Windows 7 installation problem usb

Windows 7 Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is Missing Error Fix

Updated Version of an error;

A a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing error

Most of the time this kind of error appears to be a Windows Installer disc or USB media or the source iso file is corrupt.

Even if the Windows Installer is working in another computer, it was  not the reason  the said installer is working to another model of latest laptop.

I have encounter the problem already for about three times, and most of the solution replace the Windows 7 DVD Installer.

For those who install using the bootable USB thumb drive

For newer desktop computer or laptop with USB 3.0 Ports, be sure to plug it in USB 2.0 ports to avoid the error.

    Found a solution that worked for me (USB install only) When the message comes up click the little "x" button, then click the same button on the main installer. This should bring you back to the "welcome" screen. Then remove the usb and plug it into a different port. This then let me install windows with no problems

    Also, from BIOS, choose "AUTO" for USB 3.0 instead of "ENABLE". with this selection, USB 3.0 drivers act as 2.0 during pre-boot. Even I use the only USB2.0 port on my device, only after selecting this option, the error message disappeared.

    Thanks for the video, but didn't help me. I found a fix that worked for me was to simply install from a usb 2.0 port rather than a 3.0.

    You don't need to do all those things, man. When you see this message – push cancel button and move back to INSTAL NOW button. Then remove your USB from a port and select DIFFERENT usb port. Turn your USB IN and push the Install NOW button. You'r done.

    in my case, this error appeared when installing from usb device on the usb 3.0 port. when putting in the usb 2.0 port the installation worked just fine

    I assume all of you are using USB drive to install. When Windows is asking for driver, just click Cancel. You will be brought back to the welcome screen. At the welcome screen, remove your USB drive, insert it back to DIFFERENT USB PORT. Click Install Now again. The installation process will be like usual. This problem happened to all new version of updated Windows 7 installer. I think, it is due to failure of Windows installer to remain its detection to the USB drive. It lost the connection, and became confused, don't know where to find the USB drive it used to read before. When we re-insert the USB drive, Windows installer will detect the USB drive back, and continue like usual. Good luck and cheers!

    Thanks for the comments and appreciate it.

    But based on my experience, all problem with this kind of error is just changing the installer.

    Hope it helps…
