Windows 7: Missing drivers on fresh install

Missing drivers on fresh install

Hi,

I'm attempting a fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate onto a new build. The specs are as follows:

-Intel Core i7 2600k 3.4GHz Socket 1155 8MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
-Corsair 120GB Force 3 SSD 2.5" SATA-III 6Gb/s Read = 550MB/s, Write = 510MB/s -
-Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance Memory Kit CL9 1.5V
-Coolermaster Elite 330 Case With Coolermaster eXtreme Power 500W PSU
-Asus GTX 560Ti DirectCU II 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDM Out PCI-E Graphicas Card
-Asus P8Z68-V PRO Z68 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard

I've made a bootable USB flash drive with files from MSDN, it seems in perfect working order.
When I attempt the install, everything seems fine until it gets to the beginning of the driver search and it returns with the error: A required CD/DVD device driver is missing.

When I attempt to browse and locate a driver, it doesn't show my SSD at all (despite it being fine in bios) but I can browse any USB etc that I plug in. I've dl'd all raid/mother board drivers I can find from Asus and pointed the installer at them but to no avail. I've also tried changing from IDE-Raid etc, etc in the bios.

I'm assuming that windows is having problems communicating with my SSD for some reason but other than pointing it at the newest drivers I don't really know what else to try.

Any help would be much appreciated as I've spent hours upon hours trying to resolve the situation.

Cheers in advance,

Matt.

Thanks for the reply, I'm just in the middle of trying all the processes you explained. They seem to work up till the point of selecting where I'd like to install from (after cleaning, partitioning and formating etc) then when I go to look windows still doesn't see the drive.

When you were in Diskpart did you set the HD Drive up?

One other thing that might be of interest is that I don't have a DVD drive, i'm using a boot ready flash drive with the files dl'd from MSDN.
