    How to obtain SATA drivers of Windows 7


    5) Choose your Sata Controller. Click OK
    NOTE: For this example, I am using JMB363.
    I have windows 7 and when trying to install Windows 8, it cannot find my laptop's Hard Drive.
    According to your tutorial, I can make Win 8 recognize the SATA HDD. But how can I get my Windows 7 SATA drivers? Is there any topic on sevenforums or here that can shows how to do it?

    Welcome to EightForums

    You need to download your drivers from the manufacturer's website.

    Thank you,
    What are SATA drivers actually for? Are they the drivers to HDD, GPU, CPU, Chipset...?
    My laptop is "Toshiba Satellite C655-S5049". In the download page on Toshiba website, I cannot locate SATA drivers?
    Where can I get my SATA Drivers? Thank you for your great forum.

    Which one should I download as my SATA driver?
    * Intel Management Engine Interface v6.0.40.1215 (Security Driver Utility Application Special)
    * Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver v11.5.2.1001 (Driver HDD)

    Just one more question; since this is an msi .exe file, can it be installed while I am stuck in not recognizing my HDD window during installation of Win 8? Or I need to decompile (extract) it? If so, how can I extract .exe files?
