So I recently bought and assembled a custom machine. Here are my specs:
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 Motherboard with newest bios (f3)
8 GB DDR3 Corsair 1600mhz ram
955BE AMD Cpu (Phenom ii x4)
500w Coolermaster
Rosewill Challenger U3 USB 3 edition
Radeon HD 6750 GPU (from HIS)
1 TB Hitachi Deskstar 7200 RPM (in NTFS format)

So I get the Comp built, and did not have a windows iso yet, so I put Ubuntu 11.04 on it. When I tried to put on Windows 7 64-bit, via live USB, I get to the Install Windows button (very early in the process), before it gives me the error LOAD DRIVER: No device drivers were found. Make Sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK.

So I can browse for drivers, and I have downloaded the Windows drivers for the Sata and AMD 970 chipset from Gigabyte, but the install windows screen does not pick them up. I hit browse and then find the folder i saved them in and hit ok, yet it finds nothing.
My bios have been changed from AHCI to IDE with no luck.
Please Help Me! I have used 2 different USB's and 2 Different ISO's

So I may have found a fix, thanks to some additional searching, I found that removeing the USB after hitting cancel does the trick Ill post the link later.
