I have recently replaced a laptop hard drive in my gateway laptop. I am attempting to partition and re-install windows. Apparently, if the windows disk that I use is NOT provided by Gateway, it needs a motherboard SATA driver.
I have the correct driver I believe I need. The instructions say to hit F6 during setup to get to the third party install, which I can do.... BUT I am not able to get the laptop to see my USB drive with the driver on it. Does anyone know what I must do to the USB drive to get it to be recognized by the computer... ie. BIOS settings, bootable USB, and/or what driver files must be present where on the drive?
