I can't get it installed! I get to the part where it asks me what drive or partition I want it on and there is nothing there. fine, this happens while installing xp as well, you know the part where it says press f6... so i have to do that and load the mobo drivers for the sata hdd. np, i have the floppy and a drive laying around just for this reason. so I'm at the part asking me what drive and of course there are no drives so I put the floppy in and click load driver, browse to the A drive, click ok and I get an error "no signed drivers could be found...". so i un check the box that says hide drivers not compatible with my system, try again and nothing. so now what?? ugh, here are my specs

asus k8v-se deluxe (currently have mythbuntu installed)
amd64 3200
300gb Maxtor sata hdd
1.5gb ram
etc...

Are you installing this from desktop or from disk from boot?

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

i would use a thumbdrive instead of the floppy for vista and win7
did you get vista drivers for the mobo and sata/ide controller. most vista drivers will work in win7

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Hi there

Do you have a partition on your hard drive with NTFS prepaired,If you don't and you only have the LINUX format on your hard drive Windows will not find anything there.

Make a new partition or use another hard drive to install Windows7.

leastcmplicated you can use Vista drivers for windows 7 you just have to install them in compatibilty mode.Just like starting an ap with Admin rights in Vista(right click the icon and click run in capable mode or something like that).Im about to reinstall windows 7 again.I had two HD's die on me so i had to reinstall Vista on my smaller drivers that orignally had windows 7 on them.And you dont need sata or raid drivers installing windows 7 or Vista.No need to hit F6 in vista or W7

Just reinstalled windows 7 64 bit.You need to right click on the exe. and then run troubleshootcompatiabilty.You can do this with any driver or ultility for Vista to make it work in Windows 7

I had a similar issue.

Windows 7 would not install on a blank drive. I had to first have a partition laid out and formatted before 7 would do anything with it.

Unformatted, it would see the drive (didn't have to load any drivers) but it wouldn't format it or anything else.
