    When I press Y, it says:

    How many hard drives do you have plugged in ?

    If you only have one that will have the OS (windows ) then you don't install any drivers.

    The only time you install drivers are for a RAID array.

    If you are installing a RAID array, you must use the Intel rom or Marvell rom and set the array, then start windows and then load the RAID driver.

    It sounds like you are pointing to the floppy setup that is for making a floppy that will load the drivers onto a floppy.

    Now a days, there is no need for a floppy anymore, as you can put RAID drivers on another drive or flash drive and the system will see it.

    You have 2-(Intel) chipset Sata 3 ports and 2-Sata 3 ports that are ASMedia.

    You should use the Intel ports for the OS.

    I experienced the exact same thing with the Asrock Z77 Pro4.

    I think the reason for that is because it is trying to boot from the DVD that came with the motherboard.

    My solution:

    1. I installed Win7.

    2. Checked Win 7's Device Manager.

    3. For each item that has an exclamation mark, I told Win7 to look for it in the Asrock drivers DVD which I then insert.

    4. Win 7 installs the driver.

    5. **Before** Win 7 reboots (if it does), I remove the Asrock DVD (If I don't remove the DVD then I get the message you describe).

    6. Win7 reboots.

    7. I go back to Device Manager and select the next item with an exclamation mark.

    8. I insert the Asrock DVD again.

    9. repeat step #4, 5, and 6... and so on....

    Important note: Install Win 7 first. Worry about the drivers later. After Win 7 is installed, check for drivers using Device Manager. If Win 7 cannot find the driver from Device Manager, then re-insert the Asrock drivers DVD and launch auto-run or setup, and install/select each driver from the DVD one step at a time and make sure that the Asrock DVD is not in the DVD boot drive when Win7 reboots.
