SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
When I installed vista it made a 10 gig partition for a system restore... I figure I would delete and reformat it when doing a clean 64bit install through the custom install menu...

in any case... i'm not too worried about "optimizing" right now... I just need to solve the issue with the missing cd/dvd driver...

Going back to post #1, you burned your own .iso to DVD & USB flash, but you get this install error. Where did you get your .iso ? You might have a bad download

Yes, that is a valid .iso from them. I would re-download a new copy of it to a different folder. Then Burn with ImgBurn at 4x speed with verify ON !

Will try it... better than nothing. Re-Downloading it will take a while.

In the mean time... anything other suggestions? Should I download 32bit to try it out and see if it works? I read that it hasn't worked for others either...

Yes, I know the DL will take awhile. But a good DL & Burn should install without needing any DVD drivers

I'll watch for your update

If its the intel chipset download and install this - intel matrix storage manager -

Can cause problems when you have AHCI enabled in the bios and you install the os, and dont install the matrix manager - installing this fixes problems with dvd drives.

I ended up "updating" to 32bit windows 7 and from there, I installed the Intel Matrix storage driver... and then I was able to do a clean install to 64bit. Not sure what fixed it... but it works now.

Thanks!
