Hey all, I briefly searched the boards before creating this post, but was unable to find a solution to my problems.
I am trying to do a fresh install of Windows 7 on my new SATA hard drive, but when I get into the Windows 7 installer, it gives me the error "A required CD/DVD drive device diver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, DC, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now."
This seems to be a rather common issue across the internet, but I have tried several possible solutions, but to no avail.
Here is my computer setup:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI
Processor: AMD Athalon 3500+
Hard drives: (2x) PATA drives (1x) SATA drive
Optical Drive: Lite-On SHW-160H6S DVD dual layer drive
Currently, I have Windows XP installed on one of the PATA drives, and am trying to get Windows 7 on the SATA drive (ideally I want to be able to have dual operating systems).
Any ideas on how I can go about solving this issue?
