I stupidly tried to upgrade to Windows 8 on a Windows 7 Gigabyte slate S1080. It didn't work and now when I try to reinstall Windows 7, network and USB are not detected. The windows 7 installation is trying to find the device drivers but as there is no CD ROM and the USB is not detected, I can't go any further. Please help!

Two ideas: use the recovery option: Press and release the Power button to turn on the operation system. Press “-“ to enter into GIGABYTE System Recovery. Use Directing Hot Key to operate GIGABYTE Smart Recovery.
Or, if not working, try using VLite for slpstreaming the needed drivers into the Windows 7 installation kit.

Alexoiu and Dodger46, thanks for your replies. Before trying your solutions, I found that the USB port that the keyboard connects to was visible during installation but that the other USB port is not. Managed to get up and going.

Thanks again for your help

Can you download the usb and network drivers and put those on your boot drive by using a SATA/IDE to USB cable? Then install the drivers from there. I know it's tedious but it's doable.
