Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
I am trying to install windows vista on my computer and cannot get past the screen where it asks where to install vista onto. it says, ''To install the device driver needed to acess your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files, and the click OK.'' I have looked up and down for the drivers necessary for it and cannot find them anywhere. And then, if I do find them, how am I supposed to load them? When I press browse to find the drivers it only gives me an ''X:'' drive. (boot drive?) and I cant load anything off of cd/dvd/or usb. Im thinking that it might have to do with my Maxtor Ultra ATA 100 pci controller card. any suggestions?
You need to find the drivers for the controller card.
Put the drivers onto a floppy drive. When the software asks for the drivers, use those drivers to let the OS know where to look for the hard drives.
I'm not sure if vista can load drivers off of a USB thumb drive. I havn't actually tried it yet.
Check Maxtor for the drivers you need.
