Cant install Win 7 64-bit to SSD, no device drivers?? Aurora R4 ALX

Jump to solution

I have a Corsair Ls 60gb SSD that i want to put my OS on (OS currently on HDD), iv tried doing a fresh install but everytime i do it asks me to plug in a flash drive or cd that has device drivers ???

 

Iv looked on dell drivers for OS deployment but it only has optional ones for monitors... am i missing something really simple here ??

 

Sorry if this seems vague.

Set BIOS to:
SATA Mode = AHCI Mode
Boot Mode = UEFI

Win7-DVD, Win-8-DVD, or USB flash should now boot. Use F12 one-time-boot menu.
