do this when you installed Windows, it cannot see your drive properly.

Re-run the Data-lifeguard tools, and reviewthe help file for the proper way to install your operating system after installing the DataLifeguard tools.
