Hello readers, I’ve just built a new pc, rough spec below. I’m not very knowledgeable (probably haven’t set it up correctly it’s a quad core its all rather intimidating coming from a 1.1ghz AGP machine prior) and I’m having difficulties, hoping to find answers here.
OS: Currently XP I did install windows 7 32 bit, and went back to XP
Mobo: Asus p6t deluxe v2 (the one without the sas controllers)
CPU: Intel i7 920
Ram: Crucial ballistix 1333mhz
Not over clocked, all stock, on air with a heat sink.
1. I’m trying to install windows 7 64 bit (frustrating/border line tears), during installation, a driver that has no description is required from a media device, searching online and using ideas I’m still unable to install windows 7 64 bit, but I have had windows 7 32 bit installed, without a driver requirement issue.
2. In my bios I can read my lg ch08 super multi blu ray drivers description, but it doesn’t show up (the letter drive icon) in my computer, it opens closes and speeds up, and I can not find a driver online… it doesn’t appear to exist inside the os.
I haven’t flashed the bios, seems to deep a process but it may be required, I ran windows 7 upgrade advisor and it mentioned a miniport driver possible issue, I just really need guidance here, I’m trying to install Windows 7 home premium edition, thanks for your time.
I have a 6gb kit 3 modules more than enough.
I instaled windows 7 32 bit, had problems (slow sluggish), I deleted the windows.old folder carried from xp and didnt actually update from the windows site once I had win7 32 installed, my bad- anyway I wanted 64 all along - although chess titans was fun xp just had to go back on the machine, and if i had of updated I would of got the bug back then which froze every computer using win 7 and updating from there site, it made the news can't find a link though.
Its all fixed now, I have home premiuim rc2 2008 the green one!, when I installed it at the weekend the online updates during installation allowed it to actually function correctly, as an operating system. I believe my blu ray sata drive is just faulty, as I had issues linking two different roms up set (slave/master) by the jumpers on the back of them, they work fine after trial and error.
The driver I require is on the motherboard disk, when you attempt to boot it from start up like an os disk, you have 32 or 64 bit options for a driver, and you require a floppy drive, I thought I had put this driver on a usb flash drive after downloadng it, nvm fixed now!
