I have a DVD copy of windows 7 that has worked for years and now I'm getting a "no drives were found" message during install.
I have tried loading the drivers with a USB key but the laptop does not see them even when I uncheck the hide unrelated drivers option.
The laptop is only a year old and the hard drive has been formatted.
Any suggestions ?
