I am unable to upgrade my Acer X1300
, which is currently running Windows Vista Home Premium x32, to any Windows 7 variant. When I attempt to do so, I receive the following information upon pressing the "Install Now" button at the main Windows 7 installation menu:
A required CD/DVD device driver
is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
I am unable to proceed with the installation beyond this point. I've updated Vista with SP2 and all important updates, but to no avail. I have also tried updating the chipset drivers
via Acer's website, however that did not seem to make a difference either. I have read many articles and reviews about the X1300 being able to install and run Windows 7 very smoothly, however this does not appear to be the case with my system.
Anyone have any ideas? How should I proceed?
Thanks in advance for any help!
