Trouble installing 7; installing on SSD and no drives found

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I burned a brand-new DVD, verified it, and have it in an internal DVD drive connected via SATA2 port. Now, when I go to install, it says no devices found, please insert drivers, yadda yadda. So I put in the original motherboard DVD drive, it finds the driver, and then says it still cannot find any media. The devices are plugged into SATA0 and SATA2 ports, NOT the ASMedia ports (disabled those anyway) and AHCI is on. Windows is currently on the drive, I just wanted to do a reinstall. Now, on the Windows 7 disc, if I go to "Repair my Computer", it finds my Windows install already.

What is the deal with this? I had this problem before when I first installed, but I don't remember what I did to get it to work. I think it was because I was installing from the USB3 port, so the situation before is a little different than this time.


UPDATE: I went ahead and downloaded the drivers from the site and put them on a USB stick to get the latest drivers. Same issue. Then I tried just installing straight from the USB stick (didn't want to wipe it earlier, but I did) and I'm getting the same results, whether I plug into a SATA2 or SATA3 port, and no matter what drivers I load up. I tried everything that was labeled on the drivers page for HDD.



I honestly don't know what to try now. Apart from another .iso, but this was downloaded directly from Microsoft, is updated with SP1 and all.

Did you use the " Intel SATA Floppy Image (RST) ver: 11.7.0.1013" and extract the files to your usb drive?

If you mean any of the first 4 labelled under HDD, then yes. The 5th one at 36MB is a .exe I believe, but I'm redownloading now to check.

Did you take the files out of the zip and just have them loose on the usb drive or were they still in the zip?

I took them out.

So, I thought maybe it couldn't see it because there was an OS already on it...so I got desperate and just wiped it. Still nothing. Tried installing Ubuntu on it and trying it again. Nothing.

Soo....I decided to go ahead and RMA my motherboard for unrelated reasons. A few memory channels weren't working correctly and I have been putting it off for awhile anyway. Thanks for the help so far anyway.
