my attempt to install windows 7 today ended in
When I boot from the DVD, choose the Language and press "Install" I get an Error message stating "A DVD/CD drive device driver
is missing. If you have a driver CD/Floppy please insert it now..."
Here are my specifications- HP Pavilion p6126f Desktop PC Product Specifications HP Pavilion p6126f Desktop PC - HP technical support (Austria - English)
I have experienced this same problem with Vista x86 and x64.
I am trying to clean install Windows 7 64bit.
I put the drivers
on a thumb drive and Browse to it when 7 prompts me. Funny thing is, Windows 7 reads all the other files on the thumb drive like .psds, .flas, .skps, and so on.... but it just plays stupid to the actual drivers for the motherboard/chipset. The system rejects XP and I was forced to put Ubuntu on it. Ubuntu sucks, nothing runs. I know all about WINE to get some programs to run but I use the entire Adobe Suite.
