I've just rebuilt a (broken) PC with 'new' (but old stock) motherboard and HD. I thought I'd 'upgrade' to windows 7 at the same time...
All was fine, until just after the MS licence agreement bit, when up pops the message "no drivers were found". The 'load driver' facility just asks for the installation media, so in goes the installation disk that came with the motherboard. This just comes up as "No signed device drivers were found". I've also tried downloading drivers from the web (using another computer) and transferring them on a memory stick, but still no joy.
My questions are these: are there some (older) motherboards which just won't run windows 7? Might Vista or XP work, where 7 won't? (I always thought the HD drivers came 'built in' with motherboards.
