I researched that I need the Intel SATA AHCI Driver for performing a clean Windows 7 installation
1. Mobile Express Chipset SAAT AHCI controler drivers from the (a) Intel websites (b) Lenovo website and (c) extracting drivers from running system
2. tried supplying drivers on DVD/CD and USB
3. tied to integrate drivers into Windows 7 Installation using RT7Lite
4. Did bios update
5. switched from AHCO to compatible mode
In any of the above cases only the system identifies the one correct driver (when I click Hide drivers that are not compatible that one particular file comes up.
However I get a prompt that no driver is found and set-up is then aborted.
Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean installation?
Windows 7 does not come with USB 3 support out of the box and hence, this happened.
One of the community users shared this workaround:
Do not use the USB 3.0 ports for installation.
Use a DVD instead.
Use also the USB 2.0 port.
