- Windows usually is able to install to an SSD without special driver. But if it says it needs one, so be it. Since it's a Kingston drive, you would need a Kingston driver, not one from Lenovo.
- On what PC did you format the disk and refresh the storage table and use command prompt on it? It seems that did have the necessary disk driver.
- It's best to install Windows on a totally empty drive. The installer will make the necessary partitions.
- For the BIOS setup (whatever you want to do with it) you pressed the wrong key (f too late. Pressing the right key earlier (immediately when booting) should help.
I recently bought and installed a new SSD (Kingston SSDNow v300 240 GB) to my laptop (Lenovo Z580, Intel 2540M; 1 TB) after my old HDD got damaged and rendered useless. Whilst installing Windows 10 with a DVD drive, installation gave me an error, saying:
Windows can't be isntalled on drive 0 partition 1. When I click on it, it says:
"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [Disk Drive]. Click 'Load Driver' and load the required device driver"
To solve this, I have tried the following and none of them worked:
-Clicking on "New" and allocating the disk size
-Formatting the disk and restarting,
-Deleting and creating a disk with two partitions, formatting them seperately and restarting
-Refreshing the storage table
-Installing a driver (Intel(R) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller Driver, 1E03) from the Intel Chipset driver file in the official website of Lenovo via a usb stick (Installation saw the files and loaded the driver but I still had the same error)
-Formatting the drive using command prompt (Shift+F10)
Other problem is that whenever I try to open the BIOS Setup, I can't. I get a Menu showing selections(Normal Startup, BIOS Setup, Boot Menu, System Recovery) but when I click on any of them my computer gives me a blank screen.
Can someone please help me on this topic? I couldn't even find a person that had the same issue on Google.
