Hey there. I have read several threads about this problem since it seems to be vast, however not a single thread has offered a fix for this issue and it is something I've been fighting for about 4 hours.
I currently have an XP SP3 pc running x32 and I want to upgrade to Win 7 Prof. x64. The processor is an Athlon II x64 so I know it can handle it. The main problem I am having is this error message...
"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a floppy disc,
cd, dvd or flash usb drive please insert it now."
I do have a copy of Vista handy because it came with a new laptop I bought a year ago, so would I have to upgrade XP to Vista and then Vista to 7? I'm pretty tired of the run around with lack of adequate information, so if anyone can help out then that would be great. Thanks.
