Acer Aspire One 726-0670 Windows 7 Installation problem


May 12, 2014

I have an Acer Aspire One 725-0670. Although there is indeed a recovery/installation mode from Acer (Alt+F10 at POST), I do not want that installation which comes with all the Acer stuff.

I wish to do a clean install from a fresh Windows 7 official ISO that I downloaded. Problem is, at the installation process, the setup isn't unable to find the SATA/AHCI or the chipsets drivers and ask for them.

No problem normally with that. But with that computer, it seems fairly IMPOSSIBLE to find the required drivers.

Does anyone have a hint?

Thanks and best regards,
