As for installing without a floppy, that isn't a problem Windows 7 (and Vista as well) is more than capable of installing the driver from a USB stick, memory card, or even off of another partition or hard drive,

Clean Install Windows 7

#8, just point it to whatever device has the appropriate INF file(s) on it.
Means I need to install Windows 7 again?

Shouldn't have to, you should be able to just run the update utility and it will update any of the motherboard/chipset drivers that need it.

And also how can i check my all drivers are up to date or not? I am using default drivers now.

Thanks,

This may or not work.

1) Reset BIOS back to AHCI.

2) do a startup repair. (may need to do 3 to 4 times)

Startup Repair

if you get to Picture 1, keep going.

if you get to picture 2, load drivers for SATA.

Thanks for replies.

I will try it tonight. But do I need drivers on other CD/DVD/Floppy drive?

I don't have a floppy drive.

Thanks

You can put your drivers on Floppy, CD, or USB stick.
