I am trying to install windows 7 from dvd but I get the error that the drivers for the dvd/cd are missing...

How can I solve this?


I've tried the following without luck:

  • Removed the dvd drive
  • Burned the installation dvd as an image to a usb stick
  • burned the iso to a new dvd using 1x speed
  • What kind of optical drive do you have? Apr 22, 2011 at 20:24
  • an LG dvd/cd writer

In my experience it has to do with your AHCI settings for your optical drive. Switching back to IDE mode has fixed it for me.

  • It can also be a corrupt burn of the DVD or a corrupt source file that was used to make the DVD.
