I am trying to reinstall windows and have an error from both a USB bootable .iso and a install CD stating that I need the SATA drivers to continue. I cannot seem to find the proper driver or how I would even go about it.
I have a EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard and an intel i5-3570k chip.
I have tried both drivers from EVGA's website for SATA6 and E-SATA also a driver from this Intel link. Only the Intel download was recognized but it was not accepted as a valid driver by the install.
Is there a specific driver from the link I should get? Is there a way I can tell what I need?
I ask this question specifically from an error I am encountering while installing windows 7. It gives me a very cryptic error message
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
From research I think that it wants SATA drivers and from a previous comment discussion linked here, another user believes the same.
I am asking what driver this error message is asking for.
