i have the same problem with "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."
i have a dell mini 10 (1012) & it doesn't have a dvd drive. i have Windows 7 home premium (upgraded from starter). i made a bootable usb stick (downloaded iso file from mintywhite & then made the bootable stick). that process worked fine.
when i try to do the re-install, however, get the message noted above. i've spent days trying to sort this out & am going crazy. i read on another post to 'disable the raid function in bios'. IF i need to do that - could someone please tell me how? also, after i (hopefully) can do the re-install, do i need to enable the raid function again?
i also tried downloading ALL my dell drivers & tried the re-install with them on another flash drive stuck in the machine.
please help. PLEASE!!!
