Clean Install on newly built PC: No signed device drivers were found.

I just put together my first custom built PC. I have run into a problem trying to install Windows 10 64 bit (off of an OEM disc). When I get to the part where it asks me where I want to install windows, it shows up blank, saying "We couldn't find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load driver."

Now, I thought that I might find the drivers on my motherboard support CD, but I don't see where any of the drivers are (or rather the Windows setup doesn't see them), and then the Windows setup says "No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."

BIOS detects everything, the hard drive, the optical drive (obviously), ram, video card, processor.

I know this is my first time building a computer, so I'm probably overlooking something very basic, but I'm at a dead end. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Hi,

    Please do try using this complete video tutorial on how to install Windows 10 that may help.

    Also try creating a new Windows 10 disc or USB and just use the product key that came with the OEM disc.

    Thank you for the quick response. Unfortunately, I already have tried to install Windows 10 as described in the video, as well as trying to install from an USB instead. The problem still persists.
  3. I managed to fix this problem by formatting the hard drive through DOS. I'll post the step by step process later when I get access to a computer, in case anyone runs into this same problem.
