It sounds like the Windows install disc cannot identify the disc drive that yoou have so you'll have to look up the name of the drive you have and find the drivers for it so oyu can load them when installing Windows.

I can't verify exactly what you mean, either your cd drive isnt loading a driver that windows needs for the storage controller, or it cant read a driver from the disk, or your cd drive itself isnt being identified properly by the installer. I would recommend trying another cd drive to rule this out.

I finally installed Windows 7 Professional. I tried all the tricks from several different forum answers / suggestions. But no luck. Then I thought: "hey, it might be a good idea to try to install an earlier version of Windows then do a full / clean install from there." So I tried to install Windows XP Professional 32-bit. After 3 - 5 minutes the install failed, "this installation has stopped to prevent any damage to your hardware." I am not sure but I did get to an Automatic Problem Fix screen somewhere in my efforts. I tried this but it failed also. Anyway, I think the most direct solution would be to install an earlier version of Windows and then install Windows 7 after, since all the drivers are then loaded. I think this is what occurred when I tried to install Windows XP Professional. Install an earlier version of Windows first. Then delete partitions / format as desired when installing Windows 7. (Please post this solution to at least one other forum. I can't get to them all. I don't have the time. Thanks.)
