Elitebook 8460p - Windows 7 installation doesn't recognize new SSD

Hi everybody,

 

I just purchased a Intel SSD 240GB, series 530 and fixed it into the main disk position of my EliteBook 8460p. But when I tried to install Windows 7, it stucks at finding drive for installation. It said "No driver found for installation" and asked for install CD / DVD / media with driver.

 

I tried to download the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for my laptop (link), extract it and copy to an USB key for browsing, it understand the driver as Intel Mobile Chipset AHCI....  but still cannot detect the SSD.

 

Please kindly help! I spent hours on topics but still it didn't work.

 

Many thanks!

Hi,

 

Thank for the answer. But actually it's not about SSD firmware, it's about driver for SSD on Windows 7.

 

I follow a friend's instruction, to connect the installation USB to 2.0 port, not 3.0, and it works.

 

What a relief.

 

Regards,

Student

Installing from a USB 2.0 port in lieu of a USB SS port solved the issue for me also. Thanks for the tip!
