Cannot Locate Driver Files For Ide Controller During Upgrade Installation

I just bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade family pack which entitles me to upgrade all three of my computers, i was told. I have installed it successfully on my gateway desktop with vista home premium without a problem. I anticipate putting it into my l vista laptop.

I've tried to update another xp dell desktop, but keep running into a wall. The installation program asks me to choose a hard disk partition onto which i should install the update. One of the partitions is marked "reserved", so i choose the other. But i can go no further in the installation until i locate driver files for the ide controller.

I've tried finding such files on the windows xp disk, in cwindowssystem32drivers (since that is where device manager says they are) and on the windows 7 disk itself. So far, no matter what driver file location i have tried, i cannot get beyond that point in the installation. I realized that upgrading windows xp to windows 7 would mean losing my data and other installed programs and am willing to do so because i'd like all my computers on the same os and the use of 'homegroup'. Please advise on how to get beyond this point in the installation.

Standard Dual Channel Pci Ide Controller Driver

I am attempting to install the windows 7 rc onto my pc. The compatibility check is fine so i try the install. I choose custom because i want a fresh start, not an upgrade. When i select the hard drive (one drive, one partition), it says that "windows cannot be installed on disk 0 partition 1". The details say:

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [standard dual channel pci ide controller]. Click 'load driver' and load the required device driver. I tried copying the drivers that xp pro is using with no luck. I copy them to a flash drive and then select them in the install ui. It then just goes back to the same message.

Standard Dual Channel Pci Ide Controller Driver Upgrade Fails

I am trying to upgrade my vista ultimate 32-bit to windows 7 ultimate 32-bit. The upgrade advisor showed no issues except for itunes (which i ignore). After starting the installation i get the following message from the compatibility check and the installation aborts: the following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

For these items, make the following changes: install updated drivers for the following devices. Open control panel and search for "update device drivers". Ide ata/atapi controllers: standard dual channel pci ide controller. I tried to find a driver but no luck. Can you advise on how i need to proceed. I currently have the microsoft driver v 6. 0. 6001. 18000 dated 21/06/2006 installed

Ati 4379 Serial Ata Controller Driver Update Error

Windows update continually tries to update a driver provided by silicon image storage for ati 4379 serial ata controller. Once i got an error code 80070436. Each time the update tries, it fails. I tried to update the driver from the device mgr. In the control panel, but after searching, a message of 'you have the latest driver installed' appears! I also removed the update from the list in windows update. When i power up the computer, windows tries again to install the driver which i then cancel & again remove from the update list! 

I think this situation may have caused an earlier problem wherein vista wouldn't boot & i had to do a system restore. After my last restore (a few days ago) i started canceling the attempted update & my system now seems to boot up ok. How do i get rid of the attempted update?

Ieee 1394 Host Bus Controller Missing

I have a new dell latitude e6510 with an ieee 1394 ("firewire") port-the small 4-pin type. Soon after getting the laptop, the 1394 port worked fine with an external drive. Once i got an esata cable, i started using that drive via the laptop's esata port. A week or so later, i tried to install a digital audio interface via the 1394 port and it didn't work. Naturally, i checked the device manager, but the ieee 1394 host bus controller was missing from the tree. I am running windows 7 professional x64. I knew that a new bios update was coming from dell so i waited a few days and applied it today. Still no 1394 host bus controller.

Dell at first thought that there was a problem with the motherboard. But i used the pre-windows boot dell diagnostics utility to test the 1394 controller and it passed three tests even noting that there was no device plugged in. I then plugged in a digital audio interface and reran the tests. Again the controller passed all 3, and noted that a self-powered device was plugged in. (Incidentally, i did try the same external hard drive again via the 1394 port just to be sure that it wasn't the audio interface that was the problem. Again, no go. ) Dell now agrees that there should be nothing wrong with the motherboard (and, thus, the 1394 port) given these passed tests. So, dell recommends a fresh install of windows.

But that doesn't seem right to me. Of course, i'm not terribly keen on having to reset all my settings, reinstall software, etc. But, isn't there a way to get this device to show back up in the device manager without having to reinstall windows? (Yes, i clicked the "scan for hardware changes" button. ) Or is there a way to somehow to otherwise patch windows so that the port is recognized and thus operable again?

Edit: having browsed the other posts before posting mine, but now having reread them, it occurs to me that i should note that my win 7 install came with the computer.

Thus it is not an upgrade; similar posts to mine all address the scenario involving an upgrade. Not sure if the solution is different. Thanks again. Next day edit:i did end up getting the system to "recognize" a new unknown device. Whether that's the firewire controller is still up for debate. I did so by going to the dell support site and just started downloading and installing what was listed for my machine regardless of date (e.g. , Installing some applications which predate my machine's manufacture date).

Maybe not the most informed strategy, but my thinking was "what the _. Nothing else is working. May as well give it a go. " I got through the first 7 listed in "applications" before rebooting. After the reboot, an unknown device appeared in device manager. I then tried to update the driver for said "unknown device" by selecting an 1394 ohci compliant driver. Windows warned me that it couldn't verify that it was compatible with my hardware by i pressed forward and: bsod! Yeah. However, upon the reboot, the device listed itself as a 1394 host bus controller in device manager. Whether that's because it's what it really is or just because i tried a 1394 driver, i'm not sure; but i suspect the latter.

In any case, i tried several of the other 1394 drivers, including the legacy one and a ricoh driver (because the dell diagnostic utility listed it as a ricoh 1394 controller). In every case, bsod. Sweet. Any suggestions about which driver to install or another approach?

Ide Hard Drive Connected Via Usb To Ide/sata Adapter

I have an old maxtor 9 1303d6 ide drive which is connected via a usb to ide/sata adapter and an active usb hub. The device worked fine under vista 32 ultimate. After doing a clean install of windows 7 ultimate and subsequent updates, the device is no longer seen in windows explorer. Device manager does see the hard drive, but the usb controller section of devman now shows an unknown device.

(I suspect that this is the usb to ide/sata adapter) the device is accessible using a hard disk recovery utility which can read the maxtor drive. I've tried to unininstall/reinstall and have moved the adapter from port to another on the hub. The device returns a code 43 error and i've tried the suggested kb updates with no luck.

Copy From Ata / Ide To Hdd With Ide To Usb Cable

I am trying to transfer files from an old hard drive (xp, ata/ide drive) to my win 7 machine (w7 pro, dell laptop). I only have the hdd from the xp machine, so i cannot go in and have the user share all files, etc. I do have an ide to usb cable and a means to hook up the drive to a power source. While i was able to copy some files (music, etc. ), The actual documents (drive:documents and settings user-name) are protected. I know the password but i am not given the opportunity to enter it.

When i click on the directory, it says: you don't currently have permission to access this folder. Click continue to permanently get access to this folder. So i click continue and the address bar takes forever to load but nothing comes up. No prompt for pwd, nothing. Any ideas?

This time when i was installing my software for my printer, which worked previously and i performed printing tasks, something happened and i have have no idea what. My disk device will no longer work. It tries to install, but fails.

The usb mass storage device works, but not the usb 2. 0 dvd-rom.

I keep getting prompted to buy driver cure and driver fixers but i don't want to pay 30 - 50 dollars when i already paid for the device.

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Gigabyte Gbb36x Controller Driver

I ran the compatibility test for my system preliminary to doing the upgrade from my current vista home premium (win 7 home 32 bit upgrade already ordered from ms store), and the only issue i seem to have is that the subject driver requires attention and may not work with windows 7.

I have tried to update the driver through device manager on my pc with no success (it says the driver i have is best), i have goggled it and found a bunch of those drivers but none that say they are for windows 7, and i have gone to gigabyte's site, but no mention there that i could find (my motherboard is a gigabyte ga-ma-790x-ud4p). I am not even sure what this controller is.

Gotta pardon my ignorance, but i'm 67 yrs old, not very computer smart, and i certainly don't want to mess up my pc when i upgrade. Only time something gets fixed on it is when my kids come home (pretty infrequently).

Sata Storage Controller Driver Installation

I have a fresh install of win7 prof x64 on an 17/930 system. In trying to fix a problem with media center stuttering, i looked at my device drivers and noticed that the sata ahci controller driver that was installed by win 7 is a generic ahci driver circa 2006 (6. 1. 7600. 16385). My intel matrix storage manager has a much more recent driver available from asus for my p6x58d-e motherboard.
Question - can i install the new storage controller driver now that win 7 is already installed? If so, what is the correct process?

1394 Host Controller Driver Quit Working

Two days ago i was going to put some video on my computer from my sony handycam minidv camcorder using a firewire connection. I plugged in the camera with the firewire and windows 7 automatically installed the driver and it was successful and everything worked great. The next day i was trying to continue my work on it and when i plugged in the camera it says i need to troubleshoot the driver. When i do that windows 7 tries to fix it and of course fails. Is this a common issue with drivers on the vista/windows 7 platform? Does anybody have any tips?

Hybrid Atsc/qam Multimedia Video Controller Driver

I have a gateway lx6820-01 p/n pt. G790x. 001. I have a hybrid atsc/qam pci-e avs video capture tv tuner card. I just did a clean install from vista to windows 7 and it won't install a driver for my multimedia video controller device. I'm pretty sure that is my tv tuner card. I contacted gateway and they said i would have to update my chipset driver, but there was no support for windows 7 yet. I also went to device manager and tried to update online.

Everything else went flawless on the install except for my graphics card, but i went to the manufacturers' website and updated that driver. I would really like to get my tv tuner card working if possible. Any idea where to get the driver?

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

Atheros Ar8121/ar8113/ar 8114 Pci-e Driver For Ethernet Controller

In my event viewer, administration log i am getting constant warnings which state, "name resolution for the name isatap. Rn. Hr.cox.net timed out after none of the configured dns servers responded. " Upon running the network troubleshooter, it points to the ethernet controller, leading me to believe i need an updated driver for the atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar 8114 pci-e. I have a windows 7, 32-bit computer with an asus motherboard p5kpl-am epu. I have been unable to locate this driver when going to the asus or atheros sites. I have found a couple of sites that want me to pay to receive updated drivers but i don't trust giving them my payment info.

This is discouraging to me since i had a local computer retailer make this computer for me and it is only a week old. I guess i could take it back to them but i would like to find this driver first if i could. According to my system info, the driver i am now using it ver. 1. 0. 0. 18, dated 8/23/2009. Any help in finding an updated driver would be greatly appreciated. Also, once i find it, do i just double click it to install? I am new to this kind of thing.

Universal Serial Bus (usb) Controller Error

New home built with asus p7h57d-v evo & clarkdale i5-680 cpu. Device manager shows the usb controller is not working for lack of a driver and cannot find one. How could that be? Mb has both old and new usb 3. 0, but i don't think it is any of the mb usbs that are without driver. The case has 2 usbs, but wireless base unit and webcam seem to work in either. The only other usb is on a card reader and the webcam also works from it. So, i cannot identify any device not working and am completely puzzled about what to do next?
