I am trying to install windows as a clean install, in that I want to format the hard drive fully during installation, rather than trying to upgrade from inside the OS. I currently have windows vista installed on the machine.
I insert the disc, restart the computer, it boots the disc, I get to the menu, choose install, and instead of going to upgrade or custom, it says it cant find some drivers
. It doesn't specify which ones. I am using an OEM version of windows 7, so I can't upgrade only clean install.
My current theory is that it wants a full set of motherboard drivers for my motherboard. However, I have been unable to locate them anywhere on the web.
I would appreciate either a link to a website, or if this is not likely the problem either a piece of advice or a point to the correct article on the forum to read. I will be searching the forum as well in hopes of finding an answer.
Thank you in advance! If you need any more info to help, just ask.
