Can't find signed drivers

I'm at the end of my rope here.

I'm trying to install Home Premium 64bit on a computer I just built. I get to the point where it looks for a mass storage device to install on and I get this message:

No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok.

I've downloaded the proper drivers onto a flash drive, and Windows recognizes them when I attempt to install them. I click "next", but then it brings me back to the blank driver screen. It can't find my hard drive, even though it recognizes C: when I browse for files.

I've gone into command prompt and performed CHKDSK on C:, which it completes. Wtf?

I have a Western Digital Caviar Black hard drive that is recognized in the BIOS and, according to Microsoft, is compatible with Windows 7. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibi...vices&sc=Ha rd%20Drives%2C%20Internal&os=64-bit

I've read of a way to disable device signatures in the command prompt by entering

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

....but it doesn't work.

Can anyone help me?

P.S. I have the same problem trying to install 32bit.

Can you post some system specs like RAM, CPU, Motherboard, Video Card, and what not?

FWIW: Drivers don't have to be digitally signed...in order to work properly.

I would have installed the drivers from the desktop, not a flash drive.

Head here for GA-MA785GM-US2H (rev. 3.3) drivers for your motherboard.

I posted my problem in this forum a few days ago but I didn't find a solution.

Here's a link to a video of the problem I'm experiencing:

I'm about to take out my quality control hammer if I can't find a solution to this soon :huh:
