15 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Drivers not found during install

Ok I've already read the section about this here on these forums, i tried to run the install DVD with AHCI enabled, disabled, and even one time trying to boot in non driver signature mode.

Nothign seems to work, every time it hangs and gives me the same error about not beign able to find drivers for the DVD/CD player.

Also I do not have a 4 GB or larger flash drive that I can boot from .

Windows XP
Asus D2X
Nvidia 8800 GTX
Q6600 intel quad core ( core 2 quad )
antec 900 gamign case
5 GB DDR2 800

Have you tried running Setup.exe from within Windows? Just insert the disc, and it should give you the choice. If not, Open the disc in My Computer, and run setup.exe.

Good luck!

"autrun.dll couldn't not be initialized or is corrupted"

I thought because this is Win XP you can't install from within the windows system you have to do it at boot?

Do you have a Vista DVD?

Try booting from it, then when you get to Custom drives screen where you choose where to install Windows 7, change out the DVD to Windows 7.

Try removing all but 2gb RAM. Test RAM first using Windows Diagnostic Memory Test.

If not, where did you get Windows 7? If downloaded, hashcheck the ISO to confirm its integrity, then verify the ISO against DVD using ImgBurn.
