Hey everyone,

    I have a problem. I have an A8N-VM/S mobo. I know its old. I am trying to load win 7 on it and the "No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation." I tried an official win 7 pro dvd, I tried a bootable win 7 usb and still no luck. I went to Asus' website and click on win vista64 OS and only drivers available was the ACPI, and BIOS drivers. 

 

My conclusion is that this mobo is so old and it wasn't meant to have win 7 installed on it. If anyone has ever ran to this issue or anything similar, some feedback or advice would be much appreciated

Are the drives are detected in BIOS?  Make sure the SATA ports are enabled. You may want to get a new CMOS battery and use the jumper to clear CMOS too. Here is the Manual

Edit: The only mass storage drivers I have found for the nforce 410/430 are for Vista and XP. It seems Windows 7 should have those as part of the OS.

 

Edit: If the drives are detected in BIOS and SATA ports enabled,  I found this. Hopefully you can strip out the basic sata drivers out.

Hey JonC_21,

  I really appreciate the reply. I tried to install the drivers from the link you sent me, but it was a no go. So I decided to grab a laptop hd laying around install win 7 on that then create an image and transfer it to the 3.5" HDD that I want Win 7 to be installed on. 

 

Thanks
