    Hi all, I have a Dell M1530 XPS and what a nightmare I am having installing Windows 7 on it.
    I go to install and get hit by this message
    "No Drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"
    When I click next nothing happens I have the to cancel the installation.

    I have tried pressing F2 to bring up the setup menu but do not know what to do from there.
    I have had a brand new motherboard fitted from dell and now unsure what model I have now.
    Using Belerc Advisor this is what it says about my system, any help would be great:
    Processor a
    1.67 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo
    64 kilobyte primary memory cache
    2048 kilobyte secondary memory cache
    64-bit ready
    Multi-core (2 total)
    Not hyper-threaded

    Hi there

    Some problems I had and that also BSOD alot was that the hard disc compability mode was set wrongly, if so you would not see the discs.

    Check in bios for somwthing like "AHCI" mode and "Compability" mode.

    Put it to compability as otherwise special drivers are neededm ones added you can swap this back to get more speed.
