Hi
I am trying to get Vista to load on a new system. I think the problem is mobo related. I have a Gigabyte 965p-DQ6 Rev. 3.3. When I try to load Vista, the drivers it is asking for are for the raid controllers, because the Western Digital caviar RE2 500Gb HD is seen by the bios but not by Vista. When I boot Vista, after the com. code is entered, it goes to a page that askes Where do you want to install windows? At the bottom of the page it states, NO DRIVES WERE FOUND. CLICK LOAD DRIVER TO PROVIDE A MASS STORAGE DRIVER FOR INSTALATION. I have downloaded the driver and tried to install them here but it will not let me. I was told that holding the F6 key just after post but before Vista disk boots, I should be able to load the drivers here but I can't. It takes me into the boot manager with no options to load drivers. Dose any one have any ideas what to do? I have tried just about every thing I can think of. Thanks for your help and have fun, Rick

Put the SATA drivers on a floppy as the mobo manual describes. Then go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Locate the SATA controller, right click on it and select "Update driver software". In the next dialogs, tell it to search your computer (rather than on the internet) and point it to the floppy drive.

This is afresh install so I don't get a run menue. I have the drivers extracted like it says in the manual and tried to load them in the window where it can't find the drivers. It sees the drivers on the A/ drive and scans to load them but it still says it can't find the drivers for mass storage device. I went from :huh: to :huh: in one click. What can I try next? thanks and have fun, Rick

You don't need Run (although you can restore it through the Properties of the Start button). Just click once on the Start button and start typing - it really does work just like the Run command (although it runs with Standard User permissions).

You can also create a shortcut to it on the Desktop and then right click and Run As Administrator.
