Windows 7 upgrade difficulties - Hard Drive Driver problem?
You don't need any special driver or even software for a hard drive to work properly.
I tried copying the DVD to the hard drive and installing from there and I encountered the same problem.

No virtual drives and no programs like Alcohol 120%. I have two external WD drives but they have been disconnected since I have been trying to install Windows 7. The only attached peripherals are a mouse and keyboard. I have disabled my printer and webcam drivers. I have noticed when I have the BIOS set for RAID, my hard drive shows up just as a generic hard drive in Device Manager. When I switch to IDE, the model of hard drive is displayed. I tried to install Win 7 in safe mode just to see what would happen and I still got the message about the SCSI drive. I doubt there is any way to bypass the compatibility check of Windows 7 installation to get past this problem, is there?
