HP OS/Software :: Pavilion Dv6 / Windows 7 SATA Storage Driver?
May 28, 2014
I've recently purchased a new hard drive and continuously recieve an error message when I try to install the software for it. Here is the exact issue I'm having: [URL] .......
I've confirmed the BIOS is locked in AHCI on my laptop model, so the solution is to update the SATA storage driver to the latest native Microsoft driver, but I don't know how to do that. The only driver available on my system is "Intel(R) ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller"
Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (Fresh Install)
Laptop Model: HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC
Hard Drive: Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive
Error: Unsupported/Incompatible SATA storage driver
Driver to Update: Intel(R) ICH8M-E/ICH9M-E SATA RAID Controller
While trying to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology(IRST) Driver on my Lenovo G560 Windows 7 64bit OS it is not able to install and gives me some error regarding hardware not match or etc. error then i came to know that to install AHCI driver i have to change in BIOS Sata controller mode from 'Compatible' to 'AHCI' i tried so and then restart the system but it gives BLUE SCREEN error while windows startup logo and restart again, any solution to use Rapid Storage Technology on G560 and actually this driver was installed when i purchased the new laptop but after certain format and fresh windows installation its no more able to install, how to install it back..........
if anybody has gotten to run Windows 2000 somehow on a Vaio with an Intel ich9 SATA controller? Sony/Intel provide a driver that works fine with XP, but it does NOT work with Win2000. I really want to install Windows 2000 on my new Vaio.
Have done a clean install of VISTA HP. Keep being prompted to install driver for "Mass storage controller". Device manager shows it with yellow exclamation mark. Windows cannot locate a driver. Looked on the Acer site but unsure what to install for this one.
Device manager just calls it "other device" Acer Aspire 9301awsmi.

My hard drive was formatted; everything, recovery and all. I went to install Win 8 back on it from a CD I have, it go's all the way thru the steps up to where you you pick a Drive to install on, and a messege appears saying; No Hard Drive detected- install Mass Storage Driver for detection of Hard Drive. What I need to install, and where to get it. It will not install an Operating system for the life of me.
My 5 months old SSD crashed and I replaced it with a Macrium created mirror. Everything seems to work except the computer no longer recognizes USB drives. The USB drives are good (checked on other devices), I've removed and reinstalled all USB hubs and drivers - the chip drivers and bios are up to date and the USBs are enabled in the BIOS AND I've done several virus scans (online and local) in safe mode (Malwarebytes, Spybot, ESET, Defender, AVG, Housecall). The USBs are recognized on boot but once Win7 boots the USB for storage devices no longer work.... however, the USB recognize keyboards and the mouse. Guessing a new OS install will fix it, however, I would rather not reinstall everything.
I got a T430s with the nvidia nvs 5400m and when i try to update drivers etc via the lenovo system update I got a message that I should update the Intel rapid storage driver to 18.104.22.1686, and that isn't even the latest version, but anyway I mark the update and let it install and then reboot. But when I search for updates I have to update the same driver to the same version I just installed. I have tried to remove the driver via device manager, but without results.
I have looked everywhere and even found some SATA drivers that worked for other Acer SATA laptops, but not the 3050. I looked at other posts for the 3050 on this forum which helped me get other drivers, but not the SATA drivers.
I am trying to install windows xp sp3 on a hp laptop 2000-2c17cl in legacy mode. Unfortunately xp will not detect the hard drive without the correct SATA drivers without blue screening ( even in legacy boot specified in the bios. ) I cannot find the corect drivers for this laptops hard drive
Okay so my system blue screened and so I am attempting to reinstall windoes 7 tho In bios it appears there is no HDD only my small 32 gig sdd appears. When I try to search for the device driver ill also mention that it says drive C is not formatted, Anyways, how do I install device driver to reformat harddrive so that I may reinstall windows7? Have I gotten some kind of virus? I use avast and did not notice any trouble until blue screen.
I bought HP pavilion dm1 4300ec with windows 8 preinstaled. I wiped up win 8 and install windows 7 proffesional 64 bit with SP1. After installation i manualy installed all drivers and everything works fine except my USB 3.0 port. Other two USBs (USB 2.0) on the right-hand side of computer work fine, but the on on left-hand side is just a useless hole. I have read a lot of similar threads and i installed a lot of drivers for different models but noone of them did work.
Since there are no a pack of drivers for win 7 for my laptop (because it is created for win 8) i am hopeless, which driver i have to install to get my USB 3.0 work. I really need that port and i really dont want to use windows 8.
I researched I need the Intel SATA AHCI Driver for performing a clean Windows 7 installation
1. Mobile Express Chipset SAAT AHCI controler drivers from the (a) Intel websites (b) Lenovo website and (c) extracting drivers from running system 2. tried supplying drivers on DVD/CD and USB 3. tried to integrate drivers into Windows 7 Installation using RT7Lite 4. did bios update 5. switched from AHCO to compatible mode
In any case it finds the driver as the correct one (when I click hide drivers that are not compatible, the one remains). But always displays no driver found and doesn't continue setup.
This seems to be a bug!!! 1. Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean Windows 7 installation without recovery? 2. Am I trying the wrong driver, but have to install a driver for a different device first???
I am about to replace the HDD with an SDD and there can not use recovery!
I have a HP Pavilion dv6700t and I'm looking in the bios to set the the sata controller to legacy mode so I can secure erase my SSD. Trouble is there's nothing there to do it. Question is, does anyone know how to set the controller to legacy mode?
I have recently reformatted my HP 15-g029ca Notebook PC and installed Windows 7 64-Bit. However, it seems that I am missing some of the drivers as several functions of the laptop are not working (Wifi, USB etc.).
I have checked the device manager and all the items under the "Other Devices" have little "!" marks next to them (when i right-click and select properties, under "Device status" it says: "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)...".
"Network Controller-!" "Ethernet Controller-!" "PCI Device-!" "SB Bus Controller-!" "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller-!"
I have an HP Pavilion dv6835nr which is running fine and need to get Windows 7 device drivers for the machine but I have not seen them on HP's website and I get the impression that they will not created device drivers for Win 7.
know if the XP or Vista device drivers will function under Windows 7 32-bit?
