Hi, I recently got an alienware d900t and it didn't come with any hdd's.
I had some spare hdd's and tried installing windows xp and then tried windows 7 as well but when i get to the part where it asks me to choose a partition and/or to create one it wont let me and says there is no drive.

I think it gives an option for either type of drive if the mobo has those connections. Have you tried an external flash drive to boot off of? Its an IDE drive but the hard drive cable that connects to the motherboard is for ide drives. I don't have an external hard disk to use so i don't know. This was the most powerful desktop replacement on the market when it came out. Although this can sometimes be true, it is often NOT the case with the Clevo D900T.
