Windows 7: Wiping Out Everything on Dell XPS 8100 Desktop

There are no USB3 drivers in the Win7 installer so it could be the problem although it should work as a USB2 device too. This is why it's prominently mentioned in both Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and Overcoming Windows 7 Installation Failures - Windows 7 Help Forums

Do you have a DVD to burn from the ISO using Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

Try again with the ATA setting anyway.

If it fails this time unplug the flash stick, click the Red X in top corner of install window, then click Install Now again. You will get a new error message, click OK and plug in the stick to continue install.

I threw all my old cd/dvds out a long time ago. I do have kingston 2.0 flash drive thats 4gb but i could just delete everything there and put the iso file in it then see if it works? The thing was i bought this specific flash drive b/c it was 16gb and b/c i figure that way, i could have everything on it such as my files and also the windows 7 iso file.

A required CD DVD drive device driver is missing. IF you have driver floppy disk, cd, dvd or usb flash drive, insert it now.


Note if the windows instatllation medis is in cd/dvd drive, u can safely remove it for this step

Where did you get the ISO file?

Write the ISO to the other flash stick using Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool

If that doesn't work then get some DVD's. You can get 3 for $2 on the wall by photo dept at Walgreens.
