Device driver software was not successfully installed (fresh install)
Just made a thread a short while ago regarding file associations being messed up after an SSD clone in the file associations forum.
Long story short, formatted the SSD and did a fresh install of win7 home premium 64bit.
Install completes with no apparent problems, but upon startup I find there is no internet connection, and my local area network isnt recognised.
I went into devices and printers/troubleshooting, and what I found was that the following devices had the error Device driver software was not successfully installed, with the problem appearing to be 'no driver found'
- SM Bus Controller
- Ethernet Controller
- PCI Simple Communications Controller
- USB Controller
- USB Controller
I then tried to get the drivers to search the install disk, same problem.
I then checked these devices on my wifes computer, copied the driver files to a portable stick, plugged that into a usb port (it found the stick drive immediately) and tried to install from the stick drive, same problem.
I then copied the complete driver file from my wifes comp (also a win7 home premium 64bit comp) and tried to get it to search from there, but still it says no driver found.
Im really not sure where to go from here, I even reformated the drive and did another fresh install, exactly the same problem, drivers didnt install.
After 3am now and Im getting super frustrated and angry, would really appreciate any advice you guys have on how to possibly fix this problem.
Thanks again all for your time.
