    Hi, gotta problem, I'm trying to install Windows 7 on my M400, but it don't see hard drive.
    The hard drive is surly ok, 'couse I've tested it in the other netbook, I can see it in BIOS, but any installing program cannot.

    (I've tried XP Tablet ed., and Ubuntu as well)

    Hi Radzik,

    I think Windows doesn’t see the HDD due missing RAID drivers… Windows needs such RAID drivers before you can install it because it doesn’t contain such drivers so the HDD is not recognized. You can download the RAID driver on Toshiba website.

    Then you can create a new installation disk using nLite with the drivers or you copy the drivers on an external floppy drive. After booting from Windows XP you have to press F6 key to load the drivers from FDD.

    Check this!!!
