Windows 7: "DVD drive device drivers missing" in Win7 installation setup

01 Jun 2010   #11

Windows 7

Oh by the way, when you say "repair console", Do you mean on the Windows 7 install disc?
Because when I select "Repair Computer", It takes a while and then I get a dialogue box with 2 buttons, 2 radial buttons, and 2 empty fields:It's all blank.
I click on a button and it brings me to another dialogue box that is slightly different, but yet, still all blank.

This has made me believe it is a 'badburn"

Yes, reinstall Vista 64 with the license key stickered to the tower. It will be a much cleaner install without factory bloatware and it will be legal.

When you can afford to buy Win7 Home Premium upgrade version (for around $105 if you shop around) then we can help you with it's install since we do not assist with piracy here.

Well, As long as I have the authentication code then I own Vista64 for life.
Since anyone can own a Vista64 disc without a code, then the disc is simply a 30 day trial version that anyone can own.
In this case it is not piracy.

So, can anyone help me with a resource that I can get another -reliable- copy of Vista64?

I recommend borrowing one from a friend.

Any installer can have all versions unlocked using the ei.cfg removal tool, so that you can install your licensed version: Ei.cfg Removal Utility Lets You Use Any Product Key With Your Windows 7 Disc

Safe cautious downloading is an option but also not promoted here because it encourages piracy.
