Windows 7: Drivers Needed for Install

Windows 7 32-bit
Drivers Needed for Install

After an entire day of trying to fix my laptop and get it to Reset to Factory Image I have found that the Setup.exe file to install Win7 is on my hard drive (X:Boot). Only problem is I get this error when I try to install it.

A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a ddriver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

Does anyone know what drivers I need to install the OS? I have seen threads about changing the AHCI or something. I am new at this stuff and the only options in my BIOS regarding the AHCI is to change my SATA controller from AHCI to Compatibility. Both options do not solve my problem. I am booting from the DVD drive which has a Windows 7 32-bit Recovery Disc in it. Any help? Thanks
