Fresh Windows 10 installation on Samsung 850 -- old rig with no working HDD or SSD


Sep 12, 2017

Old SSD crashed. No longer recognized by computer (was my boot drive). Just bought Windows 10 and Samsung 850 SSD. Tried clean installation. I get the the following error:

"No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."

Problem is, according to Samsung's website, this kind of SSD should be plug & play with no driver needed. The installation CD contains only the data migration wizard software, which I do not need.

I have other 3 storage devices (2 old HDD's and an external HDD) but none of gen have an OS installed.

My MOBO is an ASRock Z77 OC formula. I no longer have the CDs that came with it.

What can/should I do?
