Windows 7: Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro Sli

Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro Sli

Hello, I have a gigabyte ga-k8n pro sli mb and a samsung sp2504c sata hd that I am trying to install latest Windows 7 beta on. I get to the point where I choose to do a clean install and I see my hd in the list but it asks for drivers for hd or mb. I am thinking it is for the mb. It gives me the option of browsing for the driver. I can install xp pro on this same set-up without any trouble. Any help would be great. Thanks.

dlettau, welcome to the forums.

If you have it set to SATA in the bios, what it is most likely asking ofr is the SATA drivers. Start here,

View forum - nForce Drivers • nForcersHQ.com

and see which set is working best with the NF4 chipset and download it. Once downloaded extract it. Place the extracted files on a separate hard drive/partition or USB key (if you have one, then during the Windows install point it to the folder that contains the SATA/RAID INF.

Thanks for the link. I tried with no luck. Did some research and first tried unhooking my IDE DVD. No luck, unhooked my card reader, no luck. Finally I saw that my SATA DVD Burner was posting in ide devices before my HD. Got that so HD showed up first when posting and in bios. Windows 7 64 is installing as I write this. Thanks for the info, it made me look deeper.
