I have a problem to install Windows-7 on a hard drive which was cleaned by applying
the program Wipe Drive Wizard ( www.whitecanyon.com )
The Window 7 DVD starts with loading files,then a message appears " No drives were found,
make sure the installation media contains the device drivers  "

I assume they mean the Windows-7 DVD,correct me if I am wrong.

As there are virtually hundreds of files on the W-7 DVD I wonder if
somebody could let me know which option to choose.

Or explain another method to achieve my goal.
 

Thank you

This usually happens because the Windows 7 install disk does not have the mass storage drivers for the drive controller. What is the make and model of the computer?

Thank you for your reply.

My computer is home made with a Gigabyte GA-Z77X UD5H motherboard.

O/S = Windows7

Go here and download the Intel Preinstall Driver and the Marvel Preinstall driver under the SATA section. These are self extracting zip files. Unzip the files of both to a folder on your desktop. Copy the unzipped files, not the folder, to the root of a USB flash drive.  Attach the USB flash drive and boot your install disk. When you get to the screen that says Load Driver in the lower left click it and your hard drive should be detected. I don't know if your drive is connected to the Intel or Marvel controller so download both.
