I've just bought this second-hand Clevo W230ST with Windows 8.1 Pro on it and I can't live with it (I really can't, there is too much interfering with quick access to PC essentials and I haven't got time to become familiar with it) - but I can't install Windows 7 via DVD because it gets past the language selection and then says there's a driver or drivers missing - nothing more than that, no clue as to which.
There are a number of unknown devices in Device Manager and I don't know how to find out what they are (2 PCI devices, SM Bus Controller and an 'unknown device'), so I wondered if there is a program which I can run and will detect my hardware and install drivers for it. I'm so desperate I don't even mind if it's not free
Clevo don't seem to have a package, you have to select individual device drivers - and they haven't got any called PCI-anything.
I'm asking here because (1) I don't know where to turn, and (2) Seven Forums have been very helpful in the past, but I need something compatible with Windows 8.1.
