Windows 7: windows 7 installation cannot find drivers?

07 Jan 2014   #21

Windows 7 64 bit
Worked for me

I had similar problem and for some reason it wouldnt install to any of my HDs, it had nothing to do with the CD. I had to make another partition on one of my HDs and then it worked just fine. /shrugs

Did you receive a prompt for drivers? This almost always is a bad installer.

What was the exact error you received.

Always delete all partitions during the booted Custom Clean Install Windows 7 as pictured in Steps 7 and 8.

Windows 8.1 pro

Idk if it could help or not but that problem happened to me and it was fixed I guess when I used CMD from my usb installation and I just offline my HD then restarted my notebook then my partitions where there.
