Windows 7 image on USB Won't find Drivers

I have a copy of windows 7 which I burned. When booting from the disk I get a error saying it can't find the drivers. I have tried making a bootable usb drive from the .iso file using Microsoft's usb tool, the tool finishes says everything was successful. But when I boot from the usb drive it also comes with the same error about not finding the drivers.
Need help! Was up till 4 am (PST) trying to find a answer to no avail.

Thanks all in advance.

The error is almost always a bad installer.

Try burning confirmed ISO from Windows 7 ISO downloads with ImgBurn at 4x speed, or writing to stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive which always works for me.

If it persists then you may need to supply the driver for the SATA controller at the Load Drivers link on Drive Selection screen.

Have not forgotten, but I'm on my computer at home then at work. But this is annoying my wife that the computer used at home is not working. Stay tuned.

When using MobaLiveCD I get a error when running it
"An error occurred while copying file kqemu.sys.
Cannot copy file to destination directory.
Click Retry to retry the operation or click Cancel to"

If I click retry the error pops up again, if I click cancel a pop-up comes up and says
"Do you want to continue Setuup without coping this file?"
no still will bring up the first error message and no will bring up the error
"Installation failed"

Any clue's???

BTW, I was surfing the net and read "The file kqemu.sys is a Windows driver. A driver is a small software program that allows your computer to communicate with hardware or connected devices."

Is this correct? and is there a solution to this??

What does mobalive cd have to do with any of the possible solutions I gave you?

We have a 100% install record in countless thousands of cases here, if you'll interact with the steps given, reporting back results of each to receive more steps if necessary.

I was using it to test the work ability of the install package, this was linked on the page you sent me to get the Ultra ISO program.

But I'll try it now without the test and re-post results

Same error as n 1st post "No device drivers were found. Make sure that installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK.

Is this a new ISO you wrote to stick, from Windows 7 official ISO downloads?

If you've now tried separate ISO's with separate methods to write them, then I would move on to providing the SATA driver because it might be the rare case where it needs one to proceed.

The SATA driver is an element of the chipset, which can be found by unzipping the chipset from your mobo or PC Support Downloads webpage.

Browse into the SATA folder from the Load Drivers link to see what it wants.
