Windows 7: Samsung DVD Drive won't install windows 7.

14 Dec 2012   #11

WIN7 Ultimate 64bit

You are loading a 64bit operating system from what I can tell.

Go back to your manual.

Find out the maker of your onboard Sata chipset
(eg >Promise< or >Silicon Image< for instance)
Go to respective maker website and download latest 64Bit RAID (not basic) Win 7 driver.
Unpack/unzip the drivers to a dos formatted usb stick.

Stick the usb stick in a port and your raid drivers should auto-load if you are lucky as you restart the Win 7 64bit dvd.

Good it dawned on you finally.

Please mark the thread as solved.

And, always, always read through the manual ( be it any product) atleast once from the first page to last page.
