I have a new GTX-Z87-UDH4 mobo with a 128 GB SSD (sata 6 gb/s), 8GB ram @ 1600 MHZ.
Installation media is a DVD Windows 7 Ultimate N reading from a SATA Blue Ray Burner.
I have used the DVD to install windows 7 on my laptop. I will be using a different key (thanks MSDN!) for the desktop.
Setup loads fine, gives me a message about dvd drivers are missing. Initial research shows this is more related to the SATA hard drives / MOBO. Any system guys out there that have come across this before?
I've tried Setting the mode to IDE. No help.
The board only takes SATA connections and I don't have a card for IDE.
I've tried loading the SATA 8 /220 drivers from both the mobo CD rom (failed, saying contact the vendor) and the gigabyte site (worked, but no devices found). Weird that the error message is about the DVD rom when it can be read from. When I installed the Sata 8 drivers the CD rom disappears from the browse until the next setup run.
Looking for some other suggestions to get 7 up and running. Any and all help greatly appreciated.
