    I wanted to install Windows 8 in My Dell Inspiron N5010 Laptop. When I started Windows 8 Setup, Hard Disk Drives were shown and I formatted the C Drive and selected the same for that Windows 8 to install in but I don't know for which reason Windows 8 didnot installed completely. Windows 8 setup copied the files but after restarting an error appeared that Your Computer sidnot started Properly. Now when I try to install the Windows again then at the time of selection of Drive, it shows that "No Disk Drives Found".
    While I have checked My Hard Drive with "Paragon Partition Manager", Disk Drives are visible there and I can format the Drives as well as browse the Data of my Drives But in that Software all my Disk Drives are visible as INACTIVE. Now, when I insert Windows 7 DVD an error appears which shows that WINDOWS CANNOT COMMUNICATE WITH DEVICE CONNECTED TO UR PC. I m unable to Install the Operating System in My Laptop.
    AnyBody can Help me???
