I'm attempting to make my win 7 laptop dual boot to a vhd where I will install server 2008 r2. Creating the vhd, booting to it, with a bootable usb drive w/ the server 2008 r2 sp1 iso, no problem. During the install it complains about not having a driver for the cd-rom, which on my laptop is a blu-ray. In Windows 7 the driver is the standard cdrom.sys. But I cannot seem to find a driver for this that will allow the install of server 2008 r2 to proceed? Any ideas out there?

This question came from our site for professional system and network administrators.
Finally gave up trying to find a better cdrom.sys, and just removed the drive. Install went fine, and once I had the os up and running, put the blu-ray drive back in and it even recognized it fine. Very odd.
