  1. Hi

    When trying to install windows this message comes up after the partitioning part 'setupdd.sys' and does not reconise any of my hard drive's i have one 250gb and a new one of 40gb and it does not reconise this either i checked all cables and the jumper settings and found no fault there so i then changed the bios setting for it to go through the IDE instead of raid and still no luck. 'Help please'
