3F0 Error, Error 0X8007045D , Error 0x8004240f

HP Recommended
ProBook 4540s
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

Ok so I have many issues with my laptop.

First of all one day it failed and it was giving me the Hard drive not found (3F0) error.

I decided to buy a new hard drive and still the same.

Then I inserted a bootable usb (windows 7 pro 64bit) and tried to install windows.

Then on the screen that I had to select the drive, the hard drive was shown.

When I pressed to install windows a new error appeared. (ERROR CODE 0X8007045D).

I devided to start over. Then again a new error appeared (Error 0x8004240f)

I am really frustrated.

What's wrong?

Any advice?

Thank you

You need to partition the drive into one whole drive.

 

You can use any free partition tool on-line.

First thing delete Disk 2 partition.

 

Then repartition as NTFS.

 

Post back with a pic after that.

Just to make sure right click on the disk and make sure it is ACTIVE.

 

If it is not make it ACTIVE.
