Windows 7: RC-7 Install looking for cd/dvd drivers

RC-7 Install looking for cd/dvd drivers

I cannot load the rc-7 beta due to a driver issue with a cd/dvd driver. I have one each of a dvd reader-cd r/w and a dvd writer. I've checked the rc-7 catalog and drivers page but found nothing. I tried switching the drives and disconnecting each but to no avail. Any help is very much appreciated. Mike

I think youll find that windows will automatically install the drivers for your devices. Shouldnt be a problem

You say you cannot load the RC. Are you saying you cannot boot off the DVD media that you burned, or that the drive / media is not recognized in your current OS?

I do get to a boot screen. I select install & then get the error.
I have also made a boot drive using a compact flash card with the same results.
I have read elsewhere that unplugging everything you can & disabling all but the essentials in the bios may do it. I'l give that a try when I get the chance.
Mercurials post sound like it would be worth a try as well. It's a shame that I wipped my XP drive after 2 yrs of non-use.I would have loaded it from that.
