Windows 7: "No Drivers were found.." Windows 7 installation

"No Drivers were found.." Windows 7 installation

I just got this laptop off of a Facebook yard-sale page for my area. They were selling it because it would not boot. I bought it home and my current Studio 1747 laptop told me i needed to format the Hard drive from the Acer before i could use it. I formatted the drive.

Now, I can install Windows 7 again, i thought. So i put in the boot disk, got to the "Choose where to install" page. But "No Drivers Were Found"

I clicked browse and all that came up was "Removable Disk (C:)", "CD Drive (D:)" and "Boot (X:)"

(C:) told me to insert a drive into Removable Disk (C:).
(X:) Said: "No signed drivers found."

So im in a stump.



Acer Aspire 5733 series

I also get the same problem, different hard drive, in a Lenovo G575.

Boot from the DVD as if you were going to install, then do this:

1. On the first Language screen, press SHIFT+F10 - a command prompt window will open
2. Type diskpart and hit enter
3. Type list disk and hit enter

Copy exactly what is now shown on the screen, and type if back here in your next reply.

OK. On the same console screen, type this:

1. select disk 0 and hit enter
2. list volume and hit enter

Report back on what is displayed.

OK. I think its best to wipe the hard disk, then format, and then attempt install. Do the following.

1. Ensure disk 0 is selected:
- type select disk 0 and hit enter
2. Now type clean and hit enter
- once its done it will return to the prompt
3. Type create primary partition and hit enter
4. Type list volume and hit enter

Report back the output.
