  • if you use a IDE DVD drive, configure it as MASTER, not as slave.

    the drives are Sata and the asus DVD was the master it gave me
    the error 1/2 way threw install once I removed and dropped it in the second
    drive it finished the install from where it left off with no prob after install
    both drives are there no prob. thanks for your help. I'm not a tech like you all
    but I work on PCs as a hobby I didn't try this on 8 but some times during the
    install of 7 install just stops with no error once I eject and re install
    disk the installation proceeds from where it left off .thanks again. after about
    a week using W8 I will prob replace all my Loved W7s with 8 once it is deployed
    every thing seems to work so much better and faster on 8

  • Try this if your problem isn't resolved...switching cables works, but this is better.

    Could you please try to do following and let us know if solved the problem.

    1. Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. Type cmd in Windows 8 Metro UI and press cltr+shift+enter

    2. Type following and say enter

    reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

    3. Reboot the system

    4. Verify if the problem has been resolved

  • atapi stands for IDE, not SATA. He seems to have a different issue.
