    Default "a required cd/dvd driver is missing"

    hi all,

    i know there has been a thread on this previously, and have tried everything in that thread that i can with my motherboard.... i have

    gigabyte H55M-S2H mobo
    nvidia 9800 geforce graphics card
    seagate barracuda 500g hard disk (sata)
    samsung super writemaster cd/dvd (also sata)
    intel core i5 750

    i can load up the windows 7 disk, it asks me to pick a language, the after a few minutes of "setup is starting" (setup is also really slow).

    im guessing this is not a dvd driver problem as it loaded the dvd fine, im thinking its to do with the sata controller.

    i have the hdd pluged into sata0 and the dvdd in sata5

    have tried every driver that i can lay my hands on and most combinations of bios settings, could someone point me in the direction of a driver or a solution.

    thanks for your time
    julian

    You should also put your hard drive in SATA2_0, and your CD drive in SATA2_5. I see you said this, just be sure.

    You may need to reburn your install CD, if you do burn it at the slowest setting.

    Do you have AHCI enabled? Shouldn't matter though because windows 7 has AHCI and RAID Drivers, just wondered what you are setting is all.

    yes i have ahci enabled and have the hdd and the dvd plugged in that way... i do not seem to have all these bios settings to disable floppy disks and so on? i have eliminated them from the boot order.

    also on the boot list there is a cd/dvd rom option and an option refering to my specific dvdd.

    i have already reburned and verified the disk and it comes up with the same problem.

    im on the verge of installing xp and upgrading but i dont really want to........

    did you disable floppy drive here? it can make installing win7 realy slow and sometimes wont install if its enabled,disable drive A in that screenshot below



    also i dont know whether your dvd has an updated firmware for you to download?? or are there any jumpers on the back of the dvd drive for you to set as master or slave?? if there are set it to master

    The floppy setting is at the very bottom of the CMOS page in the BIOS

    A clean install would be needed from AHCI to IDE mode since you can't access windows to change the registry. Even though install has not finished it may have gotten far enough past this that it isn't possible

    hi,

    there is no floppy in that list for me and the list totally empties once i turn ahci on, i just figured this was normal as its an ide list but its worth checking?

    i have just got it to boot in ide mode by going into the f12 boot drive list but the driver error still comes up...

    do you have a spare dvd drive to try?? just want to add do you have both xp and win7 disks?? try with xp and see if it installs if it does its most likely your win7 disc is faulty,second thing is to try with a different drive
