where to find hard disk drivers for the acer 5942g using repair disc?

Hi there,

I have had a problem with a bsod on my acer 5942g laptop screen reads UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME now i changed the sata mode to IDE and then popped in a windows 7 repair disc i am now in system recovery options but my os isn't listed in the window. It says if my os isn't listed i have to load the Load drivers then install drivers for the hard disk but i have no idea what i am looking for or where to even begin looking. can anyone help?

Switch back to AHCI and download the SATA AHCI driver here: Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 5942G

Save it on a USB flash drive or blank disc and install it when asked.

You also need to upload your mini-dump files so that our BSOD experts can check it out for you.
