Windows 7: Device driver software was not successfully installed.

24 Feb 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Device driver software was not successfully installed.


I installed windows 7 Ult on my Toshiba satellite l50 laptop (which had no operating systems installed at the time). No programs were installed and 7 drivers weren't recognised.

I used the same installation CD to install Windows 7 on VMware (on my desktop) and the drivers were successfully installed and had 2 programs installed(excluding VMware).

Ubuntu on the other hand was able to recognise the drivers when I booted it from the live CD meaning there must be a problem within windows 7 not my laptop.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

You need to go look for those drivers!

Your laptop and desktop would require different drivers.
Ubuntu and most Linux disrtos' are pretty good with drivers these days; so I guess you got lucky with that.

Start on the manufacturers website for the laptop; you'll probably find everything you need there.
