Choose the load SATA driver option during installation time and insert the driver disc given by the manufacturer ..I think that should work..

Have you tried changing your SATA mode. I have known this issue to occur many times when dealing with XP installations where the HDD wasn't supported by XP. ACER would have placed a customised Windows 7 image onto the drive when you bought the laptop, which would have contained the driver.

Simply go into the BIOS and change the SATA Mode to IDE (it's probably in AHCI), and see if that helps.

Thank-you clangers - tried to change mode - Same No device driver were found ... I beggining to wonder if my is beyond repairable - I can format it and copy files to it at ease with no issues - I even ran a checkdsk and nothing was found - I loaded a spare HD for now since I needed a laptop - I will probably need to buy a new HD -

Thanks to all the replies

Cheers!

No promises, but this is from the latest AMD chipset package,

W764A.zip

Just extract it and put it on a USB key, then try the installation again and when it asks for the SATA driver point it to the folder.
