No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation. Tags: Notebooks Storage Hard Drives Motherboards Last response: May 26, 2014 6:24 PM in Motherboards Share Abid Riaz May 26, 2014 12:06:34 PM Hi, I have a Asus X401A notebook that has an Aptio 212 bios. The problem starts here as I can't see the Hdd anywhere. I have tried different hdd's with no luck. If I connect an external optical drive I get as far as: "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation." I have tried Gparted as well as Shift + F10 once you come to installing Win7 and come to the Language option. No hdd is listed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
