Installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on new Sandisk Ultra Plus SSD which will replace a crashed and unusable HD in my HP Touchsmart TM2-US1070 laptop.
I ran a BIOS HD test and it obviously detected the drive and tested it - 100% okay.
I set the BIOS boot order to boot from USB Windows 7 reinstall on a flash drive.
I set the BIOS boor order so the HD is second in line.
Windows 7 install gets to point where it asks where I want to install and no drive is displayed. I try to format C: and Windows cannot format C:\
Do need to provide SATA drivers? Where can I get them? Please help. I’ve killed a day of my life on this.
