    Windows 7 Install A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.

    I decided to test out the Windows 10 Technical preview but a program I need doesn't work with Win 10 TP.
    So I decided to attempt a factory reset however when I started the reset it took about 4 hours to do something I don't know what then I entered my BIOS to select the Windows 7 DVD as a boot drive so it loaded up then it come up saying...

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

    Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------The problem I have is I don't know if I have done something wrong or anything all I know is I followed the steps given to do a factory reset but now this is happening this has happened before when trying to install Windows 8.1 but I gave up the reason I am trying to go back to windows 7 is because I have been given support from Microsoft to fix the Windows 8.1 install and a program I need to use won't work.

    Thanks in advance

    Where did you get your installation media? That happens sometimes when the ISO file is bad or the burn to DVD is bad.

    Once the failure is overcome, your goal should be a perfect install as compiled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which once setup can be saved as a backup image so you never need to do it again.
