This brings us back to the "verbatim" part. Remember - I cannot see what you see.

What exactly did it say? Something like "No drivers found" OR "This doesn't match your hardware"

You have one option remaining AFAIK.

We need to ID your specific HD controller chipset and go the manufacturer.

Get this tool CPUID
CPU-Z 1.52 setup
(with install, includes 32 & 64-bit binaries)

We need the data from the tab MAINBOARD
