Specs: Windows 7
Hello i have a problem regarding formatting. I bought a computer a while back and now time has come to start clean. I want to format my computer, but i haven't succeeded quite yet. After wiping my hardrive, i inserted my usb with windows on it, and my PC found the files and windows should work.

The problem is installing the drivers. How do i do it ? It says i need drivers for my hard drive. I downloaded all drivers for my motherboard and they are the correct ones, but the PC doesn't seem to pick them up from my usb ? It says nothing is found, even though i have the files on my usb. Can someone tell me what to do please ?

My computer was self built, but windows is windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, graphics card is AMD radeon HD 6950, hard drive is Western Digital WD Green WD20EARX 2TB , and motherboard is asus M4A87TDEVO.

And btw does it make a difference how i transfer the drivers to the usb ? i mean i dont have the original cd's so i had to download em. Do i need to keep em as .rar or as a folder or just everything seperate ?

~~~Appreciate it alot, whoever helps me!

✔ Best Answer
If they are .RAR files it's not an official Windows download site. Microsoft does not release downloads as .RAR files.

Download the official ISO DVD image from Microsoft and make a bootable DVD from it, then boot from that DVD to install Windows. Downloads are here but you'll need your valid Windows 7 Product Key to access them:
