Hello, I recently did a dual boot with windows and ubuntu 12.1 on my hp dv6t quad core laptop. When i try to restore the computer using an iso burned cd with windows 7 on it. I get an error message saying there is no driver installed.. what do i do to get windows to recognize my driver... I have tried using 2 different disks of windows and i still cannot figure out how to get windows to find my hard drive. Any help? thank you in adnvance

It's the Intel Matrix Storage Driver. Download and unpack it. There should be a f6readme.txt or something like that in it.

Why it cannot find the HD is due to the interface type selected for the HD device.
Depending on what it is set to it may require you to load the driver as part of the windows setup in order to see the drive or to run the controller chip of the laptop to allow it to see the drive on the interface.
However you can also change the drive interface in the bios so the HD can be seen.
Changing the option from Sata, to Ahci mode should allow the drive to be seen without the need for the extra driver and let you install the os to the HD of the laptop.
