  1. Hi Guys, Title says it all. I have searched around and can't seem to find an answer. I fried out a old IDE drive, and ordered 2 differnt ones off newegg, an LG and a Samsung. I Can't get windows to install either one. They are seen in the bios, and are shown in the device manager (with the exclimation point) Windows tries to install the drivers but eveytime I get the " The required section was not found in the INF"

    Maddening I can't figure this out, any suggestions?

    Vista 64 bit home basic
    AMD 9950 Phenom quad
    4 gigs coirsair
    ASUS- M3N72-D
    twin XFX 9800gts
    1100w power suppy

    all latest updates

    Are they OEM drives? You might look at the website of the drive manufacture for the drive install software that prepares the drive for formating.

    I believe you should go to the Asus motherboard website to download the appropriate SATA drivers and install them.
