Hi, I am not an expert to this stuff. But for my y560 laptop, i bought a new hitachi 500GB , 7200rpm harddisk.
I put that into the laptop and putin the windows 7 recovery disc.
then when turned on, there is a windows loading file black screen. Then comes the windows install pages.
i click click click and then it comes to a page where it lists a "Disk 0 unallocated Space" of size ard 465GB.
I know there are some mysterious tweaks for this y560 type laptops (e.g. hidden partition / recovery partition / NTFS / something to do with that) . It does not allow me to click "Next" as it says something like "system can not find correct partition , please chk log etc)
How I should change this new harddisk first before I can proceed ? I am guessing this new harddisk needed to be partitioned exactly to the same sizes as the default inorder to proceed.
Also check on forums that playing around with these partitioning will lose the 1-key recovery which i dun think is helping me at all as i m trying to install a completely new hdd as my old one is dead. I read abt something like burning hdd images etc but i have no idea wt i m reading.
Please generously advice as this is such a pain to me
Thanks a whole lot
