ProBook 440 G3: Problem installing Win7 on ProBook 440 G3 - HARD drive not found

When I install Windows 7 on this PC it does not detect the HARD disk drive. If I choose the most recent version, it can detect.

I was wondering when I try to install windows 7 it always require driver, I click on browse then it shows my drive on the HARD drive to find the driver, but it does not list in the place we choose to install OS.

How can I do to install window 7?

See if it works...

I discovered that apart Intel chipset USB 2.0 support Skylake chipset.

This means that windows installs the drivers normal USB will not work.

The Microsoft Windows DVD ISO not the USB 3.0 drivers natives either.

Therefore, add USB 3.0 drivers in the Windows ISO file.

Intel has on it.  They have a utility that does all the work for you.


Run this and point to your Installation USB support and, hopefully, W7 will be installed.

  • Hard drive not found - installing WXP on Equium P200

    Dear all

    I have an Equium P200 with Vista. I decided to remove vista and install windows XP. I put the XP and it goes through a verification process, I guess. At the end of the audit and after I pressed the button to install XP, I get the message "hard drive not found on this computer. Help me with as I want to install XP, my laptop?


    The XP operating system could not find the HARD drive because you have not installed the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.
    It is a SATA driver is needed t install the XP.

    During the operating system installation process, you will need to press the F6 key to include the external USB FDD drive SATA driver.

    It you don t have a USB FDD drive then nLite software could be a solution.

  • HP Pavilion 17-g101nu: installation of Win7 Hard Drives NOT FOUND

    I just bought a new HP Pavilion 17-g101nu and tried to install Win7 on USB.

    During installation, there is no drive to sellect as when the operating system must be installed.

    What can I do?

    I found people on the use of the internet a sort of burnt laptop drivers CD and then install them while on the process of installation of the window. Who will also work?

    I have also not found any settings in the BIOS on the formats of SATA and so on.

    I thank the of for playback.

    (I have no idea if this is the right place to ask, but just bought this laptop with only of BACK).


    First you must make sure that you have entered in the BIOS and enabled legacy mode that must disable secure boot.

    Then see if the response marked resolved in the link below allows you to install W7 from your USB key.

    Your laptop is the same chipset and the 6th series of processor gen like the one referenced in the message.


  • Alienware x 51 try re-installing drive HARD drive not found

    I have an Alienware x 51 which caused me a few problems. When I turn on my computer, it shows me a black screen with the following text: "drive hard internal not found to fix this problem, try reinstalling the drive. No bootable device. Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 to enter setup Menu, F5 to enter PSA"

    F1 restarts and returns me to this screen

    When I press F2 it sends me to the installation Menu, once if I hit the ESC key and exit without saving my computer starts and allows to connect me, etc.

    I tried reinstalling the drive and finally hit a brick wall. Any thoughts?


    Have you tried to run the PSA test? If this isn't the case, please do so to confirm if you receive errors. Also check in Bios (to access the Bios, the tap button F2 when starting) in order to confirm if the drive is detected it.

  • Satellite P200-1EE - hard drive not found if I try to install XP

    Hi I have a problem.

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite P200-1EE laptop computer series (of all things) running Vista and nothing else problems so im trying to install XP Professional and crush Vista.

    But whenever I try to install it says "disc not found... no access to.
    I heard about such problems before something as a "block of software Protocol.

    Any suggestions?


    Why you n t search forum before starting a new topic?
    I mean you will find hundreds of discussions on this question here in the forum and you will find the solution to your problem in a few minutes.

    Well, the reason for this is because you need the SATA drivers before installing Windows XP. As far as I know that your laptop is equipped with an Intel chipset and so you have the Intel Storage Manager. You can integrate the drivers of external floppy drive or nLite [].

  • No hard drive not found when installing Windows 7

    I have a HP Envy 4 - Ultrabook 1046tx and the operating system Windows 64-bit 8.1. While downgrading to Windows 7 64 bit I was unable to find the hard drives. In the installation screen it showed me "no hard drive found. Click on load a driver to provide a driver for installing mass storage.'.»

    I downloaded all the versions (from most recent to oldest) technology Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers and I tried install one by one but they do not work and the hard drives are still not visible. But if I use a Windows 8 install disc and install the driver drives are visible.

    I need my computer to display the default hard drives without the need for a SATA driver. How do I do that? My Intel chipset manufacturer and model is Ivy Bridge HM77.

    Can someone help me solve the problem please?

    Thanks in advance!

    I tried a lot of things these steps. But this has not worked for me. Might work for others. I'm sticking with Windows 8.1 for awhile and I will continue to find other ways. If I find the solution will immediately post the solution in this thread. Thanks to Paul_Tikkanen for helping me!

  • I try to install XP but computer says no hard drive not installed drive. Is that my hard drive bad?

    I have a gateway lap top that gave me and it has windows vista. I train download XP Pro, but when I press on enter, after starting from the cd, he says he is not any hard drive & to check if it is enabled. If it can mean my hard drive is not good? I don't know where to look in the bios and see if it recognizes. He shows me the ram, but I don't see anything on a hard drive in the bios.

    See the post of Bruce Chamber.

    If you have a SATA drive, you

    need to use a floppy disk to load the SATA driver (and the laptop probably doesn't have a floppy disk)


    change the setting in the BIOS so that the drive uses "Legacy" or IDE compatibility"mode or disable mode"SATA Native. "


    create an installation CD slipstreamed that integrates the SATA drivers.  See, for example, if you chose this option, ImgBurn is a good free utility to create ('burn') the CD once you used nLite to create the ISO file.

  • Hard drives not found when you try to install Windows Server 2008

    Hey guys and girls,

    I've spent the last 20 hours, trying to solve the problem of not being able to install windows server 2008 r2 on a new Dell server.

    My configuration is:

    Dell PowerEdge R310

    4 x 1 TB 7.2 K SATA HDD

    Controller Raid PERC H700

    I can't even install the drivers that I downloaded from the Dell support site because Windows Server 2008 Setup will not recognize them.  These factors include the Raid Controller, chipsets Intel, SATA etc.

    I used the settings default, all changed the Auto Off Ports and vica versa, I put the server in Raid and ATA mode with all the possibilities, but it will be will not detect any HD!

    Please help, as it is essential for my health, employment and mental health.

    Best regards

    Sami L.

    What OS?  What RAID controller?  How many discs?  The size?  RAID level?

    I can't assume that everything is the same, especially when you have a different system altogether which does not support the H700 (so the files would have been meaningless even if Dell had not broken links). :)

  • HP Probook s 4530: HARD drive crashed - no possibility of recovery of windows 7

    Dear Sir

    A few weeks ago my hard drive crashed, it was not possible to repair the HARD disk, so I ordered a new HARD drive.

    I thought that I was able to download and install Windows 7 onto the new HARD drive with the product on the back of my laptop, but when I try to download it from the Microsoft Web site I get a message saying that there is a problem with the request for approval. In further research, this can only for commercial versions, not pre-installed versions.

    So, how can I get Windows 7 now on my laptop?

    Product: Laptop HP 4530 s

    Series: CNU1263BN9

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (x 64)

    If I need to provide more information please let me know.

    Kind regards



    You will need to contact HP in the country you live in and order a set of recovery discs for your laptop.

    Have the serial number handy to give to the customer service rep.

  • Bluetooth device driver not found after accidental uninstall (Win7 64 bit)

    I use a Plantronics M50 bluetooth headset on my mobile, Skype etc. All troubleshooting yesterday (had a problem with the microphone volume is very low) I followed a few steps of an article if found on a Microsoft forum, telling me to uninstall the driver, as well as to restart my laptop (Win7 64 bit) would recognize and re - install the driver.

    In Device Manager, I right-click on the M50 (under audio, video and game controllers) device and chose to uninstall (as prescribed in the MS article). Here's where I shot myself in the foot; I ticked the box "Delete the driver for this device" (thinking that Win7 would get a fresh driver from Windows Update to reboot)

    After the reboot, my laptop started to reinstal the driver device, but for "Bluetooth device" reports "no driver not found"

    I myself tried in vain things:

    • tried to find the driver, but isn't available (plug-and-play)
    • installed software (incl. Plantronics Control Panel) Plantronics package
    • I tried Windows Update
    • installed Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 Driver (as advised on various sites to set "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" reports questions 'no driver found'

    At the hope that someone had a suggestion for what else to try, or maybe how to find out what that exactly that I deleted by choosing 'delete the driver for this device '.

    Thanks in advance!


    Just in case it helps, I noticed that the following folder is created at the time of uninstal and reinstal, containing calisto.inf, calisto. PNF and


    I decided to use Sytem Restore to restore my system to before I uninstalled the driver. There are a few downsides to this, but so far the benefits outweigh them.

  • How to install Windows 7 on the new hard drive?

    I changed the old hard drive (500 GB) with a new hard dirve (1 Tera) and now I have two problems:-

    1. how to install Windows 7 on a new hard drive?

    2. my laptop came preinstalled Windows 7 Pro, but all the DVD kit (disk reclaimer Application & discs) + Revocer operating system, which has been provided (by Lenovo) for the laptop is in the Windows 8 Pro. So, how to install Windows 7 Pro, my laptop while all the DVD sets are in Windows 8 Pro?

    either way, this is my laptop spec (for reference); -

    * Note *.
    I intend to install Windows 7 Pro on my new hard drive using another DVD of Windows 7 (not DVD provided by Lenovo), but how do all Leveno program located in the disk 'Application & recuperator readers' (by example; - Lenovo system health and Diagnostics, Lenovo Power Control, Lenovo Fingerprint Reader) to install this hard drive? (as I told you before, all the DVD kit is at or only for Windows 8 Pro)

    I hope someone will help me answer my question,
    Thank you

    I found the solution.

    Response to question 1; using a recovery & backup software to clone my current operating system, and then transfer them to my new hard drive.

    Response to question 2; Download all drivers and software (all the application that located on the DVD of the kit I have) on the official website of Lenovo.

    or another solution, send to a computer service shop and let the experts (workers) install it for me (the most simple and sure way).
