To cut a long story short, I'm installing Windows 7 on my new (OS-less) computer from an .iso on a disk. To install Windows, it says that I need a mass storage device and I need to install the mass storage device's driver.
I've tried the SATA (both RAID and AHCI) drivers on the motherboard's disk that came along with the computer, but they don't work. The BIOS says the HDD is definitely there, and I can see it connected, but Windows just won't pick up on it and I can't find any workable drivers.
Any help, please? My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P and the hard drive I'm trying to install on is SATA II. This is before Windows has begun installing and is looking for something to install on.
Thanks very much for the quick response guys! I really appreciate the help, but when I returned home and turned on the PC it seems to recognise the HDD drive now. God knows how, considering I don't think I did anything to it in that period, but I'm just glad it worked!
