Recently, my samsung rv520 laptop had its hard drive stop working. I bought a new completely blank hard drive and tried to install windows 7. It would get to a point where I could select the hard drive, but there would always be an error before it could start downloading. After a couple minutes of fiddling with it I decided to give up and search the internet, but so far nothing has helped me. Now though, it is even more frustrating. When I boot up the install dvd it gets to that point where I could select it, except now it isn't there anymore. I can't seem to find anything of use so far. I am tired and quite annoyed at this point, and I really hope I didn't mess up this new hard drive. If somebody could please shed some light on this situation it would be very helpful.
