I have been trying 2 days straight to get to the bottom of this problem, so any help would really be appreciated.
I am currently on Windows 7 Home 32-bit, trying to re-install to Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have downloaded Win7 Pro from Microsoft's MSDN academic alliance, as I can get it free through my University.
My specs are as follows:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 840 Processor, 3200 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M68MT-S2
GPU: MSI GTX560 TI
PSU: Coolermaster 550W
HDD: WesternDigital 640gb (SATA)
DVD Drive: Sony LabelFlash (SATA)
Both the hard drive and dvd drive go direct to the motherboard.
The problem: Windows setup begins, I select my language, keyboard setup etc. I then click start, and after a few moments of loading the error appears. Something like "The dvd/cd drive drivers are missing, please browser for the drivers".
I have tried the following:
- Launched setup from Disk.
- Launched setup from USB stick.
- Tried all 32 and 64 bit drivers for my motherboard
- Turned off automatic driver signature on startup
- Tried multiple ISO's
- Disconnected the DVD drive while attempting from USB
I have read online about altering the AHCI settings in the BIOS, however there don't seem to be any for mine! I Have looked everywhere and they are not there.
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
