Hi. I have an ASUS N53sv laptop and i just bought a samsung evo 850 SSD that i would like to put in. I took out the old hard drive and put in the SSD. It came up in the bios. When i loaded the windows DVD and it go to the point to select a location for the OS it could not find any drives and it is asking for some driver. No driver came on the CD and i am not sure where to go from here. Most formums say that the drive should be a simple plug and play. Can you give me some pointers on how to get this problem solved. I would really appreciate it.

Windows 7 will ask for a driver if you plug anything into a USB 3 port. If you use a USB 2 port it should work

BUT, Windows 8 should work, but if you've tried all ports it may need a dvd driver.

I have no idea where you would get one from. If this is what it's looking for

I am using an external DVD rom. I tired different USB ports on the laptop but same issue. Would their still be an issue since it booted from the DVD and tried to load the windows 8? if that is the case how do i get around that?

Sweet ! :)

Yup that can also happen if you use a USB flash drive (in a USB 3 port) in Windows 7. it'll ask for a driver. I think USB 3 needs a USB 3 driver for Win7.

But glad I could help !
