A key driver needed for CD - DVD drive is missing
To do a total cleanup of my laptop and reinstall Win 7 32bit.
It is a:
Dell Precision Mobile WorkStation M6400.
But a problem immediately with the error message:
"A key driver needed for CD - DVD drive is missing"
Then just my DVD / CD may malfunction (rails sometimes with CDs), I thought
the fault lay there.
Made a bootable usb, changed boot order via the F12 but may
exactly the same error message still
Googled around a bit and find many people who get the same error.
But this will then stop when I do not really understand what the problem is.
And have not found anyone who has a solution to the problem without more proposals for updating
Driver / business software for DVD / CD player (updated)
Others have suggested that you should disconnect the DVD / CD player entirely.
Someone speaks about the jumper.
Now I know soon not sure how I should do anymore.
Is used to reformat / reinstall everything from 3.11 (a hundred years ago), Win 95, 98, ME, XP.
However, not Vista.
Much of the support is in English and here I get a little difficult with
Judgement technical terms .. unfortunately.
So the sum of my problem then is that I now sit with a bootable USB with Win 7 but will not be one meter ahead anyway.
I also have windows disc but it does not work.
What is known. malfunctioning unit should then be this, I think:
HLDS HLDS GS20N 9.5mm Slot Load DVDRW SATA
Firma Ware is uppdated.
Thanks in advance.

Make sure your BIOS is up to date. If so, reset the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
Set SATA controller in BIOS to AHCI first, then IDE if necessary.
Wipe the HD before trying install: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation Partition using Step 2.2 to mark Primary NTFS partition Active.
Remove all but 2gb of RAM to try install, swap RAM.
Remove floppy drive from machine and in BIOS. Next try removing DVD drive to use USB.
