New system build with Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3(v1.1), AMD FX8350 4.0Ghz/8core, Vertex4SSD, Gigabyte GeForce GTX660 2GB video, 500wPSU, Win7 Home Premium/64.
System ran/loaded/updated fine for about 6 hours then crashed during game play.
BIOS/Windows unable to recognize SSD, unable to re-install Windows - get as far as "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"
that is followed by:
"To install the device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files, and then click OK"
I have burned CD\DVD's and USB flash drive files for a couple of days now looking for the "device driver", but I still hang up at the same screen.
I have switched SATA/power cables, reseated memory (crucial Ballistic 2x(2x4)DDR3 PC3-1(16GB total)/video card, installed a WD Caviar Black 1T HDD (not recognized), (re)Flashed the BIOS to F9 from the Gigabyte sight (system had the most current version/flash was successful - no problems with that)but....no luck!!
Tried a system recovery disc from another Win7 system - no drive/driver....
