If you get the ‘no signed device drivers were found’ message while installing the Windows operating system, I would request you to give your tension to me.

In the beginning, I want to assure you that you are not the only person who faces the issue.

In the entire article, I am going to brief the possible fixes in as detail as possible. Let try to fix the problem.

What to do If No Signed Device Drivers Were Found

No Device Driver were Found: All Possible Fixes

You can try the following DIY fixes if you get the message while installing the Windows. Before diving into the fixes in detail, here is a short look for you-

  • Fix 1: Change the USB Port
  • Fix 2: Set the Partition Active
  • Fix 3: Create A New Partition
  • Fix 4: Create A New Bootable Device

Fix1: Change the USB Port

If you get the message while installing Windows, you can solve the issue with an easy solution by changing the USB port. It’s something like that you would switch the installation media to the USB 2.0 port from the USB 3.0.

After switching, you have to try to install the Windows Operating System. The device driver might be found then. In case, if it is not found, you would try the next fix.

Fix 2: Set the Partition Active

Another reason behind the issue can be partition deactivtity. Let have a check by following the steps chronologically to fix it.

Step 1

After injecting the installation device into the port, you need to restart your computer. You have to follow the direction to enter into the boot menu. You will see it on the interface.  You will get the Windows installation layout on the screen. Then you have to select language and press ‘Next’.

Step 2

Here, you will find the ‘Repair your computer‘ option on the left bottom. You need to click on it,

Step 3

After entering into the option, you have to choose ‘Troubleshoot‘ among other sections.

Step 4

Here you will find the ‘Advanced option‘. You have to go inside the section.

Step 5

There will be several categories on the screen interface. You need to select ‘Command Prompt‘ here.

Step 6

After pressing on the ‘Command Prompt‘ category, you would select an account and input the password.

Step 7

Next, you have to type the following commands and press ‘enter‘ each time.


‘select disc C’

‘list parition

‘select partition C’


Step 8

Finally, you would restart your computer and check whether you can install Windows or not.

It will be a good sign if it works. But you may need to move for the next fix if it doesn’t work.

Fix 3: Create A New Partition

Creating a new partition can be another fix for the ‘drivers not found’ issue while installing the Windows. Let check the steps-

Step 1

At the very first, you have to take access to ‘command prompt’ again. To do so, you need to follow the sequence one by one- Windows Installation layout > ‘Repair your computer’ > ‘Troubleshoot’ > ‘Advanced options’ > ‘Command prompt’

Step 2

Your next job would be to type the following commands. I would request you not to forget to press ‘enter‘ after typing each command.


‘list disk’

‘select disc o’

‘create partition primary’

‘format fs=ntfs quick’

Step 3

Finally, you have to turn off your computer. Then you would start the computer and try to install windows in the new partition.

If still, the driver isn’t found, you need to follow the last fix.

Fix 4: Create A New Bootable Device

The device driver can’t be found because of the bootable device you injecting to install windows. You can fix it by creating a new bootable device. I will describe it step by step.

Step 1

Firstly, you have to download the ‘Media Creation Tool’ application. You will get it from Microsoft’s official website.

Step 2

After completing the download, you need to run the MediaCreationTool.exe file. To do it, you have to accept the agreement.

Step 5

Here you have to choose the device that you want to make bootable.

Step 6

After selecting the device, the downloading process will start.

Step 7

Finally, you would use the new bootable device to install windows on your computer and check whether it will fix or not.

According to the user experiences, I found the fixes- ‘Change the USB Port’, ‘Set the Partition Active’, ‘Create New Partition’ or ‘Create A New Bootable Device’ worked perfectly after getting the message- ‘no signed device drivers were found’. So, you would try the fixes if you get the message while installing the windows.
