I am installing Windows 7 on my Compaq Presario SR5010NX. SATA hard drives and IDE hard drives both detect and are visible in Setup (BIOS) as well as in my existing Windows 7 which is on a small 37 Gb SATA. When I try to install Windows 7 onto a new SATA hard drive 1.0T it wont show up in the window to select it for installation. The next window says to brows to the device driver to install it in the system. It describes the needed driver as a 'Mass Storage Controller Driver' which I cannot find anywhere. WTF do I do ?
yes you must press F6 during installation and provide it with the hard disk controller drivers from the manufacturer. Also if you simply moved the hard disk to SATA0 I dont think you would have this problem
