Hi, I've recently bought a new 320GB Hard Drive 2.5" for my laptop, but I am having a bit of a problem installing Windows 7 on to it. I have inserted the HDD into my laptop and inserted my Windows 7 Disk but I keep getting the following error message, even though the HDD is new and there is no USB plugged into the laptop: Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer. This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer. Status 0xc00000e9 Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred. So I was wondering if there was someway I could install the Windows 7 on the HDD using my HDD Docking System and my PC? Or if anyone had anyone had any other suggestions that may help? Kind Regards
