For the device error make sure your first boot partition is dvd drive. Also make sure it is set as IDE drive in your bios. If its a sata drive you will probably encounter this error. I helped someone correct that error can you give me more details about what setup your using hard drive dvd drive?
sorry about the confusions, here how it went:
- while the original os; vista was still present, I booted the notebook from the dvd-drive with windows 7 installation disk inside
- it went well until I reached the part where I have to choose which partition that I want the installation to take place (note that throughout the process I am able to view the hard disk)
- but when I chose the partition (there is only 1) windows 7 displayed an error stating that I can not use the partition for windows 7
- after a number of searches, I decided to restart the installation process with a more 'prepared' hard disk thus the command prompt method and a blank clean partition
- then I rebooted the notebook with dvd-drive as main boot device, and I can not see the partition any-more, plus the 'no device driver found' error
the disk uses SATA and I do not see any option in bios to change between sata/ide/ahci
as for the originality of the installation disc, I am a crook
since you brought this up, I am testing the disc right away
thanks for the attention
burned a new bootable disc with the slowest speed available.
thanks for the pointer dexislegend123
