    when Installing Windows 7 I get an error saying ""A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note: If the windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step." What should I do to get Windows to install?

    Are you using a newly burned copy or one you have used before, if it is new, might have burned poorly which is causing that error.

    I guess that is possable because it was newly burned. That was my last DVD though, witch sucks. How else can I install it?

    Thank you, it worked with the flash drive. Does anyone know how to integrate files to the OS install though? I would like to add winrar.
