windows 7

I have the same issue why does windows 7 x64 tries to install the drivers instead of instaling windows 7 first! it says can't find the driver of cd/dvd during the installation process while it has been booted up from the same dvd drive huh

i got around it.
i have tried to install this on another computer i made a bootable thumb driver and the mother board does not support it. but it installed correctly with an older player. the dvd player i had was a hp 740 and after reading everyone has troubles with it.

which it does not make sense. it will boot to it and read from it but when installing it would not read it. kinda stupid if you ask me.

Here is my experience with this issue and a solution when I have encountered it.
