Win 7 Install CD/DVD Device driver needed?

The install stops at the start asking for CD/DVD Device drivers...

Asus P5E Motherboard, installing from SATA DVD, Windows 7 x64 Build 7600.

I have tried the Vista drivers on Asus homepage, they wont accept them, anyone know a solution?

thanks

it may be worth checking your bios for what you have se your disks to be seen as , there is no reason for it not to see your samsung drives, none whatsoever.

I am confused, you are installing Windows 7 and it is prompting for device drivers for what? The only think I can think of is the drive controller, but that would be included int eh chipset.

At what point is it asking? Is Widows 7 up and running? Or is it asking you this afterryou booted from the DVD and started the install?

If there is an option in your BIOS like IDE emulation for SATA, try disabling it. There have been reports that this has solved the Driver issue in Vista so should work for Windows 7 too.

Hope this helps

Try another DVD drive. Or may be you should Install Windows 7 using a Flash drive.

Well, i cant get rid of my system giving me Chassis Intrusion now, i plugged the switch trying to reset the bios, and hooking up an IDE drive to see if that fixed it...

1st of all it asks for CD/DVD device driver at the first Windows 7 GUI Installer, i havnt had this since 7232, all builds up to that one has been ok, and the OS has been stable, but ever since 7232 it asked me about device drivers, i got the first 7600 build and it actually got installed without asking for those drivers during install but the system has been BSOD'ing all the time, like it got past that CD/DVD device drivers at install, BSOD the most on log off...

Now im not quiet sure, it could be my setup since i got OSX on this system and it manages boot from an Active partition wich is not NTFS, but anyways i got it installed pre 7232 and 7 and OSX,XP has been working fine. maybe they did something to the installer.

Anyways i cant get past a good boot i have that damn Chassis Intrusion Alert and there is no option in the bios that i see that i can disable the damn thing, was gonna try a single IDE drive and see how that was going to go. I was amused my self that the 7 install asked for device drivers ever since it first happened, the last time i had to launch chipset drivers during an OS install was with SATA HDD's under XP... its basically the same thing going here now for 7.

I got IDE, RAID and AHCI for selection under SATA tho, damn me about that Chassis Intrusion, i read about it on the net alot of ppl have it with Asus motherboards unable to disable it, this system is as well as useless now and i just saved up money for a new 120hz lcd lol-

thanks guys. ill try it over if i get past that s*** or be getting a new system.

I ended up just turning it off in bios and making sure that I didn't have anything connected to those pins. then do a re-install. Then again if your system is a complete asus build it could be particular to them- I don't know.

Off topic slightly how are you finding your leopard install? would you rate it over 7 ?

Whould you keep it when retail 7 ships?

saverio, would u please look up in the bios and tell me under wich menu and what it is called?

u mean in terms of how osx runs on the pc? runs just like a mac, and i probably would not run osx if it wasnt for Logic (audio sequencer). And if i was new with computers then i would go for 7.
