I'm wonder how I would go about doing that. My hard drive model, as supplied by the manufacturer of my copmuter, is NVIDIA JBOD 372.61G
Update: I did a google search, and found that my motherboard is the one that requires the drivers. I found this page: http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_download..._x86_beta2.html which pretty much explains my exact situation. I downloaded the drivers and burned them to a CD, but when I went back into the Vista installation and Loaded Drivers, I got a message saying they weren't found on the CD.
Update2: I tried putting those same driver on a USB flash drive, and got the same result. The installation wasn't able to find any drivers. Something else I shoulod note: this last time I booted from the installation DVD, I got to the "Choose where to install" screen and saw that my external HDD was on the list. The other times I had attempted to install, my external was turned off, but this time I turned it on before booting and it recognized it.
Update3: I decided to install Vista through Windows XP, and not booting it from the DVD. I got up to the point where it tried to recognize my hard drive, and this time it worked. I selected the partition I had made for it, and went through the rest of the installation steps. Immediately before it began "Copying Files" an error popped up saying that some devices were missing drivers. I stopped the installation and made sure the devices on that list were all up-to-date and started installing Vista again. This time I decided to ignore the error, and continued installing. It went through the rest of the steps, but when it restarted, I got a blue screen with the error 0x0000007B (0x80804BB0, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I force restarted my PC, and it attempted to boot into Vista again. On the next installation, I pressed F8 and was able to choose my "Old" version of Windows. Every time I try to boot my computer, I get the same blue screen, and I have to manually select Windows XP. Right now this is my biggest concern...
