Hi ive just built a new pc and have a 250gb samsung ssd. im trying to install windows 7 ultimate 64bit.

i have the original disk and ive also tried downloading an iso online
it keeps asking me for drivers before i can install. what can i do?

my next step would be install it on a hdd then clone the drive but thats alot of extra steps
 
Hi

Is this a standard ssd or the M2 variety?
If a standard 2.5" ssd is it connected to the main disk controller
Or a secondary controller which needs a device driver and the controller may need enabling in the BIOS

regards
Mike Barnes

this is before the install straight after you press install now it appears. it gets you to locate the driver, i cant find anything on the msi website driver related that would affect it
 


are you installing it via a USB drive or DVD disk?
