I just bought a new system and built it myself and was pleasantly surprised to see that it started up ok..now im trying to install windows 7 64-bit from a DVD and I get this message:
"No signed device drivers wre found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct dirvers, and then click OK."
I went to ASUS's website and dl'd my HDD's driver and put it on a USB. The installation recognized it and I assume used it but I still have this issue. Basically when I go to select were I want to install windows, there's nothing there.
I don't have a 4GB USB and was hoping I could fix this w/o one - I do have a phone with like 10GB storage but I think you have to wipe everything to install windows from a USB.....
Here's a list of my specs:
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
HITACHI HDS721050CLA362 (0F10381) 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9W
ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
Did you enter the BIOS and make sure the controller is enabled, the drives are showing up, and you have a boot order assigned?
Win 7 needs needs nothing for your SATA drives, it has all the drivers it needs.
Yah I remember being able to edit the boot order - there are 2 sets of cables plugged into the SATA ports - 1 set is black heads with black wires and the other set is black heads with red wires. Is this correct?
If you can't load the SATA device drivers because they are unsigned, then a work around would be to enter the BIOS and select IDE mode for your SATA controller. This is not quite as good as loading the SATA driver as you will lose NCQ (Native Command Queuing) but you will not notice the difference.
