No Device Drivers were found Windows 7 installation
Hello all, I recently built a desktop so that I could play SWTOR, all the parts were salvaged from other computers, but they are all working and compatible, to the best of my knowledge, except for the hard drive, which was broken, so I went out and bought a Western Digital 1 TB hard drive and a new copy of Windows 7 Home Edition.
When I got home I plugged the hard drive, a SATA drive, in and popped the install disk in, only right after I got to the "Install Now" button and clicked it did I get this message;
No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK
A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step.
I know that all the required parts are in the computer, yet I can't seem to figure out how to solve this, any help at all would be appreciated.

Reset BIOS to defaults, then try again AHCI mode first, then IDE mode.
Write the latest Windows 7 SP1 ISO to flashstick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu, boot under USB, Removable or HD's on one-time BIOS Boot Menu key. Set HD as first to boot in BIOS setup. Unplug DVD drive while trying USB install. We do this to eliminate the installer as possibility since the error is almost always installer.
Remove all but 2gb RAM to try install. Swap the RAM around. Test the RAM: RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Partition the HD in another computer or using free Partition Wizard bootable CD, create 100gb Primary partition, set it Active. If this fails, wipe the HD using Diskpart Clean Command. Test the HD using Data Lifeguard extended CD scan. We see failed new HD's sometimes.
You can also move the HD to another machine to install Windows 7 then SysPrep it before moving it back to target machine: SysPrep to move HD to another computer
