Windows 7 asking for Primary IDE Channel driver while installing?
Now a days there is boom for windows 7 in market. So like everyone I also love to install windows 7 on my old machine. When I was trying to install windows 7 over Windows xp (Dual operating system), Windows 7 keep asking for Primary IDE channel Drivers in the beginning of installation.
For Primary IDE Channels drivers I surfed many forums but didn’t find any right solution to get primary IDE Channel drivers. So I tried many options, after many trial and errors, I found one way to find primary IDE Channel drivers. Let’s see how it works:-
While surfing I downloaded one software (don’t buy) to update drivers. Using which I found the name of devices.
I found IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers (intel r 82801db ultra ata controller) then I searched it in device manager where I found Primay IDE Channel in IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. So I download drivers for intel r 82801db ultra ata controller and installed it.
After installing drivers , I tried to install windows 7 and finally it is installed on my machine successfully , without error of load drivers for Pirmary IDE Channel.
