    Default can't get windows 7 setup to detect IDE hdd on ASRock A55M-HVS FM1

    so i just bought a new rig setup and the board is ASRock A55M-HVS FM1, the board doesnt have IDE plugs but i have an IDE add on card, the mobo itself detects the hdd just fine in the bios but when i get to windows 7 setup and it asks where i want to install it doesnt show anything, and i cant find any drivers to load to get windows 7 setup to detect it, any ideas??? im using an IDE drive cause i got it on sale at newegg and honestly i didnt realize it was an IDE drive till i got it :(

    You would need to supply windows 7 drivers to the IDE controller card. What is the make and model of it, go the MFR's website and see if they have drivers for windows 7.

    so i got the drivers for my card, its a masscool XWT-PCIE11, got them from Masscool, i can find the drivers and load them but then it says "please use a signed 64bit driver, using unsigned drivers may result in windows 7 not running properly" then just goes back to the load drivers screen still not detecting my hdd, im going to wait and see what you guys think but if all else fails i guess i can use a sata drive, install everything then close the driver over

    so i even found the disc that goes with the controller card and went through every possible driver on it with no luck :(

    You downloaded this file 20091123174328qhptbu.rar?

    When extracted you get 2 zip files in side 1 JMB36X_WinDrv_R1.17.52_WHQL.zip the other is JMB36X_WinDrv_R1.17.52_WHQL_eSata.zip. Extract the first file you should see a folder called Floppy64 you want to point the win7 installer to this folder.
