I am currently attempting to re-install windows 7 on my HP Pavilion h8-1234 computer and I need help in identifying what drivers am I missing for the windows re-installation process.
I downloaded windows 7 from http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso and burned it as an image to a DVD-R using ImgBurn software. The windows installer menu displays the following issue with missing drivers:
Load Driver A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step.
I identified the DVD drive as a Hp DVD A DH16ACSH SCSI CdRom and downloaded the corresponding driver from http://www.driverscape.com/download/hp-dvd-a--dh16acsh-scsi-cdrom-device unto my usb. I picked the following driver version to download :
Driver Version: 6.1.7600.16385 Release Date: 2006-06-21 File Size: 77.34K Supported OS: Windows 7 64bit
I plugged the usb into the HP Pavilion h8-1234 during the windows installation process and navigated through the folder browser to select the Hp DVD A DH16ACSH SCSI CdRom driver to be used to run the windows installation prcoess. Below is the folder browse to get to the Hp DVD A DH16ACSH SCSI CdRom driver :
Computer Removable Disk (C:) cdrom.inf_amd64_neutral_8363d00ecae4322d
I received the following message from the windows installer :
No new devices could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media.
I navigated the HP website, but could not find the Hp DVD A DH16ACSH SCSI CdRom driver. Does any know where I can download the required Hp DVD A DH16ACSH SCSI CdRom driver? Is it possible to just copy it from the windows operating system instead? Thanks.
