    Sata Controller Driver missing form Wndows 8 for Acer Aspi


    I'am trying 8 hours now to install Windows 8 to an Acer Aspire 5920g.
    Problem is that when the usb flash drive comes to hdd presenation point the hdd isnt being displayed.

    My guess is that Sata AHCI/IDE controller driver for the 5920g's chipset is missing from Windows 8 installation dvd.

    I googled very much and i can only find XP and Vista Sata Drivers while oi need 8's.

    Is there an alternative plz? I must get 8 installed in that laptop.

    When i make this procedure at the stage of unhiding drivers no drivers are being displayed in the list.

    And even if they did it would still be uncompatible with that laptop's sata controller chipset.

    i didnt understood in that artcile how it utilize them.

    The problem is there arent any win8 drivers avialbe for sata for 5920g to try them during win8 setup.

    Thanks you i already foudn those drivers and tried them several hjours ago but they are for XP and Vista and the Intel for 7 tops!
    That will not work unfortunately.

    An idea came to my mind.
    I downlaoded and booted the Acer Aspire 5920g from a Vista Lite DVD rom which i burned.

    Vista somehow identidies and utilized 5920g sata drivers correctly. The HDD can be shown form there with its partition and everything!

    What i need now is a way to trick the Vista installation!
    Removeing the Vista Media nad inserting the Win8 Media and continue from there!

    That would definately work!

    But how?
    Can you help on this please?!
