while installing windows on my system, every time the system gives this error:
"Windows setup could not configure windows to run on this computer Hardware"
The service center says that the SATA driver is missing.

If you have an older pc 2010 or earlier then you may have an "AF" hard drive you are trying to install and it may not be compatible. Need a non-AF hard drive. "AF" stands for advanced format. There would be a "AF" logo on the hard drive itself. Need 512 byte sector hard drive. This was the problem when I tried to upgrade my hard drive on my HP computer model name: HPE-240f

Wasted my whole day figuring this out
