What do you mean by virus screen? Is it a blue screen?

its a driver error asking for a floppy drive to install sata drivers from, i had it on my DV8000. do you have an external floppy drive?

haha probably not likely.

otherwise there is always the voiding of the microsoft support, warrantee and whatnot by slipstreaming it in.

i however just installed it as a different driver type and it worked fine, you should be able to install sata drivers later.

The other thing you can do is go into the BIOS, and set the SATA mode from AHCI to IDE.
