Hi all! This is my first post and I greatly appreciate any input/help!
I recently bought a refurbished Hp m6-1035dx, with OEM windows home premium 64bit.
Additionally I also purchased a Samsung 830 SSD and and Optical Bay Caddy. My plan is to install the SSD in the Main Drive Bay and tranfer the current stock hitachi HDD into the Optic Bay. I was considering cloning my OS to the SSD, but decided to go for a fresh install of Windows 7 instead, considering my current OS files take up 40gb (which seems like a lot to me). So considering I have an OEM Windows 7 I opted to try the USB installation, using the guide provided on this forum. Everything was going well until I received the Device Driver
error message "A required CD/DVD device driver is missing...etc" which is followed by the option to browse for the device driver. I have read numerous forums on this issue and none of the solutions have worked for me. For example I have tried switching the USB ports, I have actually tried all my USB ports, with no success. Some forums suggest I load the SATA/RAID drivers
into my USB and then select those through the browse option. I have no tried this yet, as I have thus far been unsuccessful in locating these drivers. My next move was to burn the ISO onto a disc instead.
Does anyone have any ideas?!
I greatly appreciate any help!
