      Unable to load SATA driver for clean Win7_x64 installation - W520


      Unable to load SATA driver for clean Win7_x64 installation. Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean installation?

      Affected Configuration

      Any of the following ThinkPad system can be affected with the symptom:

      • W520


      Windows 7 does not come with USB 3 support out of the box and hence, this happened.

      Due to that, use are recommanded :-

      1) Not to use the USB 3.0 ports for installation.

      2) Use a DVD instead.

      3)Use also the USB 2.0 port.
