insert the media device and select the driver windows 7

My friend is trying to install windows 7 from a usb flash drive. It boots fine from usb fine and starts the setup however when she goes to install it asks "insert the media device and select the driver windows 7". Ive looked around the forums and google and found that this can be a usb 2.0 , 3.0 problem with people just switching to the 2.0 slot and it working. However this does not work for her and so I looked around more and found it might be needing the drivers for the USB ports had her insert the disc that came with the motherboard however non of the setups in the usb folder work and im not sure which specific file she needs to choose to get the driver to install or 100 % if that is even the issue. Any ideas? Intel® Desktop Board DZ68DB - Overview this is the board Forgot to mention this hard drive is from her older computer so its a new motherboard / cpu / ram.

I could be wrong here, but since the PC boots from the USB drive and starts the installation, it obviously does not need to install drivers to use the USB drive. My guess is that it wants drivers for the hard drive.

I considered that as well , When installing drivers in this way do you have to find the specific driver that is needed or can you just use the setup in that folder.

The error usually means the USB stick is not formatted correctly or the ISO is bad.

Where did you get the Windows 7 ISO? Confirm it's integrity or download another,.

Then write to USB flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in the dropdown menu.
