What files did you put on your flash drive?

It's not the right driver.

You need to look at those under the SATA RAID section.

Make sure you use a sub 2Gb flash stick.

So my 8GB one isn't sufficient?

I just extracted the Chipset / VGA / SATA RAID to the flash drive and plugged it in.

Hi

Are the file unzip?

You may need to make windows look in the Sata folder.

You will see a window like this:

I just tried to put in my motherboard disc and load drivers from there and I got the same result.

And what is the file type for drivers?

Tried booting with a USB drive but it looks like it's not recognizing my hard drive. I can't find my hard drive anywhere in my bios. I just checked to make sure all of the cables were plugged in to no avail.
