Win 7 64 bit problem with storage drivers AHCI etc.

Hi. I got .ISO file WINDOWS 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 September 2012 and I think each time I got same problem with that drivers, not recognize disk issue.

few times I got same problem and each time diferent solution help.

On Lenovo IdeaPad I just download THIS driver and all go OK.
Than app month ago, on HP DV7 nothing help, and I take YUMI pendrive creator, and just make bootable USB key without any drivers extra added and install go like in story.

Today I got HP probook 4730s and nothing help, I take chipset drivers from HP support and extarct .exe with 7zip and add 64 divers on folder with just on that USB and same problem like allways.

Few months ago I see one web page with all this AHCI drivers but I forgot make bookmark, so Im in blind spot now.

Any idea how solved this problem, I cant make slipstream because I got only 32bit version computers in my house

Thank you for any support.

Lenovo IdeaPad and HP probook 4730s.

Two different computers. They are behaving the same way, storage device is not recognized.

If you installed windows in both of them using the same .iso file that you are talking about, it may be some reason that the iso is corrupt itself.

Follow Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .... the source of good iso and the proper method of installing windows to make it driver complete itself is mentioned there in details.

Hope it will fix your issue.

Hi. I use that same .ISO image for suorce when make USB installation drive.

Yes is diferent laptop's, but has same Intel arhitecture and Im allmost shure both got same controller ?

I try with bunch other images and allways got same problem, I think the problem is in image, mean is without this new AHCI drivers, so Im allways stuck in this point.


Maybe the best solution for me is to make new slipstreamed ISO and add that drivers.

But problem is, I got only 32 bit systems in house, so again problem.

Must try find some iso with drivers added and clean instalation (no worms, viruses etc.)

and Thank you

edit: is possible if I install 64 bit verision in VIRTUAL machine, mean if than be able to make slipstream .ISO on that environment ? I think that will pass ?

AHCI drivers .... you dont need to use any third party at all. The system native one, msahci.sys works much better than Intel's Rapid Storage; and it is stable at its own.

What you are thinking about slipstreaming etc is complicated. Use the system native driver forst. And if still the issue presents there, infer the source iso is corrupt.
