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.

System spec:
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.

How much ram do you have? The 64bit os needed if you have more than 4GB of ram.
Why did you went back to xp when you had windows 7 installed?

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.

Industrialism,

Your installation could be prompting you for a SATA driver for your chipset. It would be best to check with your motherboard manufacturer and download the appropriate driver.

Also, should you require additional assistance and guidance, Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/catego... . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams.

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!
