I desperately need to reinstall my operating system so I can reformat and erase everything on my drive. THe last time I did so was 2.5 years ago and my computer is probably infected with all kinds of garbage so I"ve backed up my stuff and am ready to reinstall, but the drive isn't detected in my computer.
I'm running :
RAM: 4 gig
HD: 1 tb
processor: i7 2600k
When the intel menu comes up within the first few seconds of booting, it gives the option of going to bios or boot menu. For the drive to appear in boot menu, I have to open the drive and keep it open during those few seconds. It is only during these few secondst hat the light flashes and I can open and close, but right now for example, I can't open and close and there is no light because im in windows. In BIOS it also detects the drive
THe only thing I know about the drive is that it says "lightscribe" on the front, and I ordered the parts separately from a vendor so its not a "gateway" or "dell" etc please help
