  • I fixed this... I've download new copy of dvd-image and burn it at other software (previously I used nero, now - ImgBurn). Now, I haven't this error anymore.

    Previously I've burned dvd two times. Could be a wrong image...

  • That is a storage/SATA/SCSI driver file.  Was that file installed during the initial Windows 7 install ? 

    Can you boot into safe mode? 

    If so, you may want to look for the newest Vista compatible driver for your controller.

  • I haven't seen any info about installation any drivers. Before screen with error, I've seen only "Loading files", sth like that.

    Boot into safe mode? How? I haven't done installation yet... I know how to boot into safe mode in installed OS, but I haven't idea how do it in this case :)

    Maybe problem is in my motherboard... In few days I going to change my motherboard.
