my CD/DVD drive (LiteOn DS(-)8A3S
) is not recognized by Windows 7 Pro x32. See original topic here
I just got my brand new Intel Atom "server" from ASRock
. And tried to installed Windows 7 Professional x32 on it. The ASRock ION 330 should be Windows 7 compatible
, see official badge on the website.
It failed out of the reason seen on the screenshot. It misses CD/DVD-drive drivers
What I tried to solve the issue:
01). Rescanning the Windows DVD
02). Putting in the ASRocks "Nettop Series" CD, which came with the Accessories
03). Without any CD/DVD inside
04). Changing the PIO mode (to "0" or "Disabled"(?))
05). I unchecked the "Hide drivers" box, yet didn't find any proper drivers
06). I set the BIOS settings to default
07). I updated the BIOS to v. 1.60
08). I set the BIOS settings to default again
09). I checked the SATA settings
10). I had the CD\DVD drive set as the first boot device as well as second boot device - no difference
11). I set the SATA settings from IDE to AHCI - didn't help
12). I contacted the ASRock and LiteOn e-mail support, they provided me with some of the above mentioned solutions - yet they couldn't provide me with drive drivers at all! Additional info:
I got the Win 7 RTM via MSDN and burned the image on a Sony DVD+R. I checked the ISO (after a move) for the MD5-hash (correct), although I had none provided from Microsoft. Installation of Windows XP SP2 x32 starts properly.
Though I don't know yet if this'll help in my error tracking?
Thanks for your help in advance!
