Dell e6400 Windows 7 reinstall

This question is not answered


I am having a hard time figuring out what I need to do to get Windows 7 reinstalled. I have the Dell W7 64bit DVD and when I boot to that Windows install comes up and gives me errors regarding the CD-DVD driver and the SATA driver. I don't see any driver in the driver download from the Dell support website per se. Has anyone figure out how to get it to reinstall? Is there another ISO I need to download to install the OS like I have to do with the PowerEdge servers? I deal with those 10 times more than with laptops.

Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hi edentone,

    Please load the Bios defaults and check if it works . You could also try switching the SATA operation in BIOS from IRRT to AHCI.

    Thanks and Regards
