I have previously installed windows7 from a bootable USB stick I have created, but I recently bought a new machine with a Z170N-GAMING 5 motherboard, so I needed to reinstall the operating system. After booting from the USB stick I received the following error
"No Drivers were found, make sure your installation media has the correct drivers" etc..
After searching the internet for answers, I found that a VIDEO that describes how Windows7 comes with outdated EHCI drivers, and describes that in order to boot from USB with this motherboard that will I need to install newly created XHCI drivers.
I searched on Gigabytes WEBSITE for the specified drivers and found:
"Intel SATA Preinstall driver (For AHCI / RAID Mode) Note: Windows setup to read from USB thumb drive"
I was able to get Windows7 to locate the driver, but got the following error during installation:
"The Intel (R) 100 series/C230 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller device driver could not be installed. Contact your vendor for an updated driver"
Oddly enough, I also tried making a bootable DVD but got the same error!
What can i do to get this install working?
