I understand i need to chase the drivers, but isn't that normally something Windows does during the installation. Why is that not happening anymore. Is it because W7 stopped support as of Jan 2015. I never ran into this issue before with earlier versions of OS.
But more to the point, how am i supposed to know who the manufacturer is of every component of my device or even what the device actually is. When i see Performance counters, i don't know what device that actually is or who manufactures it. Base Controller is listed about 25 times, I wouldn't even know how to associate that to a device or manufacturer.
yes the new SSD is on the same HW device. It's just an added harddrive with new letter.
i figured something out through trial and error.
if i point the driver search to the other SSD Windows\System32\DriverStore it installs the missing drivers.. So i guess i worked out my own solution but still confused as to why Windows didn't do this during the installation.
