I have a dell mini laptop nick edition, hard drive crashed, bought another (western Digital) when installing windows 7 i get this error "windows cannot be installed to this disk. This computers hardware may not support booting to this disk. Ensure the disks controller is enabled in the computers bios." I have phoenix bios V. A06, i read alot of threads and there is no way to change from ide, sata or raid in the bios. is there anything i can do
