    Windows 7 Installation: A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missi


    The laptop is HP, and it has two modes: UEFI and Legacy.
    1. I keep the two modes enabled.
    2. I use Rufus to create a bootable USB drive with Windows 7.
    3. I restart the laptop, then press F9 to open the Boot Manager: Image of the Boot Manager , and then i select "USB Hard Drive (UEFI) - USB

    And when i try to install Windows 7, i get the following error: Image of the error

    When i click on "Browse", i don't see the USB drive's name: Image of the available options

    Keep in mind i already tried the method presented in this video: [SOLVED] USB Windows 7 Installation | A Required CD-DVD Drive Device Driver is Missing - YouTube , but it turned out that GIGABYTE's tool is no longer available here: Utility | Service / Support - GIGABYTE U.S.A.

    So, can someone help me? I really need help, i don't know how to solve the problem by myself.

    Thanks.

    I tried the method, but didn't work.
