Installing windows 7 from flash drive

im having problems installing from my flash drive, everything seems to work fine up untill the point where windows gathers the information. It tells me "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert now."

and i have no idea how to get past this.

some good solutions would be nice =]

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

bryson, you seem to be missing a required CD/DVD device driver.

Can you fill in your system specs (left lower corner), that will allow for better and more helpful answers.

Do you have another USB drive you can put the required driver? It might be just that,

Tks and welcome to the forums

I saw a post where someone said they had to remove the Flash drive prior to subsequent boots. Are you leaving yours in!

I have not tried this myself, so I am not sure.
