Driver for SSD

I got a new Dell Latitude E6520 and decided to switch out the Seagate HD it came with with a Samsung SSD. I'm trying to install Win7 64 bit but its asking me for a mass storage driver. I've looked at Dell's website but can't find it. Can anyone help?

OMG!!! I found out what it was. The HD was not installed correctly. The SSD is a bit thinner than the original HD it had. I noticed when I was going reinstall the original HD. I hate when you break your head to figure something out and turns out to be something so simple.

There are no SSD drivers. You must rather look drivers for the Disk controller. If it isn't included in the chipset drivers, there is usually a separate driver available. Just check the Dell website.

Looked on the Dell website and found nothing. I already went into the BIOS and changed the SATA Operation to ATA, AHCI and Raid. Still nothing.

Already tried that one and nothing. I downloaded it. Opened it and it got extracted to C:\dell\drivers\R291721. Grabbed everything in there and put it on a usb stick. When installing OS i browse to thumb drive and point at it. It sees it. Comes up as 'Intel(R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller (E:\iaAHCI.inf)' I click next but still get "No drives were found.Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"

Anything else?

Please try below step

When Windows 7 Setup has loaded and the language selection dialog is showing, press SHIFT + F10 simultaneously. This opens a command prompt:

Type “diskpart” and hit ENTER.

Type the following commands one by one – hit ENTER for each of them to run the commands:
1.      list disk (to show the ID number of the hard disk to partition, normally it’s Disk 0)
2.      select disk 0 (change 0 to another number if applicable)
3.      clean
4.      create partition primary
5.      select partition 1
6.      active
7.      format fs=ntfs quick
8.      exit

Type “exit” again to close the command prompt window.

Continue Windows 7 setup as usual. The disk should now show up in the list

Sorry try again!!! I continue the install and it gives me 'No new device could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media'


I might just put the HD back in and return the SSD.

I have had the same issue with my hard drive which originally was a Seagate, I recently switch this to a newer SSHD which had issues with the size not going all the way in. Once I found an adapter that matches the size of the original drive, it all works well.
