Windows 7: Installing W7 on Asus P5E-VM HDMI how?

Installing W7 on Asus P5E-VM HDMI how?

Hi there, first post from newbie.

I'm pretty proficient with general use on computers and I want to install Windows 7 pro x64 on my new rig.

On the Asus website driver support only goes to vista, and I have read that the vista x64 drivers are not supported for Windows 7. Can anyone give me a tutorial on how to install Windows 7 on this machine please?

I get into installation and it asks for a CD/DVD drive device driver is needed to carry on etc. I am just wondering if that is a driver for the DVD ROM or another device on the mobo.

Thanks in advance, would really appreciate the help!

The request for a device driver usually indicates a corrupt installation disk, sometimes due to a bad burn from an .iso.

Windows 7 includes lot of drivers, although not all. You may be able to find Windows 7 drivers for all of the components on your motherboard. The specs on the board are here:

I don't know where to get updated drivers for the Atheros L1 network device. Vista drivers can probably be used, in a pinch.

Where did you get Windows 7?

Confirm the ISO integrity or download another, burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed. Or write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown.

The installer is driver-complete with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for the device. Vista drivers will work for Windows 7, as stated.
