Preferred Solution: No signed device drivers were found

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i need help...bad...I picked up a copy of windows 8.1 yesterday (hoping to upgrade it to 10 once i got it. I also already had windows 7 on the computer, so i started the setup from the desktop) it did its thing. I typed in the product key and continued through the process. Then i got to the 'where do you want windows to install?' tab and it lets me pick which hard drive to install windows on. Thats where the problem occured, I can not for the life of me figure this out. I've got a friend who know's a ton about this stuff and i was on the phone with him for at least 2 hours last night. we cant figure it out, I've downloaded the drivers on a flash drive and it wont open. I have the motherboards CD in and it doesn't help. there are no .exe files. and I have spent hours trying to get it to work and it doesn't.

Answer:'No signed device drivers were found'

Hello Peoplearenuts Welcome to the Forums  
I don't want to say this but you didn't need to buy win8.1 to get 10; you can install windows 10 for free if you have 7.
But since you bought it​​ lets work on it.

So the first thing to do is not to do a clean install; you want to upgrade the PC threw the desktop
it will automatically assign the HDD based on what your upgrading.
 
Please don't fell bad about this we all make mistakes; believe me I have made some big ones
Also I have had that problem too so this should help you out

This is going to be difficult since I am the middle man here, but here it goes.

A few months ago I sent my friend a Windows 7 DVD for his new computer that he built, and everything went fine. Earlier this week he was building another one, using the same HDD and disk and he kept getting errors that are still unresolved. He formatted his old HDD and still didnt work, and also got a new 320 GB hdd and same problems. He cant even get Ubuntu to install. ive searched for a few hours and couldn't find a similar problem or solution. The exact error message is "No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains all the correct drivers and then click ok." Sometimes he got an error 0x8030001, not quite sure what he did to get that. Anybody have any idea about what to do?

Hi there,

As per the title:
I have the samsung NVME driver on a USB stick, the Win7 installer can see the stick and the other driver subfolders on the stick (nvme driver on root).
But, the installer finds nothing on the stick on a scan, and displays no driver on a manual search, and recognises no drivers if i simply point it at the stick an accept.

I simply get a error message from the "Load Driver" popup:
"No signed device drivers were found. Make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."
USB drive is formatted as vFAT (32?).
Tried both EUFI and normal boot from DVD drive.

Suggestions?

I have seen some of the threads listed but none have been able to get my nephew's laptop working again. It is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L450D. His hard drive got corrupted and we've lost everything. I am now trying to load windows 7 64 bit on to a brand new hard drive. I keep getting 'No Drives were found. Click load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation'.
I then press the "Load Driver" and get up 'To install the Device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files and then click OK.'
When I browse to find the drivers I've downloaded from Toshiba direct on my flash drive, I get "No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers and then click OK'
This is as far as I can go because I do not know how or where to get "signed drivers".
If someone is able to help a silver surfer to complete the installation it would be much appreciated. Thank you

Hello, I've read a few of the other posts but haven't been able to get it to work on mine yet. I'm getting the "no signed drivers were found" error when trying to install windows 7 64 bit on my new build. I don't have an old one to format the hard drive and partition it on. So my question is can I build a partition outside of the install or inside of the install? When I switch to ACHI(AHCI) which every one it is, and I go into advanced installation it gives me the option for new partition but there are 0 MB available to do this with. I've put my comp specs into my profile. Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. When my old desktop crashed I had a working laptop so I has been years since I've had a 2nd desktop to work with.

Put the Dvd in the computer when you get to the screen where it asks you where you want to install Windows . Hold down Shift and press F10 . You will then have a command prompt Window and type in these commands



   Note
Press < ENTER > after every command

Type DISKPART
Type LIST DISK
Type SELECT DISK 0

Type CLEAN


Type CREATE PRIMARY PARTITION
Type SELECT PARTITION 1
Type ACTIVE
Type FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="Windows 7" QUICK

Type ASSIGN LETTER=C

Type EXIT

Then back in the Where to install Windows click on Refresh and you should see

Highlight that and click on next .

If you don't want to use the entire hard drive you could type in CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=51200 that will create a 50GB partition

For six months or so, I've had a problem where my laptop's audio will stop working. The red "X" appears over the volume icon in the system tray and audio will not function whatsoever. Until now, rebooting has been 99% successful at restoring the audio until it eventually fails again. But in the last three days, my normal quick fix no longer does the trick. Apparently my laptop can no longer find the actual Conexant 20672 SmartAudio HD hardware on the motherboard. This is a T520 laptop running Win 7 with SP1. The T520 is roughly six years old, so I realize the hardware's age might be a factor. There are definitely other issues related to its age (general performance sluggishness, inability to wake up from sleep mode, backup no longer works correctly) and I will eventually have to replace the laptop. But in the meantime, solving this persistent audio issue will buy me at least a few more months, so it's worth fixing to me. I've found dozens of threads that suggest reinstalling the device drivers, which of course I have tried several times using the drivers here. The problem: After rebooting, the device manager still doesn't list any playback device ("No audio devices are installed") even with both "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" checked. Similarly, when I run the 8aad14ww.exe device installer, it terminates with an error message ("Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver").  Has the hardware itself ac...

Hi,

For the purpose of being as concise as possible, I will go through my situation in builet points. If you want more details or specifications, simply ask and I will provide.

- I have a Lenovo laptop which came with Windows 8.1

- For various reasons, I recently had to do a hard drive erasure, erasing everything - including the recovery partition.

- I then installed Linux.

- Now I am trying to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 using a bootable USB.

- I get stuck on the installation setup. The error message is "Load Driver: No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."

- I have spent many hours googling and have tried..
* to add the supposed needed drivers as suggested here: boot - Windows 7 install "Load Driver" error, Lenovo laptop - Super User but I am unsure which specific files are meant by "Intel Chipset Driver" and "Intel Management Driver", where specifically to find them, and how specifically to put them in "the root of the bootable USB-device".
* to add USB 3.0 drivers to the USB as suggested here: No Device Drivers were found -Windows 7 Install (from USB) - [Solved] - Windows 7

- The problem still persists however.

I will very much appreciate any help I can get.

Cheers,

Hey guys.
Im running a compaq v6000
It restarts after the compaq screen loads up with the bios options, and keeps doing that.

I popped in a vista oem cd to reboot but it says:

"!no drivers were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"
After Loading it says "no device drivers were found. make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK"
When I go into the bios menu (phoenixBIOS (V)f.27) and run a "Primary hard disk self test" it shows that, in the test status: No IDE Device.

I've set the first boot order to my atapi cd/dvd ROM drive.

Hi, I bought a Medion Akoya E5211 laptop 2 years ago which had Basic Windows Vista pre-installed on it; but I dropped the laptop and the operating system got wiped. I put the recovery disc in the laptop; but the disc does not reinstall Windows. I bought a Basic Windows Vista installation disc; but I am unable to install it.

I have to attempt to install in 'custom' because 'upgrade' has been disabled. I am asked 'where do you want to install Windows?' Though, I am told 'no drives were found'. 'Refresh' does nothing. When I 'load driver', I am asked to 'install the device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files, and then click OK'; but the installation CD is in the laptop. I think the CD works. It is new and I am asked to type the product key when I first put the disc in the laptop. Anyway, when I click on 'Ok', I am told that 'no device drivers were found'. Nothing changes when I untick 'hide drivers that are not compatible with hardware on this computer'. The screen remains blank. If I 'browse', then a box appears with 'computer', 'CD drive (D:) FRMCFRE-EN-DVD' and 'Boot (X:)' in it. Folders (?) appear when I click 'CD drive' and 'Boot'; but clicking on the folders does not help me progress. I would be grateful for help. Thanks.

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.




The error in the quote means that the computer could not find the Hard Disk Drive and that it tried to boot from the network cable. If you dropped your laptop you probably have damaged the HDD. And your laptop cannot find your HDD to instal to.
You can test this theory by pulling the HDD out of the computer and mounting it on another computer as a Slave drive or attaching it with a USB Adapter. If it doesn't power up, you know that the drive needs to be replaced.

Answer:No device drivers found

You appear to have physically broken the harddrive when you dropped it. Or at best the connection cable to it has shook loose.
If it's broken you will have to buy a new harddrive to replace it.
May I suggest if you do not know how to go about this then you take it to a little local shop for them to do and they will also test your harddrive to see if any data can be recovered. It will prob cost about 60 - 80 to repair plus the cost of a new harddrive if needed.

Hi,
I have a little problem with my custom USB device. I think it has something to do with Vista installation routines... So here are the steps that describe the problem. I install drivers for my device on Vista and than plug in the device. I go through all the wizards that windows suggests but Vista can't find a proper driver.Than i goto to my Control panel, find the device and do the "Refresh driver" directly pointing to the place where drivers have been installed. And than everything goes fine. So the trouble is Vista can't find proper drivers when i plug in the USB device. What could possibly go wrong? The same works perfectly on XP. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer:Drivers not found for USB device on plug.

Hi Revenge_one, welcome to TSF...

the next time you get the driver installation box pop up, try to direct the installer to the following location please:

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

Ensure the box is checked to include sub-folders and that may solve the problem.

If not, feel free to let us know

Hello all, I am trying to install Windows 7 on the following desktop PC:

Intel Core i3 Processor i3-530
2048MB DDR3
500GB 3G Hard Drive
ATI Radeon HD 4350 Graphics
Supermulti Drive with LightScribe Technology

First, I will start by saying that when I turn on my PC, I receive this message on a black screen "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". When I press a key, nothing changes, i.e. still stuck on the same screen.

So, I decided to install Windows 7.

When I tried installing Windows 7, it would begin the installation process... I clicked "Install Now", then when given the options between "Upgrade" or 'Custom (Advanced)', I selected the Custom Advanced.

When asked 'Where you would like to install Windows?' (see screenshot #1.jpg), there was nothing shown in the box, i.e. there is no hard drive or partition for me to select where I can install Windows. So just to try, I clicked "Load Driver".

It prompted me to install a device driver. I clicked Browse and browsed through the existing drives. (see Screenshot #2.jpg)

Next, it showed me that 'No device drivers were found..." (see Screenshot #3.jpg)

I tried to google on how to find the drivers to install but to no avail.

Any ideas on how I should proceed from here? i.e. How to install the device drivers needed to continue the installation process etc.

Thanks!

First, I will start by saying that when I turn on my PC, I receive this message on a black screen "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". When I press a key, nothing changes, i.e. still stuck on the same screen.

So, I decided to install Windows 7.

When I tried installing Windows 7, it would begin the installation process... I clicked "Install Now", then when given the options between "Upgrade" or 'Custom (Advanced)', I selected the Custom Advanced.

When asked 'Where you would like to install Windows?' (see screenshot #1.jpg), there was nothing shown in the box, i.e. there is no hard drive or partition for me to select where I can install Windows. So just to try, I clicked "Load Driver".

It prompted me to install a device driver. I clicked Browse and browsed through the existing drives. (see Screenshot #2.jpg)

Next, it showed me that 'No device drivers were found..." (see Screenshot #3.jpg)

I tried to google on how to find the drivers to install but to no avail.

Any ideas on how I should proceed from here? i.e. How to install the device drivers needed to con... Read more

So, as @karlsnooks and @golden had said, I downloaded an ISO file from Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River ? My Digital Life.
And using a Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool, I burned it into a USB stick.
Now, when I boot from it, I get to the Window home screen, and when I proceed, I get this message:

"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step." <Browse> <OK> <Cancel>

When I browse and point it to the Boot folder, this message comes:

No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers and then click OK.

I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. What I'm planning to do is FORMAT my whole PC and do a custom install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 again.

Answer:Installation From USB Fails - No Device Drivers Found.

Where did you get Ultimate? How do you plan to activate it?

The error is always a problem with the installer as obviously the USB stick needs no DVD driver. Try writing the confirmed ISO to stick using Universal USB Installer to compare what happens.

I am reinstalling windows 7 on my laptop. Installing windows is not a new thing for me, as i have done this for a number of times on different laptops. But now, I encountered an error that I never have encountered before.

I made a bootable flash drive and copied all the contents of the iso to it (I have used the same iso since the first time i learned installing windows, so iso should not be the problem). Now, I restarted my laptop and booted it from the flash drive. It then showed the window with the button "install now". I clicked it and the error appeared saying:

"No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK"
"Load Driver
A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

I believe i have done nothing wrong in my installation process, from making the bootable flash drive to booting from it.

My laptop:
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7600) (7600.win7_gdr.120830-0334)

The error almost always means its a bad installer. Use the ISO for your licensed version from Step 1 written to stick using tool in step 2, then closely follow the other steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are same for retail.

Hello all, I recently built a desktop so that I could play SWTOR, all the parts were salvaged from other computers, but they are all working and compatible, to the best of my knowledge, except for the hard drive, which was broken, so I went out and bought a Western Digital 1 TB hard drive and a new copy of Windows 7 Home Edition.

When I got home I plugged the hard drive, a SATA drive, in and popped the install disk in, only right after I got to the "Install Now" button and clicked it did I get this message;

No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK

Followed by;

A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step.

I know that all the required parts are in the computer, yet I can't seem to figure out how to solve this, any help at all would be appreciated.

So I have an old laptop running Win7 professional x64 SP1. I downloaded X17-59186.iso and made sure the MD5 and SHA-1 checksums matched which they do.

Properly formatted my USB drive etc. When I boot from USB and choose `install now` however I get the load driver window error:



Also if I try and choose "repair your computer" (at the previous step, rather than trying to install windows) I get an error message saying "This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows."

This makes it sound like I have the wrong ISO even though in system information it is definitely running win7 Pro x64.

What is most confusing is that if I use this same bootable USB on my other laptop (running win7 home x64) it works fine, neither of these errors occur.

Also I read something about trying USB2.0/3.0 ports, neither will work.

Any help is very much appreciated, thanks!

Hello! I am currently trying to install windows 7 onto my laptop. I had recently used a program called DBAN to completely wipe my computer, and that involved windows 7.

I recently bought an Acer Aspire 4750G with no Windows pre-installed (i.e DOS).

I downloaded Windows 7 x64 Professional Edition .iso from the official MSDNAA website. I used Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (run on Windows XP SP3) to create a bootable USB flashdisk (Sandisk Cruzer Blade 8.0GB). Note that the file format of the flashdisk is turned to NTFS.

Next, i inserted the flashdisk into the USB3.0 port of my 4750G, when into BIOS and changed the boot priority to USB HDD - Sandisk Cruzer Blade.
As usual, I saved the changes, exited the BIOS and reboot. Also note that the initial mode is AHCI.

Booting from flashdisk is successful. I was able to enter the setup. The first screen prompts to select country and keyboard. The next screen shows the button "Install Now".
When I clicked this button, the setup does not lead me to the License Agreement screen. Instead, it displays the following message:

A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now
There is a Browse and Rescan button at the bottom.

I had previously downloaded every driver for my Acer Aspire 4750G, hence i extracted those in .zip and copied them into the same flashdisk and restarted the setup again.
When the No Device Driver screen appeared, I clicked on the "Browse" button and tried to navigate to the driver folders inside the flashdisk. But I cannot find them, because the directory of the bootable US... Read more

First of all, this is my first post on this forum. (Hurray!) Only because most computer related issues I can fix myself with the help of the internet. However after trying to fix this for about 2 days now this is my last resort. Before you ask yes I have HUNTED through the internet trying to fix the issue, but most of the fixes are only specific to their computer so I've decided making a new thread would be the only other option.

So after finally getting sick of Windows Vista, I wanted to upgrade so I bought and downloaded the Windows 7 x32 .iso file and burned it at the lowest speed possible twice; once using ImgBurn, and once using InfraRecorder, after recieving the error the first time. From there I shut down my computer and rebooted it, and booted from the Windows 7 install disk. The installer then opens up and everything till I get to the language screen, where I pick my language (English US or just English, from memory.) Time and date location (English New Zealand) and default for the other (cannot remember that). From there it takes me to the next screen, where a pop up saying 'No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok.' pops up with three options, Ok, Cancel and Browse. From there I pretty much have to find my driver updates to continue, but it does not specify what driver I need at all and I have no idea what to do.

Hello oldsgold, welcome to Seven Forums!



When you say "a wiped hard drive" what method did you use to wipe it?


If you didn't use the clean all method listed in Option One of this tutorial at the link below, boot the Windows 7 DVD to diskpart and give it a go, it'll take close to 3 hours to complete.

Then use the outline in Option Two #2 of the same tutorial to create and activate a single 100GB partition to do the installation to; try AHCI first then IDE if necessary.

SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

DISKPART : At PC Startup


You shouldn't need to add any drivers at all as Windows 7 is all most driver complete and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

Answer:Viatech Usb 2.0 Drivers Not Digitally Signed???

Hi there!

If XP says they're not signed...just install them anyway! XP just implemented USB 2.0 in SP-1.

When you get that message...just click "Continue Anyway" and load them up!

They should work fine!

I'm trying to install Windows 7 on a computer I just built. I know all the parts are compatible.During installation, when it looks for a storage device, it says it gives me this message:No signed device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok.I downloaded all the drivers from the motherboard manufacturer's website onto a flash drive and tried again. Still no luck. Then I tried a CD; it still refuses to find the drivers.Does anybody know why it's doing this? Or how I can disable driver signing before I install it?

Answer:Windows 7 can't find signed drivers?

If you are running the windows 7 intaller on another windows like xp or Vista that is the problem.Try booting from the cd rom.if the problem continue make sure that your hd is visible in the BIOS, and enable the option IDE MODE, SATA MODE or similar.Regards,esvom.

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

Probably has nothing to do with it. Do you have services disabled?

Since I made the Move to 64-bit a while back, Every once in a while, I would run into a Problem where I needed to Install Driver that was Un-Signed.

As A Security measure in the 64-bit Versions of Vista/7, All Drivers must come with a Secure Digital Signature.

This is not a large problem anymore with the fact that Most Drivers are Signed nowadays. But Older Hardware Drivers tend not to be Signed.

There is a Simple way around this Block.

Open the Command Prompt in Admin Mode (Type "CMD" into the Start Menu and press "Ctrl+Shift+Enter")
Enter this Command: bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
Now when you Re-Boot, You should be able to Install those Pesky Un-Signed Drivers.

Hi Benjamin,

We have a tutorial section for guides like this if you would like this thread moved there?

You can also install unsigned drivers by either self-signing the certificate or installing the one it came with, if it contained any digital certificate

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install windows and I have a MSI 890FXA-GD70 [product page] that is setup with a functioning RAID 0 configuration. My issue is when I get to the step where you select your hard drive, it doesn't show up.

So I click "Load Drivers" and select the x64 raid driver I got from MSI. It shows up, then I click next and then the error message comes up: "To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers....etc"

I restarted and spammed f8 to get into advance startup options. I selected "Disable digital driver signing"

However that did not fix the problem.

Does anyone have any tips or a solution?

Hi all, I've been running the RC for around 3 months now and love it. I didn't have any issues when I installed it. I added the drivers for my raid card when the select partition option came up, it installed them and away it went. Now that I'm trying to install the retail version it insists that my drivers are unsigned and that's the end of that. I've tried using the repair system work around to get the drivers loaded; but that option says that the drivers don't match my installed hardware. I'm using the exact same driver I used for the RC, on the same thumb drive in fact. Plus, Promise says they're signed. I know there isn't a problem with the raid card because I'm on the system now. Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks.

Answer:Win7 x64 won't recognize my raid drivers as signed

Well, I got it about an hour after my post so I figured I'd report back in case anyone else has a Promise FastTrak 2650 and runs into the same issue. Even though I hadn't done it while installing the RC, I unplugged everything except for my keyboard and mouse. I switched over to a VGA cable as well. This time instead of pointing the install to the 64 bit drivers I just hit ok and let it look for its self. It loaded the 32 bit drivers, proceeded with the install and then somehow reconfigured its self with the proper drivers once Windows was up and running. As soon as I hit windows update it downloaded the very same x64 driver I was trying to install from my thumb drive and installed it just fine. So now its up and running perfectly. I thought letting it load a 32 bit driver would have hosed the install; but apparently I was wrong.

Why is everyone saying Vista 64-bit won't install unsigned drivers? I installed the latest beta driver from nvidia and Vista warned that it was unsigned but gave me an option to install anyway.

Am I missing something/misinterpretting this or was this only the case in the Beta/RC verisons of Vista and everyone keeps bringing it up (kind of like requiring UAC for changing backgrounds; people still say Vista does it)?
 

Answer:Digitally signed drivers required under Vista 64-bit?

Short answer: The effects of FUD.

Long answer: The truth is, it was never stated on any official documents that Vista wouldn't accept unsigned drivers. The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

Well then. How bout that? I should have just gotten Vista 32bit. I just tried to install a program on Vista and Vista turned up it's nose.
Sorry Dwayne, but I refuse to install this driver. It hasn't been signed!

And I replied with, You fool, this is a legit program, there's nothing wrong with it. It will work just fine. Install it.

And vista says to me, Well I don't want to.

Then I replied with, do it anyway. Your my computer, my operating system, you do what I say.

And then Vista laughed.

Is there a work around that I can set up to get Vista to install these "unsigned drivers"?

Answer:Requires signed drivers... program may not work properly

you have to run Vista with the option to allow for unsigned drivers - reboot, hit F8 repeatedly until you get the Vista menu, and select (I beleive) Allow Vista to use unsigned drivers.

Be warned, though that this is something you'll have to do *every time* you boot.

Hi,


I've a samsung with some extra samsung features (samsung update plus, speed up manager, recovery system etc.) and they bug me. Therefore I wanna do a clean installation on my laptop but when I boot up on my USB (works fine) I get the following message "No device drivers were found ..." instead of having access to the partition manager.
I've done a lot of research on my problem but haven't come up with any solutions yet. Does anybody out there know what to do?

Btw., I've tried the to boot other laptops with the USB stick and it works like a charm. I read somewhere that the problem could be that my laptop didn't load the SATA drivers, which is needed for the partition manager, that might be the problem but I don't know where to find the drivers though.
Furthermore I've noticed that I can't see my USB drive when I browse for files only C:/ (system disk), D:/ (primary), E:/ (some recovery disk) and X:/ (boot) and that might be the problem I guess!? Strange this that I boot from the USB stick though

Answer:"No device drivers were found ..." when trying a clean Win7 install

Format the USB stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu. Boot under USB, Removable or HD's in one-time BIOS Boot Menu. Set HD to boot first in BIOS setup.

I would first make sure your Samsung Recovery is not set up like in this thread, which is the worst nightmare I've seen here in thousands of successful clean reinstalls. The OEM software didn't work correctly when downloaded from webpage. Samsung claims the apps which work are stored on the Recovery partition which only enables the use of an image user is to save to external or DVD's. However if a small Recov partition is accidentally deleted during reinstall there is no access to this or the Recovery image - ever - and Samsung won't ship Recovery Disks. Apparently the only way to reinstall the Recov partition is if the image is saved to DVD's which will boot and run, but many save it to external instead.

Hello,
There are numerous threads with the same issue online, but none of the solutions have worked for me, so I'm posting my own. I did contact Microsoft and Lenovo, but Lenovo is asking for money that I can't afford for tech support, so I'm hoping someone here can help me out.
Here's the situation:
I have a Lenovo Y510P that came with Windows 8.1. Half a year later, I'm sick of 8.1 and want to downgrade to Windows 7 (I know that simulation softwares like ClassicShell and such exist, but I would really rather just use Windows 7).
I downloaded a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and burned it onto a DVD disk.
I also downloaded all of the Windows 7 device drivers from this Lenovo site: Laptops and netbooks :: IdeaPad Y Series laptops :: IdeaPad Y510p Notebook - Lenovo Support (US)
^I had to specify the model number and OS, so I'm hoping I downloaded the correct drivers (all of the drivers are .exe format, is that what it's supposed to look like?)
I put all of the drivers onto a flash drive.
So, I am now equipped with a DVD with Windows 7 on it as well as a flash drive with all of the drivers on it.
I boot from the disk with the DVD and flash drive attached. Windows 7 installation begins and here I get the error, 'no device drivers found.' When I click 'browse', I see that the flash drive is recognized, but the files on it aren't.
What do you guys think the issue is??

Answer:'No device drivers found' error Windows 8.1 -> Windows 7 downgrade ins

Why would you do all that? Win7 is a driver-complete OS in the installer and via Windows Updates after install. Providing a bunch of drivers is from the XP era.

You only need the wireless driver in your backup so if it isn't provided during reinstall, you can install it to get online, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3), then run all Important and Optional Windows Updates which should deliver most drivers. I would only import drivers still missing after all rounds of Windows Update are finished.

For a Win8 PC there are special steps that must be taken to disable Secure Boot and enable CSM or Legacy BIOS to Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7. Then when you boot the installer to do the Clean Install Windows 7 delete all partitions using the Drive Options shown in Steps 7 and 8, create and format new as you wish, install to first partition.

Other tips to get and keep a perfect Win7 install are same as for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Hi,

This is my first post on these forums, so please excuse me if anything is wrong.

Details of the problem: I have a Sony VAIO laptop that runs Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I recently downloaded the same version from digital river that has SP1 included and installed it on my laptop. I installed the drivers that I had downloaded from sony's esupport site which went fine. After I rebooted and tried to install the rest of the drivers, I started getting the Code 52 error: Windows cannot verify the signature of this driver. I've seen that every driver can be installed immediately after the system has been booted the first time (after a clean install). Once rebooted, it starts giving the code 52 error. I can't install my iPhone drivers (through iTunes) or PS3 utilities because of this. I'm wondering what changes during the first reboot. I must also say that these very same drivers were used on the previous build of Win 7 HP that I was using except that it did not have SP1 integrated.

Has anyone had a similar experience? I know that the digital signature check can be disabled using bcdedit.exe but I want Windows 7 to work the way it should: it should stop me from using unsigned drivers while installing signed drivers correctly. Does any one have any clue to what's going on with my Win7 on my laptop?

Answer:Driver Digital Signature error when using signed drivers (Code 52)

Hi ajayav, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Boot into Advanced Boot Options and disable driver signing checking.

The Advanced Boot Options screen lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting modes. You can access the menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key before Windows starts.

Disabling driver signature enforcement has helped a lot of users in fixing the issue.

You may also delete the USB "Upper Filter" & "Lower Filter" Entry and check if that helps.

Background: clone the entire contents of the HDD to a SSD with the aim to replace the HDD, including the OS.

After having cloned a HDD with Windows 7 laptop to a SDD successfully, and replaced the HDD with the SDD, resulted in a smooth boot exactly the the same procedure failed with a 2007 laptop Vista 32bit.

Procedure with support of the guidelines of the SSD Vendor (Sandisk):

2. Clone the entire HDD to the SSD
3. Replace the HDD with the SSD
4. Start the laptop.

5b. Result with a Vista 32bit laptop: failed

Failure with Vista (I'm not that technical):

The BIOS indicates: no IDE device found.
When starting up, the message 'Operation System not found' appears

A major difference between the Win 7 and Vista laptop is the transfer mode of the (former) HDD and the new SSD: Win 7 had a SATA 300 installed, while the Vista has a SATA 150. The SSD is SATA 600.

What I did?
1) I created a ISO Vista 32bit file to get the laptop into the repair mode. This repair mode does not recognize a drive c: (checking out with the installed DOS).
So, i'm turning in circles. There is no way to get the internal SSD recognized.

I can enable and disable both wireless and Bluetooth with this menu option BUT when I enable bluetooth, I get the message 'One of the USB devices attached to the system has malfunctioned or is not recognised'. I have removed the installed Bluetooth software and re-installed using both bluetooth install files published on my S10e drivers list on lenovo. Neither one works. I know that you need to install from C:\DRIVERS dir once the installer has finished unpacking. I have tried various other obvious things but with no success. I also enabled 'Bluetooth co-operation' in the wireless lan settings. All I can do now is get at the Bluetooth device under the keyboard cover and have a look at that? Anyone got any suggestions before I get the screwdriver out? (The device is out of warranty).

Hi, I have the BCM2045B (BDC-2) installed in my Z61t. I run WindowsXP SP2. I installed the latest drivers from the Lenovo support site:7vba09ww.exe - Thinkpad Bluetooth with hanced Data Rate installs to C:\DRIVERS\TPWUSB7kbf02ww.exe - ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Firmware Update installs to C:\DRIVERS\TPBTFWUP Windows now has the Bluetooth Software Installed - I have a blue icon in my systray but with a Red B. "Bluetooth Device Not Found".  In Bluetooth Configuration - Diagnostics it says Bluetooth Device Is Not Detected.  Clicking Refresh achieves nothing. In Device Manager in says the driver for ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate is installed properly.  Driver Provider BroadcomDriver Date: 18/8/08 Driver Version: 5.5.0.4300Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher There is no rollback option. I have hardware switched on/off wireless, cycled through Fn+F5 and re-booted, but still no joy. Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks. James

What is the device you are trying to detect ?Does Fn+F5 turn on the bluetooth light on the panel ?Have you tried detecting the computer from the bluetooth device?Did you ever work with the bluetooth device and finally  is the bluetooth device an inbuilt one?
