Default Trying to Locate Drivers for my Hard Drive...

It seems everywhere I turn I get a Driver Manager, or Downloader, or Scanner.... but not just a driver....

I'm looking for the driver(s) for my Western Digital (WD5000BEVT - 22ZAT0) Internal Hard Drive. The reason I need only the driver(s) is that I cannot actually log on to do anything (Operating System not found). So, I'm looking for them (WD's site didn't have anything useful, that I could find) now.

HDDs do not need drivers. They are plug n play. What are you trying to accomplish again?

Is this a fresh hard drive (HDD)? If yes, you would need to format it and install an Operating System (OS) in order for it to be operational. If not, then there could be an error or you HDD have failed; you would have to either repair or reinstall the OS or buy a whole new HDD.
Need to update my siggy!
