I am trying to install windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on a new system and it starts the install, but stops with a message that a required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. System has a LG SATA cd/dvr, so I checked LG's site, found that there is an update that adds win 7 capability. I have no other system to flash the drive in, so I called LG. They said no drivers are needed, that my install disk is bad. I downloaded the img file from Microsoft, and have burned it w/ 3 different burners/software, still the same message?! I also installed a lite on ide burner, did install, same message. Help!
XP has been installed, before drive was reformatted. disk has been re=created, on two different machines, with at least 4 different software packages, and verified on each. Drive was checked with WD's certification software. no errors, no RMA created. This has to be something simple I've overlooked. How can I re-partition this drive w/ no operating system?
yeach your HDD valid !

Still have not succeeded in installing Win 7 (or XP 32b). Contacted Gigabyte tech support, got an answer w/ a set of AHCI/SATA Controller drivers. Drivers load, but then Win install finds no new devices. Diskpart in cmd window recognizes disk, partition and volumes. Contacted Gigabyte Tech support and got the exact (obviously canned) answer & files. I removed all SATA devices, disabled the SATA controller in bios, put in an ide drive & cdrom, Windows still prompts for drivers, loads them, and doesn't find any new devices, effectively stopping the install. I'm still waiting for further response from Gigabyte.
