I have a Toshiba Tecra R850 laptop with a failed hard drive. I have replaced the drive with a 500 GB SSD. My Windows 7-64 install media does not see the hard drive. I am well acquainted with installing the proper hard drive controller drivers having done this many times in the past, but this time nothing works. I have been to the Toshiba website and downloaded every Intel SATA AHCI or storage management driver I can find. I have been to the Intel website and done the same...nada (although I cannot find an Intel storage controller driver that supports i7 Gen 2 processors) . Does anyone have any suggestions?

Toshiba Tecra R850 (PT525C-05F01K) 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2640M vPro

I tried windows 10 install just for a laugh, and that went flawlessly so I know all of the hardware works fine. For business related reasons, however, we need to install Windows 7 on this system.
