I hope I have placed this question in the right forum.
I'm working on my first homebuilt/newbuild, and I'm up to installing the OS - Vista64 Home Premium OEM.
The Vista install runs up to the point of telling me that it can't find a driver for my CD/DVD. I have a Samsung OEM SH-S222, on an IDE cable connected to an ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 MOBO. I've tried both the cable-select and master settings, with the same result. It is the only IDE device connected to the MOBO. The HD is sata, and I don't have a floppy drive installed.
The Samsung website says this model uses a standard atapi driver, so Samsung doesn't provide a separate driver.
Clearly Vista identifies something, because it boots and runs the install program.
I'm kinda stuck. Any suggestions? What other info can I provide?
Got it solved! Based on rand_79's assertion that I should not need a driver, I went back to look through the setup once again.
Long story short, I found an IDE cable that came with the MOBO and was color-coded to match the description in the MOBO manual. I replaced the generic IDE cable I was using with the one from ASUS and "VOILA!"
The Vista Install now appears to be almost finished with the fourth "Installing Updates" step.
