Prompting for drivers when installing windows 7 on a new PC

Hi

We have brought a new PC with a SSD hardisk ,when we install windows 7  with SP1 it is asking for drivers.The PC manufacturers have their own brand  and have used  ASUS mother board drivers ( H110M-R ) Intel H110 chipset support DVD. On the disc it says Support windows 10/7.

But when installing windows 7 it is prompting for drivers, and it gives the browse option and point to the driver disc. It says drivers not found.

I was thinking  of injecting all the drivers which is on the drivers disc  into windows 7 ISO and making it a bootable USB\DVD using  microsoft  Windows Tool.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool

Will it be possible to achieve this.
Any suggestions and help would be great.

Thanks

You mean it is asking for drivers during the install medium load?  Before you even start the Win7 install?

Or are you talking about after Win7 is installed and you've installed the mainboard's drivers there is still devices missing drivers?

If it's the former, you can download the Intel RST controller drivers from http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/misc/sata/Intel_Rapid_Storage_Win7-81-10_V14501081.zip?_ga=1.14436402.40634416.1420621890, unzip them and copy the 64bit or 32bit directory (depending on which variant of Win7 you're installing) to a USB drive.
Have that drive connected to a USB2.0 (not USB3.0) port when you boot into the Win7 installer.
When it requests for the driver, browse to the directory on the USB drive and use the driver it says suits your H110 chipset.  

It should be one of these bad boys:
SATA AHCI drivers
FYI, on ye olde Windows XP, these were known as F6 drivers as you'd have to press F6 at the right place during the installer load up to use them.

You can actually add these drivers plus others to the Windows 7 install medium, but if this is a one-off build, it's not worth the effort.

Yes, it is asking for drivers during the install medium load, before you even start of the Win7 install.
I am installing windows 7 with SP1 64bit.

Also the PC has a Kingston SSD.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

nLite.  http://www.nliteos.com/download.html
You can slipstream drivers and Windows updates.
You can almost make it completely unattended with things such as product keys, date/time/region settings, suppressing EULA acceptances and heaps more.

Create an ISO of your install disc (if you haven't already got one).  Use this ISO with nLite and save at the end giving the new ISO a new name.
Burn that ISO to DVD or use the utility you linked in your question to create a bootable USB drive and boot from that.

See the guide (http://www.nliteos.com/guide/) for more.

Not nlite.  That is for Windows XP.

Adding drivers to a Windows 7 ISO is not a task for the faint-hearted.

ntlite or vlite are the tools to use.  Guides can be found on the Internet.  But be warned that these are still beta software.

ntlite availble from https://www.ntlite.com/download/

if it's only for 1 pc - i find it faster and easier to install directly the drivers from the mobo manufacturer - Asus in your case
you find all drivers here :  https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H110M-A/HelpDesk_Download/
select your OS - 32 or 64 bit first
then start with chipset - video...

Just have a spare USB pen drive with the drivers on it (and by that I don't mean zipped, I mean already unzipped in a folder), so you can point to it when asked for. No need for the injection of drivers etc.

Did you try other USB ports? (Try to have it already there before you even start the PC)

@dbrunton - yeah you're right.  I hadn't even noticed (it's been that long since I've needed to use F6 drivers or even post install drivers.  Sorry for the bum steer.
