Windows 7: Install Windows 7 SATA controller driver


26 Jun 2010   #31

 
 

Ok, quick update.

I had no luck getting either of these installed unfortunately.
This one ( 64-bit Intel® RST Driver Files for F6 Install) downloaded as a .zip file. There was no .exe in the zipped file to upload.

As for the other one (┬ Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology), well, I just couldn't get it to work. I typed in the name in the DOS prompt, but it didn't recognize it. I tried it in all caps and lower case, with and without the .exe extension and neither worked. Not sure what I am doing or wrong.

I am tired so perhaps I will give them a shot in the morning.

Or perhaps I should just download the Intel drivers from the Dell site (Drivers & Downloads) and give them a shot.

Interesting development...I can no longer see the hard drive now.

I hadn't made any changes since I could see it last night. Bios is still version a17. I loaded my flash drive with the files from above (http://www.sevenforums.com/attachmen...r-capture3.png) to install them in the 'load drivers' section of the install. I realized that I was still set to boot from the flash drive so I went into bios to change the boot sequence. No drive was seen in the boot sequence. Interestingly enough, if you scrolled down to drives it saw my hard drive on sata1.

Anyway, I thought I would proceed with the install and sure enough it was missing in the partition section of the install.

I tried to load the sata drivers, but it said it didn't find any that would work (or something along those lines). It did see one on the flash drive, I selected it and attempted to install it, but that is when I received the message that none would work.

This is baffling and frustrating!

So back to the drawing board...

The problem may very well be solved and I can honestly tell you that I have never seen anything like this before.

So instead of running check disk, I thought I would give something else a shot first. The drive that I had installed was my back-up in my other PC and had been fully functional so I didn't necessarily think that was the issue. I had a brand new 1 TB drive that I had planned to use as my primary back-up in this PC so since it was new I thought I would give it a shot to see if it would recognize that drive.

So I pulled the old drive and attempted to pop in the new drive, but it wouldn't go into the sata data cable. After a close review it appears that the plastic protector on the sata data cable connection on the drive broke off into the data cable. I assume that I had a loose connection and that is why it would occasionally recognize it.

Luckily, I just happened to have another sata data cable on hand and tried it with the new drive and not only did it recognize it, it is installing right now.

So I just partitioned that drive. Not my preferred method, but since the other drive appears to be useless now I guess this is the route that I am going to have to take. Maybe I will buy an external for my back-up in time.

I really appreciate the help. It was quite a learning experience for me.

No drivers are need for SATA HDD drives.
Look for the Sata controller drivers, which is part of the motherboard.
