My computer, a Lenovo E460, has a hard drive which recently malfunctioned badly. After wiping the drive and making sure it passed failure tests, I tried to install Windows 7 to it from a USB, since it doesn't have an optical drive. However, whenever I try to set up Windows 7 on this computer I get the message "A required CD/DVD device driver is missing". I've already tried several solutions I read online, like using Rufus to set up the flash drive, moving the flash drive from one port to another and trying to reinstall, and adding USB 3.0 driver support to the flash drive. The same error message keeps coming up, and I'm not sure what's causing it.
Is there anything else I can try to fix this? Thanks in advance for any help provided.
