There is a 100% working solution, just because so many people encountered this problem with their 4k sector drives. Just read the FAQ, blueking provided a link to the solution.

I will try. Wow that looks complicated

is there a way to change this 4k drive sector thingy BEFORE actually installing anything on it ?

And what should the drive be ? Sector wise?
And how would you know which have or which to buy?

A different way to format? Mine is not the Western Digital

mine is a 750gb. 7,200rpm I believe Hitachi

Re: followed blueking probook installer to the T and...

so i looked at my HD brand:

Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s

any way to change this 4k sector thingy? or it is what it is, it's hardware?

this 750gb Seagate 4k sector drive was NOT the one that came with my probook 4530s

the one that came is 500gb Hitachi with windows 7 pro
i just wanted to keep that one untouched

It's hardware. You can not change it.
Lets hope future updates at chameleon will fix this issue
