windows seven HD sata

Hi

I want to know if windows seven has the same problem of windows Xp for instyallation on Hd sata. Do I have to use Nlite and downloads driver sata by asus for asus striker extreme Mainboard? For windows seven I did not find driver sata for my MB?

Can You Help Me?

Is there a tutorial for this istallation? some documentation?

Thanks

PP

Not necessary to use Nlite (actually Vlite since Vista) as the Win7 installer is nearly driver-complete, particularly for SATA. Only if your HD didn't show up on "Where do you want to install WIndows" screen during install would you possibly need to insert SATA controller driver at the "Load Drivers" link using a CD or flash stick.

This covers most of it: Clean Install Windows 7

You might want to wipe your HD to get the cleanest possible slate for install: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
