A friend asked me to install win 7 on a new laptop.
I got Win 7 build 7022 but the installation was unable to recognize the Hard drive.
It suggests to use drivers.
I downloaded all the win vista intel ahci drivers which are compatible to this laptop, and they're unsuitable for win 7.
Any solution besides waiting for compatible drivers?
it doesnt seem like its the os or the drive thats the problem, it looks like the onboard controler for the drives/ ports needs drivers to be usable, which obviosly cant be installed after the fact, have you tried extracting just the essential files for the drivers to a usb key and using that during setup so that windows can fin the drive and install?
