To clarify what I said earlier, once you have a pci-e sata controller installed it should be recognized by the bios and you will be able to use it to boot the cd and run the repair or just use your usb drive. I do appreciate that you have contacted us. In which case you can just buy a pci sata controller at your local computer store and you’re back in business assuming your motherboard has a pci slot available. If windows does need a driver cd to recognize the controller, you should be able to swap discs during the windows install and load the driver from it, then swap back. This is a forum that deals with Windows 7 problems.
