I am trying to install Windows 7 on my hard drive, but the installer tells me that I need the driver "Promise Technology Inc. Ultra IDE Controller".

I'm trying to install Windows 7 on a (40.1 GB) partition on my hard drive, but the installer tells me that I need the driver (Promise Technology Inc. Ultra IDE Controller.  I searched the Internet and tried several, but no results.  Can someone point me in the right direction.  I have a box to open with Technical Support, but not a lot of help out there.

Thanks in advance

original title: installation of Windows 7

Hey Joe,

I suggest that you visit the gigabyte website for your region (and/or the site global http://www.gigabyte.com/?f=g ) and check your motherboard for compatibility with Windows 7.

The problem you are experiencing would imply that Windows 7 has no native driver support for your disk controller, so if Gigabyte don't have drivers that you are locked unless you buy a discreet disk controller that is compatible Windows 7.

Please mark this as useful or response if applicable.

On the other hand, you have this posted in a forum of Windows XP when it is really a problem of Windows 7.

  • NTLDR is missing - when you try to install Windows 7 on another hard drive

    I have a PC Compaq Presario SR2027X a/w Win XP Media Center Edition SP3 installed.  I downloaded and installed the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to determine if WIN 7 would go on my system.  The airport of Win 7 Upgrade Advisor said that I could install Win 7.  I bought Win 7 32 bit and 2-1 GB PC5300 memory sticks.  I first installed the memory and booted up the system.  Everything worked well.  BIOS has seen the new memory and I have not encountered any error.

    I then turning the system off and removed the HDD (120 GB Sata).  I installed another hard drive (160 GB Sata) which had been restructured and ready to use.  The BIOS detects the hard drive and the BIOS has been changed for a start of the OPTICAL drive.  I then placed the WIN 7 32-bit software disk in the OPTICAL drive and saved the changes in BIOS and rebooted the system.  I was expecting to see the normal WIN 7 screens during the installation.  Instead, I got "NTLDR is missing, press CTRL + ALT + DEL to restart".

    Then I tried pressing ESC during boot to enter the boot menu.  Once in the boot menu, I select the optical drive and now I get the message "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND press ENTER".  I opened and close the optical drive optical drive light lights up, and I then press on enter.  I get the same message on "DISK BOOT FAILURE,...» ».

    I built more than 40 PC and have never had this problem.  Is there something unique about Compaq/HP PC's that prevents me to install WIN 7 on another hard drive that is not the original hard drive came with this pc?

    HP / Compaq computers are no different from any other computer on the market. You can install Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 on almost all made within the last 7 years.

    I think that your problem is due to a failure of CD/DVD drive or disk installation of Windows 7 corrupt or unbootable. Please check that the CD/DVD drive is fully functional and functional as should be. Also, check that your Windows 7 disc is free of errors and that it is bootable. If necessary, you can download a Windows 7 SP1 ISO from HERE and HERE and also download Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool.

    At the same time uninstall Windows Update KB2871389 and then put it back solves the problem for most people who have tried.

    You can uninstall it by going to programs and features and by clicking on "View installed updates" at the top to the left. You will need to scroll the list to find it. Then right-click on it to get the option uninstall.

    There was much more updated since then however... It's the initial update that is required for the upgrade from 8.1 to be available in the store...

  • Cannot install windows XP it said hard drives are not connected & windows can not find the hard drives

    I got an asus computer notebook windows vista, upgrade from vista to windows 7, now I'm not able to do a clean install of windows xp, when I try to install XP, it says that hard drives are not connected & windows cannot find not the hard drives, so once again installed windows 7, is there a way to overcome this problem Why do I get the message windows xp does not detect hard drives? I even formatted the hard drive & tried to install Xp, but still, I get the same message.

    The answers will be appreciated...

    Thank you

    Because the Windows XP installation CD does not have the necessary disk controller drivers.  You will need a floppy drive to provide the drivers of controller for the installation program, or you will need to burn a CD of Windows XP with the controller drivers slipstreamed into the installation.  A CD of Windows XP with SP2 included may have the necessary drivers.

  • install windows on a new hard drive

    Hi, my laptop has been commissioning so I bought a new hard drive and installed myself. The problem is that I don't have the recovery disks that came with it when we bought it. How can I install windows 7 or vista on the new hard drive.

    If your computer comes with a qualifying previous license such as Windows Vista or Windows XP and the certificate of authenticity is still attached to the machine in good condition, then the COST is reason enough to represent the compliance to the software license agreement. No previous required software installation, which means you can do a clean install with Windows 7 Upgrade disk.

    Click Install now
