    Installation issue We couldn’t find any drives


    Hey guys,

    I am installing Windows 10 on Lenovo T400 Laptop and getting this error We couldn’t find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load Driver.

    How to fix it ?

    Regards.

    From that screen what do you get if you press Shift + F10 to get a command prompt and then type diskpart <enter>, list disk <enter>?

    Is it gpt? It will have a star in the Gpt column like this if it is
    Code:
    DISKPART> list disk
    
      Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
      --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
      Disk 0    Online          113 GB   128 MB        *

    Its MBR.

    Do you want to wipe the whole disk and do clean install?

    If so in diskpart:

    SELECT DISK 0
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    SELECT PARTITION 1
    FORMAT FS=NTFS
    ACTIVE
    EXIT


    You may have to reboot and restart the installation but that should work.

    Do you want me to convert into GPT also ?

    No - I'm assuming your T400 doesn't support UEFI. My x201 doesn't and is similar vintage.

    You could check in your BIOS but if you don't have the option to turn on UEFI in BIOS then you want MBR not GPT.

    Are you booting from USB? Are you using a 2.0 or a 3.0 stick? Sometimes 3.0 sticks will cause that.

    Yes you are right.

    I am using USB 2.0.

    Now there is another error:

    A media driver your computer needs is missing.
