Hi I posted a problem I had a short while ago and got good advice. Now I have the same problem.
I was playing Assassins creed1V my screen went mad. I hit the power off button . When I came to boot again no OS.
I completely formatted my SSD drive but could not load windows 8.1 64 bit or win 10 or 7. I found that the ide ata/atapi controllers missing.
Can anyone tell me how to install those drivers again please.

Since you have formatted your SSD then everything on it was ERASED. Of course there is no more OS on it.
You have to reinstall Windows on your SSD.

Please tell us what is your motherboard model and your SSD model.
Normally, when you reinstall Windows the controllers should also be installed.

Unfortunately I cannot find your motherboard model by the serial number.
Please open a Command Prompt (press Windows + R) or search for it. In the Command Prompt type in the following command (then press Enter):

Code:
wmic baseboard get product,manufacturer
Copy and paste the output to the command above here on the forum.

SSD is Crucial CT500MX200SSD1
This si the official web site How to Install an SSD Solid State Drive | Crucial.com
Select in the list MX200

Is it this Laptop ROG G750JS Manual | ROG - Republic Of Gamers | ASUS USA ???

Only HDD (Hard Disk Drive) is mentioned in the Manual. Should I understand that you use an external SSD or have you replaced the internal HDD with a SSD?

There won't be an IDE connector in this system only SATA or possibly m.2 or mSata none of which would require an additional driver.

Some times when it boots a message is displayed saying install windows driver from installation disk
Also when the the laptop was running in device manager no discs are shown. So you think sata is what is needed. ACHI is that right?
I di how ever remove the SSD and tried just the Hdd but no joy there.

In BIOS setting the disk to boot ACHI should be all that is needed. There should be a generic sata driver in Windows Vista and newer.
