Solved New System Built, Windows 8 BSOD when installing SATA Drivers Tags: Windows 8 Last response: August 19, 2013 12:04 PM in Windows 8 Share jkarr77 August 19, 2013 10:57:24 AM Hello, I built a new system with the parts listed below. System seems to boot just fine but when I go to install Windows 8 and it asked for the drivers for the SATA I get a BSOD. Any ideas what it could be? Also I should mention that I am trying to install it on the SSD HHD but my bios doesnt see the drive.

If it is set to IDE mode you will have issues with a solidstate drive. Confirm that the driver you are attempting to install is certified for Windows 8, if not, see if the vendor offers one for download. Share Can't find your answer ? Ask !
