Hello Friends.
I am new to this website and i have a problem regarding installing my windows.

When the Setup Asks me to select the drive in which i have to install the OS, I do not get any options to select.

I am not able to select the drive and i just get the information that I will need Storage Drivers.

I have looked on the internet and have found no working Solutions.

I have tried installing Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 8.1
But no use.

I need help. Thanks in advance.

Clean install or upgrade installation? Do you make sure the drive is connected to the motherboard?

CPU: Intel i7-8700K 5.3 GHz ------ RAM: 32GB TridentZ 3600 MHz CL16 ----- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximus X Formula ----- GPU: Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Amp! Extreme ----- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 1TB -- Samsung 850 Pro 2TB x4

At this point the 1st step I would recommend something similar to batman1234.  


Cut all power sources to the laptop - take out the battery and unplug your AC Adapter - then reseat the hard drive.  


Your system may not be detecting it, in which case that might actually solve that issue.
