When I get to the "Where do you want to install Windows?" Screen, I click Drive Options (advanced) and am unable to format the drive. I get "no drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation. Where the heck can I find drivers? Dell Latitude E6410.

under sata would be hard drive related drivers but i suggest reloading all your drivers from chipset, sat, to sound....also if you have a windows 7 disk....you could boot up with it in you cd try and load it like your going to install windows...when you get to the drive page where you choose which drive to install it on....find your drive that you have issues with....delete the partition....then create a new one and formatt it.

edit....oops i am sorry thats what u are doing...tired hear forgive me.

you don't have a raid do you? that can complicate it. also never partition an ssd into multiple drives...only one or it won't work properly.
