Signed disk driver for 64 bit installatin

    Question

  • I am trying to make a bootable USB key disk for my 64 bit systen. I have a 30 Gb Cruzer but the installation does not see the disk. The installation tells me that I need  a signed druver for the Cruzer.

    Where do I find such a driver?

  • I think the problem is that those sticks have some software on them that interferes with that.

    check on their web site for a removal tool

  • Try using a Linux USB installer and see if it can clean up the stick for you.

  • What OS are you trying to install on the Cruzer?

    (Not Win7, I hope. I believe that the installer will refuse to install Win7 on a USB drive.)

  • Try to "clean" the disk using diskpart.  Open an elevated comand prompt and type diskpart.  Once at the diskpart command prompt, type list disk.  You should see the 30GB disk.  Type select disk x (where "x" represents the disk number of the USB drive.  Once the disk is selected, type clean.  This action will remove any partitions and volumes on the disk.

  • You really don't want to remove all partitions. At least one is needed.

    I dont think I'll be able to recover the disk I formatted. They do not take formatting well.

    Im fortunate in that I have an identical disk that I am now copying to DVD so I can do everything to the remaining 32 gb cruzer.

  • I know (I think). SSDs have a additional partion. It may have tools or just replacement blocks. Formatting kills this partition also.

    Im just about 50% of the way through the copy. By the way, does anyone know of the WES7?
