Windows 7: HDD Problem on Seven

25 Feb 2010   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

If I was a betting man then I'd bet that either your flashed the wrong bios update or your bios settings are not correct.

Ask one of your techie friends to come over and verify your version and settings.

Oh yes,

WIN | type MSINFO32 | Enter

WIN denotes that key with the funny looking wavy flag.

This will show your bios version and much, much more.

Like previous poster said, check bios settings are correct for sata install because everything will be set back to bios defaults!

Are you using a SATA hard drive?

If you reflashed your bios and you have a SATA drive, you might have to find the correct/updated SATA Driver. They are on the Promise/Silicon Image websites.

Try reinstalling the Sata driver over the top of your present one in case it's corrupted.

The bios update is OK. I take it from Gigabyte, and was functional. The only thing that I can done is to reisntall the SATA drivers for the mainbord, but not with the drivers provide by Gigabyte

Right-click on the device where you want to update/delete driver.
Choose Properties
Drivers tab.
Choose the appropriate button from the list given.
If you've got the wrong driver installed, then choose the Uninstall. Exit out of there.
Restart your computer and see if Windows doesn't install a driver for you.

Doesn't work as you say but the start was good. It just must to select update the driver and chouse one driver from existing in the system (in my case the existing one (generic driver)) and PROBLEM SOLVED. This means that in this moment the 2 years old Gigabyte drivers are not compatible with seven.
All the best.
