This is related to another thread of mine, but the situatioin has changed so radically that a new thread made sense.
With the help of MS Tech Support on the phone [got right through!] he explained how to get rid of all my annoying partitiions. So, both drives were wiped out and made into single primary partitions.
I then installed Vista but had problems with a few of the drivers
. A couple of them failed, but they were like 'touchpad' and such. Nothing that I saw as critical.
The minute Vista was complete, I custom installed Win 7 and it went well, execpt that it did say it could not find some drivers--of course, it did NOT say WHICH drivers! It just says, driver
missing, click to browse or install.
I have no idea which one, or where it is.
So, rebooted to Win 7 and a few issues:
1: it knows the second hard drive is present and working, but it does not show in My Computer or Explorer. That is my biggest issue.
2: I have been installing second monitors on many machines for years, but this time, Win 7 can't seem to find my large moniitor. It worked before with Vista and it worked before with the first insall of Win 7.
It says missing drivers in the screen shots, but are these Vista drivers it wants? Or Win 7 drivers?
