Problem in installing Windows 7 on HP Sleekbook 15

Hello,
I have recently purchased a new HP Sleekbook 15 - b003 TU notebook. But when I try to install Windows 7 on it, it asks for drivers ( I assume its for the SATA AHCI driver ) . I have tried providing it with drivers that I downloaded from Intel, HP, Lenovo, etc but it doesn't accept it.

    I'm taking a look at the BIOS of the computer now....

    EDIT: Well, it would appear that this computer came with Windows 8 on it originally. That being said, HP doesn't have drivers directly from them that support Windows 7 for this computer.

    You need the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for the computer to be able to install Windows correctly. The link above will take you to the Windows 8 version on HP's website. It may or may not work.

    Intel does have an install for Intel Matrix Storage Manager on their site which is for Windows 7 and is designed to help the motherboard in that computer identify the HDD via AHCI. You can attempt to use that and see if it helps.
  4. I integrated the intel ahci driver in the win 7 installation . Then it worked. Thank you very much for your advice

    Hi! I have the same problem. Can you provide more details please?
    Did you make a new DVD with windows 7 which includes the intel ahci drivers?
    I tried to load some drivers from a USB flash but it won't detect it.
    Also, can you please provide a link to the drivers that you have used?

    Thanks a lot!
