Windows 7: DVD/CD driver problem

DVD/CD driver problem

hi all,

so, im trying to rid my computer of the horried OS known as vista, the only problem is that as soon as i select the language and keyboard it comes up with a loading screen saying "starting setup" or something along those lines, straight after that it shows a screen asking for CD/DVD drivers (which dont exist as far as i know) with no way of continuing without them i dont know what to do

i have seen this thread posted a few times on multiple sites but never found a actual fix.

normaly i would just install from disc, not from boot but i need to change my HDD's partions

there is also a slight diffrence in cercumstances from most people too, a few days ago my pc's DVD burner decided to stop reading disk's properly, and the only way for my pc to boot from disk is by a new cd drive (i dont have a large enough flash drive) so i got a Sony plug 'n' play USB DVD writer and so after starting the W7 pro disc this error starts.

Any ideas? please?

Hi, welcome to the forums

I have read a couple of solutions that you may want to try...

1, (Depending on where you got your W7 disk) You may need to re-download & re-burn the ISO at a slower speed.
2, In the BIOS, disable IDE emulation from advanced settings

If that fails then you may need to get your friend to re-backup the original at 4X speed, max.

Are you overinstall a 32bit OS with 64bit Windows 7?

OP is installing from bootup so it shouldn't make a difference but you never know

Windows 7 x64 does not like over installing a 32bit OS.
Most of the time you will receive a NO CD/DVD drivers pop up.
