Installing Win7 Ultimate x64 on New System: "Select a DVD Driver"
I am trying to install Win7 Ultimate x64 on a new system I have just built. When I try to install the OS from a boot disk, I recieve the "Select a driver to install" prompt instead of continuing installation.
First of all, I've been searching around this forum and the rest of the internet for about 2 days for this problem, and I'm well aware that the first suggested solution is to "Re-burn the Installation DVD or switch to USB". I switched to a USB drive, which failed. So I tried getting a fresh download, and that failed.
I have checked the following threads already:
Windows 7 Installation Errors : Troubleshoot Step by Step
Common Installation Problems and Their Solutions
Questions to use for help with Installation Issues
Tutorial quick reference list for Installing Windows 7
Are there any other causes for this issue? It seems like the only explanation most people have points to DVD burning faults as the cause.

Could be a faulty ISO. Start over with Steps 1 and 2 from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
I notice you are also overclocking. I would disable that now for the install.
If that fails try removing all but 2gb RAM to try install.
Reset BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
Set SATA controller to AHCI, HD first to boot, trigger DVD drive using one-time Boot Menu.
Unplug DVD drive when you try Flash stick install in case DVD drive itself is the problem.
