hi apichartl,

Thanks for posting. Was readingthrough your thread and was wondering about the message that appeared. Did this happen after you installed the RAM and booted into windows again or when you ran the widows 7 disk to install the OS. I'm wondering because I trying a full understanding of what exactly happened here.

This may not be anything new but I am sure the model of this laptop is. I have the Retail Windows 7 Prof 64-bit and wanted to downgrade the Lenovo Yoga 3 Prof to Win-7 from Win 8.1. As Yoga 3 does not comes with DVD drive, I converted the ISO from DVD to a USB thumb drive. I started the NOVO to bios setting and disable Secure boot and Boot priorty through Legacy.... When Windows 7 gets started, the welcome screen only show "INSTALL" and immediately i did. Instead of processing the stage of showing the partition drive and selection, the screen show an error: "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.If you have a driver 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. I tried to browse for the driver and the browse button only show C, D and X Drive where these drive are partition of the Yoga 3 256GB SSD. I had tried disable the UEFI and downloaded a couple of Intel series SATA ACHI family controller but neither one is helping to overcome the installation error. Please help your option to resolve. Need solution urgently. Thanks a million

Answer:Downgrading Windows 7 Prof on Yoga 3 Pro - "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing”

Have called Lenovo Support and they have no clue and any suggestion how to resolve this technical glitch. They only said the system is built best to perform Windows 8.1 and there is no leads to any downgrade of OS. Now I realise how terrible Lenovo support is as they do not show any assistance to user issue. I have tried downgrading a Yoga 2 Pro and there is no problem. This is the first time to downgrade Yoga 3 Pro and was told this is a new model. now I am really stuck here.

Because I couldn't get properly running some games like FFOW on my Windows 7 (not compatible) I decided to buy 64bit Vista Ultimate.
But while installation ,required CD/DVD drive device driver missing, message was shown.
I looked at some forums and found was problem also somewhere else for some other people...
I tried couple of things whitch didn't work for me but luckily I found a solution.
Here it is:



Thats what worked for me.

In BIOS setting (while start up press F2) at Advanced Tab there is a SATA Operation:AHCI (not RAID but I don't know, even RAID maight work) and SATA AHCI Mode: I changed from Legacy AHCI to Native AHCI.

As described at Item Specific Help Tab: Native AHCI will load option ROM, but legacy will not.

Before while instalation Wista Ultimate 64 bit on my Alienware x17 aftere while was message shown:

During install "required CD/DVD drive device driver missing"

After changing SATA AHCI mode in BIOS to Native AHCI while setup was soon shown field requiere serial number...GREAT!!!

When instaling I manually reboot couple of times when just black screen with blinking cursor was shown (and nothing was happening...)

Now my Vista 64 bit is fully intaled, thanks to all guys at forums to let me thing and inspired me to find (with a bit of good luck) solution.

I had similar problem like many of you, wish you good luck to make your system working (if you need to)

Hello,

I am not sure if this is the correct location to post this, so if I should post it somewhere else, please let me know.

I am trying to use my bluetooth to connect a ps3 controller. I have successfully been able to do it in the past (I believe the last time was about 1.5-2 years ago). Now when I try to use it, the bluetooth adapter no longer seems to be found. I have looked into updating the drivers but when I run the installation it tells me to enable the bluetooth by using the wireless switch. This switch only affects the wifi and has no effect on bluetooth. When I look in the device manager, there is nothing that seems to show bluetooth. So, I suppose my questions would be, is there away to force an install of a driver? How would I uninstall a current driver to try for a clean install of new drivers? And finally, would all this even point to a driver issue or has my bluetooth hardware just died on me?

Thanks for any help, sorry if there is more information I should post for this that I have failed to mention. Please let me know what is needed, and probably how to get it, I am not necessarily the greatest with all the in depth technical computer know how.

To say I am a bit of a 'noob' would be an understatement. My wife has a HP Pavilion dv9500, running Vista Home Premium. Her CD-drive stopped working and I researched the problem to find a fix. I read in forums I could delete registry files, and I did, but they were the wrong ones. So, her laptop shut down and would not boot past the initial startup screen.

I removed the HDD to see if everything was wiped off the HD, and it was. So, I decided to reinstall Vista, only to find out I did not have the recovery disk. I made a bootable USB drive and tried loading a fresh install of Vista that way, but I keep getting the following message, after hitting "install now":

"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver 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."


So, I downloaded drivers for both the dv9500 and the dv9628nr, because both are on the bottom sticker. However, none of the drivers would show up as compatible, or show up at all, actually. What am I doing wrong?!

Also, it is worth mentioning that I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium, because I plan on installing it after I get the current problem fixed. The cd-drive lights up and sounds like it is spinning, but it doesn't show up when hitting F9...

Apparently, I am one of many who seem to be having this issue. And just like everybody else, I turned to Google for some answers. Here is my scenario (perhaps gregrocker could point me in the right direction?):

I am running on a laptop with the following specs:

Dell Studio 1735
32-bit Vista Home Premium, SP1
Intel 2 Core Duo, T8100 @ 2.10 GHz
250 GB SATA HDD, 5400 RPM
4 GBs of RAM
256 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
8x Slot Load CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

I downloaded the .iso image of Windows 7 through the software program at Penn State and burned it to a DVD. When I restart my computer and boot off of the DVD drive, I get the Windows 7 Installation interface. As the setup begins, I get an error message that says "Load Driver" across the top of the window, and says "A required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is missing". I tried a few things to circumvent this issue:

1. I swapped out the installation CD with one of the CD's that came with my laptop that contains all of my device drivers. It found one compatible driver for the ATA/ATAPI Controller, and despite selecting it and hitting next, it didn't work.

2. I took the service tag from my laptop, downloaded each and every driver that it's associated with, burned it to an .iso, and swapped THAT out when I tried to install. Again, nothing happened.

3. I mounted the .iso onto an 8GB Cruzer and made a bootable flash drive. Upon trying the install again, I had the same problem.

Answer:Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

Try extracting the ISO to Vista desktop to run Setup from there.

You can locate the driver in Vista's Device Manager SATA controller Driver info tab.

The fact that it would duplicate the error for USB flash install sounds like a malfunction.

Try removing 2 gb of RAM.

Check BIOS version to see if you have the latest.

Instead of a new thread I thought I would ask here as I get the same issue saying no CD/DVD drive. Doing diskpart/list disk shows that there are no disks available, even though I have 2 drives installed( 1 ssd/1 hdd). One currently has windows installed, and one is blank. I am basically trying to flash an existing image from an identical workstation over. It wont let me use the image, install win7 from usb, install win7 from disc(using 2 different isos). I created the usb stick with a real iso through Windows 7 usub dvd download tool. I also inserted the oem driver disc, and it will not find that.

Any other ideas to try?

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"

Hi, James: Most likely the media you are using is incomplete or a bad burn of the DVD if you made the installation media yourself from the ISO download on digital river. There are no drivers missing. W7 has all the necessary drivers to install on your model. Follow these instructions and see if you can get W7 installed that way. I would use the MS ISO to USB tool. Make absolutely sure you get the entire ISO file when you see the download complete message. Sometimes it reports the download is complete and your ISO file is much smaller than what it said was downloading. Use the W7 pro product key you have. Use the Windows 7 USB/DVD installation tool to compile the ISO file you download from Digital River. Link  below. You need a 4 GB flash drive to use the USB method of compilation. http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool/3000-18513_4-10972600.html Then go to the PC's support and driver page to install the drivers you need. Link to the W7 ISO file downloads is below. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/14709-Windows-7-Digital-River-direct-links-Multiple-Languag...

He guys,
im trying to install the new develp build of win8 (x86) on my asus eeepc 1005pe. This is a netbook which doesnt even have a cd/dvd drive.
So anyway, I extracted the iso on a bootable usb flash drive. I boot, and when I click install it just hangs for about 10 minutes and then it gives me this error:

I tried setting the bios from AHCI to IDE. This does not help, I even get a bluescreen of death when I boot up in the current win7 sp1 install. But anyway on google I read a lot about this problem and one of the solutions is to put it on AHCI.. but not for me as it was already on AHCI. Anyway IDE is not workin either.
So im kinda lost.. just recently I installed win7sp1 on this netbook without a problem. I checked the sha1 hashes of the win8 ISO and they are confirmed, so that is not the problem either.


Can anyone help me with this problem?

Answer:Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

What to try:

Change the BIOS setting from IDE to AHCI or RAID (if your planning to use RAID).

AHCI is for SATA components, HD, DVD etc.
If AHCI or RAID is set in the BIOS it will install the drivers.

Windows 7 is trying to find IDE drivers for a SATA DVD.

Change the BIOS and try the install again.

Some users have also reported that they solved this problem by deleting the recovery partitions that came with the computer.

If you still have problems with the DVD drive try installing with a USB memory key: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ve-create.html

If nothing is working, try clearing your CMOS. There is usually an option in the BIOS to reset to defaults, or something along those lines.

Hi there guys, im trying to install windows 7 on my friends Dell XPS 625, but I get this error message when I try and install it: a required cd dvd drive device driver is missing.

I have read that its some kind of AHCI problem and that downloading this: AHCI for Windows 7 (AMD RAID/SATA Drivers) and loading it on a USB stick whilst getting the error message will fix my problem?

Also do I have to extract the file in windows first before I put it on the USB? Because I have tried it on a USB and it didnt recognise it

Also the HD has been wiped clean with killdisk so he dosent have an OS right now.

Any help will be great, thanks!

Answer:A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

Yes, you have to extract the drivers and copy them to the USB stick. Once you've done that, start the Windows install and then insert the USB stick. When prompted for AHCI/RAID drivers, press the appropriate function key and browse to the flash drive.

Answer:A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.

I'm not sure.

If it's the same as Windows 7, the most likely cause for that is corrupt installation media. As you're using a USB installer, the problem may be with the .iso itself.

If you can check the hash code on the .iso. that'd be the surest way to verify it.

I try to install Windows 7 Home Premium on an ASUS G75VW notebook - Original OEM dvd which is tested ok on other computers - not a dvd disk issue and I get the annoying error:
Windows 7: A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

The notebook doesn't have a dvd drive - it was completely removed for some reason.
It has 4 USB 3.0 only ports. No usb 2.0 ports.
I use external cd/dvd drive. In BIOS I can make the drives working in IDE/AHCI/RAID. My issue is why Windows gives the same error regardless if I use AHCI/IDE setting from BIOS? Where is the logic in this? Also I see all the three hard disk drives on the notebook regardless of BIOS settings except trying RAID because the user don't use it (yes they are really three - 1 ssd and 2 hdd). I will try using the ahci drivers from ASUS and say did they helped.

Answer:Windows 7: A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

Probably an anomaly due to the external HD, very doubtful it really needs that driver. Keep the SATA controller set to AHCI in BIOS setup, set HDD first to boot.

Use the lastest official installer for your licensed version from Step 1, written to bootable flash stick with tool from Step2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Boot the Stick using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Stick with the steps in the tutorial to get and keep a perfect install. Delete all partitions during install using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create and format new as you wish.

Put your network driver on the stick from the Asus Support Downloads webpage for your model PC so if the installer doesn't provide it you can install it to get online, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then install all Important and Optional Windows UPdates, with reboots as required, until there are no more offered.

Once installed you can keep the flash stick bootable if needed for repairs. Just leave the seven installer folders untouched in the root of the stick. You can add/delete as many other files or applications as you want.

At the moment the HDD is clean and when I try to install windows7 i get the following error:"Load Driver:a required dvd drive device is missing". I tried everything that I found on this forum/google related to this problem but with no success.

Any ideas are welcomed , thank you.

Hey Everyone,

I have tried everything suggested. I starting to wonder if it's just not meant to be. Let me first start out with my specs.

Processor:

A couple of day's ago I bought an ISO from:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium DOWNLOAD ONLY | Discount Mountain Software

They sent me a download link and the Product Key via email. I downloaded the CD used Microsoft's DVD/USB tool. Went to install. It loads the files then shortly after I click Language and Install it tell's me "Required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing".

So I google it. First thing I try is Microsoft's fix. located here: "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" or "A media driver your computer needs is missing" error message when you install Windows

Now, I'm using DvD -R could this be the issue? After burning 3 the first one burned at two high of a Speed I'm guessing the second time I burned at like 4x using PowerISO. None of them have worked. I also used Microsofts burning tool.

i have two computers (1 pc and 1 laptop) that i am putting windows 7 ultimate on. i have a key each for the pc's but not the original disk. i have previousley downloaded a windows 7 disk that worked great. installed straight away on the both systems. both pc's now have viruses due to my mother and brother lol. so i dug out the windows 7 disk today and it's been scratched beyond repair. so i had to download the disk again. however i cannot find the exact download that i had last time but i have tried two seperate dowloads and when trying to install each one i get the error message " required cd/dvd drive device driver missing" it's so frustrating as i know windows7 will install on them as that's what they're running now. does anyone have any ideas what it could be.

Hi -

You need a genuine Windows 7 DVD.

Contact Microsoft --> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/326246

If OEM version, contact system manufacturer regarding replacement media.

After genuine Windows 7 DVD is obtained, wipe the HDD with KillDisk and reinstall Windows 7 -

Hello All

I'm trying to do a clean install of Win7 Pro 64-Bit, inc SP1, on a friends HP EliteBook 850 G3 via a bootable USB stick drive.

The installation started, then I got the missing device driver error message above.

I tried again with the OEM disc in an external USB optical drive and got the same message.

The EliteBook 850 G3 only has USB 3 ports... which I think may be the issue.

Does anyone know a way 'round this problem?

Thanks!

Answer:Win7 install: A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing...

Okay, problem solved; I used the Win7 USB 3 Creator Utility.

When you follow the link go to the "Search Downloads" field and start typing in USB 3, it should be the 4th result.

When you run the application follow the instructions carefully; it took about 20mins to add the USB 3 drivers to my bootable USB stick, and you'll know it's finished when you see "Update finished!" in the dialog box.

Hi,

I have a known working image of Windows 7 on a flash drive.

However, if trying to install Windows 7 by booting from the flash drive I get "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing usb"

I have tried removing and reinserting the usb.

I found a link https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...reator-Utility

that is supposed to put the drivers for usb 3.0 in the installation files. That did not work.

I have tried downloading the usb files from the manufacturer Acer for usb 3.0 and then navigating to them via browse and found files that showed up, but that did not work.

I also tried installing drivers for AHCI, CardReader, Chipset by clicking browse and navigating to the hard drive. All to no avail.

I am now going to see if putting the USB driver files on the flash drive will work. Would this make a difference? And should I potentially try this with the other driver files as well?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi there,

I was wondering if any of you could help me out. I have a Dell XPS 15z L511Z laptop (64 bit, Windows 7, 500GB hard drive, 6GB RAM). Two nights ago, I was factory restoring the laptop to its default settings, when partway through, the screen flickered a couple times, and then restarted with a message saying
?BOOTMGR IS MISSING
PRESS CTRL+ALT+DEL TO RESTART?Weird? It?s not doing anything. I unfortunately don?t have the DVD?s for the laptop, except for one driver disc. I popped it into the laptop, and it didn?t even read the disc ? it just spit it back out. Tried it a few more times, and nothing doing. I didn?t want to force it in, so I figure that wasn?t working.

I downloaded an ISO copy of Windows 7, and put it onto a bootable USB key, and changed the boot sequence in the BIOS so the USB key loaded first. Thankfully it did? however, when I click on ?Install Now?, a window pops up saying
?A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

What I'm trying to do:
Ultimately, I want to have a clean install (wipe everything) of Windows 10 on my computer.

What my computer state was before the trouble:
Windows 7 Home Premium and Linux dual boot. Everything worked great and dandy (except intermittent issues with DVD drive not reading disks). All my files were saved to external hard drive. Ready to be wiped and have just one instance of Windows 10 installed (No dual boot)

What I did to break it:
I deleted my Linux partition using the instructions found here.
I also had 3 other partitions, my primary one which has Windows 7 on it, and two others that care pre-installed on the machine when I purchased it brand new. I can't recall their labels but I think one had "data" in the name with some numbers, and the other was "restore". I might be totally wrong about that though.

I decided, "What the heck, I've never needed these before" and so I deleted both of those as well. I'm guessing this was a poor decision but what do I know. The computer ran fine while it was still on but when I rebooted (to see if my linux partition was gone) that's where it all went wrong.

What's wrong and how I've tried to fix it:
When I start it up, I get a black screen with the grub rescue terminal and this text: "error: no such partition grub rescue>". Don't know much about grub (anything at all actually) but after some googling I tried to create a Windows Repair Disk and run it. Burned the disk follo... Read more

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" and other errors

Solved it! And then went and cried in a corner because it was so simple.

Something I had failed to realize in the past was that of the 4 USB ports on my laptop, two of them are USB 3.0 ports. During my efforts, I had tried the thumb drives on (by sheer chance) both of the 3.0 ports rather than the 2.0 ones. My laptop (and most other modern computers I believe) require extra drivers to be downloaded before being able to use the 3.0 ports that aren't on the computer's firmware. That was the drivers it was complaining about not having.

So, for other troubled souls having the same issue in the future; verify that the port you are trying to load the USB on is a 2.0 port rather than a 3.0 port. The difference is pretty easy to spot when you're looking for it. USB 3.0 ports have an "SS" (for Super Speed) next to the US symbol, whereas USB 2.0 ports do not. See below image for a visual.

I have what appears to be a common problem with Win 7, as I've seen numerous users ask this question here & on other forums, but so far, none of the suggested fixes that I've found have worked for me.

I'm trying to install the full retail version of Win 7 Home Premium on a new SATA hard drive in a new 64-bit PC. I'm doing this because the drive that came with the PC had Win 7 Pro on it, but it was a trial version and I don't have a key or disc for it. However, I have a new copy of Win 7 Home Premium, and since I can't downgrade without hacking the registry (which didn't work either, btw), I decided to get a new HD & start over with Win 7 HP.

However, when I try to start the installation from the disc, after I click "Install Now", I get the error message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing". I'm stuck there.

The Win 7 disc allows you to remove the installation disc at that point & put whatever CD/DVD you want in the drive to try and find the drivers you need, so I tried the disc that came with the motherboard, which is a FoxComm. I'm able to get into the motherboard's installation disc & select "x64" under "driver" & also under "floppy". When I select those files, I get a quick green moving horizontal band, like it's downloaded the driver. If I select any other folder or drive, I get the error message "No device drivers were found" otherwise, so I believe I'm on the right track.

I got win7 rtm from MSDNAA and I'm having a very bizarre issue trying to install it. When it gets to the part when it shows the hard disks it says "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing" and prompts me to insert a disk or usb drive. I understand that this means it needs sata/raid drivers. But here's the weird part: I definitely shouldn't need to load drivers. Win 7 RC sees the disks just fine. Win XP and 2000 see them fine. It's just win7 rtm that doesn't.

I've tried on two different systems: one is an Geforce 6150se/Nforce 430 and one is an old i830/ich2 pentium 3 system. They have both run the win7 rc just fine. Why is this happening? Could my .iso be incomplete or corrupted? I would assume that the MSDN downloader does a checksum, but maybe not? My md5sum for the 32-bit rtm iso is 2316da980f95120702a7c3568a4bf9d9. Does anyone have one to compare? Or does anyone have any ideas why my rtm disc can't see any hard disks, even plain old IDE disks on old machines?

EDIT: ok, it only affects my 32-bit image. My 64-bit image works fine. Normally I wouldn't care since 64-bit is generally the way go to, but I was hoping to install this on an old XP rig which is 32-bit only. I guess I'll re-download the image and see what happens.
 

Answer:win7 rtm: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing"

I had this problem once before, and replacing my ancient IDE burner with a $25 SATA model did the trick. Oddly enough, booting the CD from an external USB burner worked, too.

My computer was running the other day when the surge protector it is connected to tripped. When I reset the surge protector and turned the computer on, it hung for about 15 minutes on the Vista loading screen before restarting.
First I checked to make sure that all of my hardware was still working. I opened the case and there were no bulging or leaky capacitors, so I thought that was a good sign. I then checked BIOS and all of my hardware was still recognized and functional (hard drives whir when accessed, DVD drive opens/closes and tries to read discs).
Next I tried booting into safe mode. The booting process always gets hung up on "crcdisk.sys" and I have to turn the computer off. I tried Googling for various fixes but most of them involved turning off SATA support, which is no good since my DVD drive and hard drives are all use the SATA interface.
After that I got out my Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit installation disc to try to create a partition on another HDD so I could at least recover my data before reformatting. None of my HDDs are recognized when I try to perform a repair operation (I've tried supplying it with about ten different HDD and chipset drivers via USB drive to no avail), and when I try to do a clean install I get the message "Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing".

Answer:V64 NIGHTMARE:"Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing", crcdisk.sys hangup...

Hi, do not do anything else to your system. It may already be too late (reinstall time). It appears the power outage impacted on one of your devices and now you have a corrupt crcdisk.sys file (actually it's a driver) now it controls filters and since your CD drive is effected most likely upper and lower filters.. problem is you introduced no third party programs to cause this (usual cause) so my first advice is to save your data slave your HDD to another computer and back up the data unless you already have a backup regime?

Ok this is new territory however I am confident. Boot with the Vista DVD go past the language setup and startup repair (I would try this just in case) now if it fails (i suspect it will) go on to "Repair your computer" select "command prompt" at the prompt type :-


Code:
devmgmt.msc press enter
Now in device manager go to the main menu and select "view" then "show hidden devices" scroll down to "Non plug and Play Drivers" expand and go to "crcdisk filter driver" right click and select "uninstall" Restart the computer windows will recreate a fresh copy and hopefully all will be well.. Remember this is an original fix (I just came up with it tested and it works)) so do BACK up first even a system restore from the advanced "repair your computer" option is worth a try.

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"

Could be a setting in your BIOS which is preventing the CD/DVD drive being detected properly. I'm not 100% sure the option might be, but it's to do with the hard-disk detection settings. Set it as legacy, or compatibility mode instead of enhanced. Not sure if it will work but its worth a shot. You could also try defaulting your BIOS settings but make a note of the configuration before you change any settings.

I'm hoping someone here has an answer.

This is not an upgraded Vista system.

It's not a specific driver related issue as it's the same response/effect be it graphics/chip set/usb/printer drivers.

Please dont suggest to flatten and re-install or run a repair install - It's not an option, I only have remote access to the unit
as it's currently in field use.

This is a machine specific issue - identical machine purchased at the same time and configured the same has no issue.


So the story.

My system crashed and i get the blue dead screen. Now i want to install windows 7 (legal) from usb. When i get to the 'where do you want to install windows?' it gives me the following message: No drives were found. Click Load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation.

I tried to go to my bios and change some things i read from other treads, but it didn't work out for me. I just don't know where in the bios i can change things, maybe my bios is different than others.

This is my laptop: MSI GX700 Intel Core 2 Duo T7500-processor @ 2,2 GHz

This is what my BIOS tells me:

MAIN
Market name: GX700
Model Name: MS-1719x
Primary IDE Master [hard disk]
Secondary IDE Master [ATAPI CDROM]
System Information

ADVANCED
intel(r) speedstep(tm) tech [enabled]
PCI Latency TImer [64]
Legacy USB Suport [enabled]
AHCI Mode [enabled]

BOOT

full screen logo display
bootup num lock
wat for f1 if error
hit del message dispaley

boot device priority
1st boot [CD/DVD:sm-slimtype]
2nd boot [SATA:PM-TOSHIBA MK]

I'm not that good with computers so it would be very helpfull if someone can lead me through this problem.

I also tried to find drivers but i just don't seem to find the wright one.

Many Thanks

Hello
I've got a Dell d630 with Win 7 Prof 32 bit.My problem is rebooting during a Windows Update.
 
 
History:
I clicked to install the update, and Windows did the configuring bit and shut down (as usual).
I rebooted, and Windows started the Apply Update bit.
 
After about 9,000 of 21,000, the computer went to sleep and all I could do was power off.
When I powered up, it came up with a Black Screen of Death:

We have written several programs in VB.2010. They all have a setup and deploy project to create the MSI file. There is a launch condition for a specific file.

This same technique is used in many other programs we have. All work in Windows 7, 8, etc. but not in Windows 10.

The file is there where it supposed to be.

Some programs work using the same exact file in Windows 10 and some do not. All work on Windows 7, 8.

The file is QBFC13.dll and is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intuit\QuickBooks
Search Target is [CommonFilesFolder]\Intuit\QuickBooks

MSI install message attached which comes from our launch error message setting.

What could it be?????

The pc restarts and i get into the "Windows is loading files" then it comes to the "Select Name,Country" I click next then it go's to the "Install Now" So i click it, It says "Starting up" Then it go's to this white box screen that displays this message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver 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" I then click "Ok" A another white box shows up that says "No device drivers were found. make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok" So that's the issue, I've been looking on to other forums, And they've said to put the USB stick into other USB2.0 ports.

"A Require CD/DVD Device Driver is missing . If you have a driver floppy disc, CD, DVD, or USB please insert it now. Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you may safely remove it now."

I trying to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 x64 SP1 onto my Dell XPS 13-321X Laptop with an SSD drive, and after i insert my CD media into my External CD drive connected via USB (since the system has no internal CD Drive), I get this after clicking the "Install Windows" button. I have researched the topic fairly and i have found no working solutions to this issue. Here are the methods I have tried already:

1. After researching the error, multiple sites recommended i download the Serial ATA drivers from Dell and browse towards it using the driver finder when the error pops up. No Success.
2. Switching BIOS settings to support CSM, disabling secure boot, boot priority, etc where applicable. No Success.
3. I attempted installing from a different source of media aside from a CD and a different External CD drive. No Success.
4. Updating BIOS. No Success.

Is this something that can be fixed or worked around?

Hello!

So I did some searching for a way to fix this problem but I believe that my problem is different than the Bluetooth Peripheral Device problem that most people have.

I am NOT trying to connect a cell phone to my laptop. I am not trying to connect anything I don't think (unless my bluetooth mouse counts?).

I have no idea what a Bluetooth Peripheral Device is. I took some screenshots of the messages I receive every time a wake my computer up or turn it on. (1st, smaller picture)

It tries to update a driver but always fails and gives me this. (2nd, larger picture)

The suggestion my laptop gives me is this

There may be an easy solution to this, but I feel really lost right now.

I'm trying to install windows 7 on my freshly built pc by using a usb device (no cd drive as of yet). I followed this guide to do this: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/.

Whenever I try and boot the device on my new computer I get the "cd/dvd device driver missing..." error and a box for me to select drivers. I have tried changing the boot order in the BIOS but to no avail and I wanted to change my sata ahci mode but I couldn't find this option (american microtrends v1.6 bios).

I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me solve this issue.
 

Answer:A required CD/DVD device driver is missing, usb installation

As CD/DVD drives are relatively inexpensive and an essential component of a PC these days, you could save a lot of head-scratching and hassle by installing one before trying to install Windows. Since it's a freshly built PC I'm surprised you didn't include one as part of the build.

Hi all,I have a HP Pavilion dv3-4031TX notebook and I want to do a clean install to upgrade to 64-bit OS.I made a bootable USB drive by Microsoft's USB/DVD Download tool with the official ISO from digitalriver's server.I successfully booted with my USB drive and got into the installation page and followed the prompts.Moments after pressing "Install Now", a message saying "A required CD/DVD device driver is missing." poped up and the installer did not proceed.  It was prompting me to load a driver.I've already tried methods found in other threads such as unplugging the USB drive and pluggin it into a different USB port, disabling Device Driver Signature Enforcement upon startup etc.  This problem still persists.There is a method of changing the SATA controller mode in BIOS to IDE or AHCI instead of RAID, but it's not found in BIOS. My BIOS version is F.27What else could I do?Thanks in advance.Some information regarding the source of my ISO image:http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.isoThis is the ISO image I use to make my bootable USB drive.  Google Chrome said the file size was 3.1GB while downloading.  It turned out to be 2.0GB.  I then used UltraISO to extract it and re-make a standard (uncompressed) ISO image.  Its size 'returned' to 3.1GB.  The new image was used to make the bootable USB drive.I also used the ei.cfg removal utility to make my ISO image universal.

most Consumer notebooks are AHCI mode only, there is no option to disable the SATA mode and make it work as IDE mode...since you are trying retail version of OS, you can download the SATA driver from hp.com, extract the files and copy them to USB. that can help you.if you want Factory installed Image, this link can help you get new media and install afresh...http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143 hope it helps, Good luck.

Hi all
I have a Toshiba Satellite M70-131 (Model No. PSM70E-01500RAR , Serial No. 16185917K)
I am using windows XP Professional.
I am unable install a driver fo the below mentioned PCI device which is listed as follows

"PCI BUS 6 -DEVICE 4 -FUNCTION 4"

In Device manager one question mark "?" coming with a description "PCI DEVICE"

I have already installed Modem, wireless Lan, display sound and IEEE1394

So please help me how to solve this. I need the answer for the following queries

1) This PCI card is using for which device?
2) How can i find out the exact driver software
3) Why the device name (eg: modem,) is not displaying
4) How to find out which device i am missing to install

your immediate support is highly appreciated

Answer:Satellite M70-131: PCI BUS 6 -DEVICE 4 -FUNCTION 4, driver required

Hello Peter

I really do not know what are you missing but fact is that on Toshiba download page you can find ?Installations Instructions? document. All you must do is to install all stuff listed there and in exact listed order. After doing this everything should work well.

I have M70-159 and using the same document I have installed WXP successfully.

BTW: I am not 100% sure but maybe you are missing driver for 5 in 1 card reader (cardbus driver).

Help please!
I have a Vista Home premium Acer Travelmate 5720G laptop and am trying to update it to W7 Pro 32 bit with a fresh install using a Microsoft Volume Licensing DVD.
The DVD is read, setup loads and I get as far as the language and keyborad selection screens. After completing the selections and pressing Next I get a Load Driver pop-up - "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now. ....."

The DVD drive in the laptop is a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N and I have been unable to locate a suitable driver on the web. I have tried copying parts of the System32 folder from the existing C-Drive to the D Drive and browsingto the CD Rom inf files in the FileRepository folder but without success.

Since the W7 Setup DVD is seen to read the setup files I cannot understand why a driver is suddenly needed after setup has started.

I am even more flummoxed because I have already updated an exactly similar laptop (only the serial number is different) with a different Windows 7 edition - also volume licensing but from a reseller rather than direct from Microsoft VLC (which is now available to our church after registration for the Microsoft Charity Software scheme).

The existing DVD driver is Microsoft 21/06/2006 V 6.0.6002.18005

I would be grateful for some advice please.

Answer:Can't install W7 - Required CD/DVD Device driver missing!

Problem solved!
When I downloaded the W7 ISO from VLSC I had not used the download manager. I decided to download the file again but, this time, with the download manager. This second try completed but the download manager told me that the file was corrupted. I tried again and this time it seemed OK. I then compared the checksums of both the original file and the latest. When I saw thst they differed I msde a new DVD which has installed perfectly.
The moral - ALWAYS USE THE MICROSOFT DOWNLOAD MANAGER!

Answer:Windows 7 64Bit - no driver found

If you have a Vista DVD, you can try booting from it until it gets to the Custom drives screen where you choose HD to install, then switch the DVD in drive to Win7.

Try pulling out the HD to install Win7 in another computer. This has worked for me a dozen times when I didn't want to waste time troubleshooting installation.

I got an SL500 2746-73U with anHDMI port, and am having difficulty figuring out the two device driversthat are missing from device manager. I'm beginning to wonderif the HDMI port requires its own device driver, just as the olderCOM and LPT ports require them. If an HDMI port device driverexists, I'm having a difficult time locating it. Last question: Doesthe DB-15 VGA port on the back require its own device driver, or isthis taken care of by the video card's device driver?Respectfully,Jeff in Golden, CO

Answer:separate device driver required for HDMI port??

well, it's right that there are two devices shown in the device manager. one is the "Intel High Definition Audio HDMI" and the other is the "Mobile Intel 4 series Express Chipset Family" which is your graphics card. Normally when you install the intel display driver from the Thinkpad SL series support page, it installs the HDMI port as well.  maybe you should try it again. first deinstall your graphics card driver, then restart and install it again.here is the download link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-69981 OR   the recently updated one from the intel support site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2991&lang=eng VGA port requires the graphics card driver.

Today I upgraded this box from onboard graphics to a Nvidia Geforce GT 430 and also installed the 260.99 graphics drivers from the main Nvidia site.

the motherboard is from the Foxconn G31MX series of boards (775 chipset).

The OS is Windows 7 Professional

After installing the new graphics card and drivers, my sound device was replaced with a non-functional Nvidia HD audio device, I have uninstalled this and installed the windows 7 drivers from foxconns support site.



Still no audio device !

It does have a sata hdd. I looked through the BIOS but couldn't find any places to change the sata settings to AHCI or raid.

I am trying to install from a usb key (using an ISO I created from an install dvd) but had the same problem with a downloaded iso. Also tried to install using the default language settings (As identified by David76 in another thread) but no luck.

I think it relates to the SATA HDD. I put the drivers for the netbook onto a seperate usb drive which it finds and lists in the box but none of the drivers do anything (hit next it thinks about things for a while then says no new drivers found).

I am really starting to get a bit ticked and regretting my move away from linux. If it wasn't for a few particular programs I use that don't work on linux i would have given up ages ago.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers,

J

PC shows no audio device in system tray, Device Manager shows two devices with yellow explanation marks - Code 52 error. Driver details shows default Microsoft drivers in use. Various driver installs attempted. Machine updated from Vista.

"Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

Hardware IDs

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10DE&DEV_0067&SUBSYS_00670000&REV_1000

one will be the mobo sound, the other the HDMI sound output (onboard graphics / HDMI capability)

Have tried the F8 boot option to ignore certificate signing, was no help.

Answer:No Audio device - Code 52 - can't find a driver that works 64bit

The default basic function Microsoft HD Audio Codec should only be used if nothing else is available. The PC vendor's audio driver is the preferred as non vendor drivers in many cases either do not work or do not work correctly.

The code 52, along with the digital signing, could also be malware on the PC according to what I see doing a google search.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Also check the box to uninstall drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts try to install the correct vendor sound driver.

Hello all, I am trying to install Windows 7 on the following desktop PC:

Intel Core i3 Processor i3-530
2048MB DDR3
500GB 3G Hard Drive
ATI Radeon HD 4350 Graphics
Supermulti Drive with LightScribe Technology

First, I will start by saying that when I turn on my PC, I receive this message on a black screen "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". When I press a key, nothing changes, i.e. still stuck on the same screen.

So, I decided to install Windows 7.

When I tried installing Windows 7, it would begin the installation process... I clicked "Install Now", then when given the options between "Upgrade" or 'Custom (Advanced)', I selected the Custom Advanced.

When asked 'Where you would like to install Windows?' (see screenshot #1.jpg), there was nothing shown in the box, i.e. there is no hard drive or partition for me to select where I can install Windows. So just to try, I clicked "Load Driver".

It prompted me to install a device driver. I clicked Browse and browsed through the existing drives. (see Screenshot #2.jpg)

Next, it showed me that 'No device drivers were found..." (see Screenshot #3.jpg)

I tried to google on how to find the drivers to install but to no avail.

Any ideas on how I should proceed from here? i.e. How to install the device drivers needed to continue the installation process etc.

Thanks!

Good Afternoon Everyone

I am having a hell of a time here working on a customers computer. Just got all the parts to do a new build for him, and have run into an issue when trying to install Win 7 Ultimate x64. I get the "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing."

Specs:
-MSI 880GMA-E35 Motherboard
-AMD Athlon II X4 Processor
-4GB Ram (2x2GB)
-500GB Seagate HDD (Brand New) (SATA)
-Sony Optiarc AD-7260S DVD-RW Drive (SATA)

I've reviewed other posts of this nature, and tried the following things:
1. Checked the SHA-1 HASH values with the official list, which checked out.
2. Attempted install via Bootable USB thumbdrive (With and without DVD Drive connected, to no avail)
3. Removed all but 2gb of RAM
4. Attempted to load any drivers from the Motherboard disc, to no avail, the program wouldn't run.
5. And of course, tried to install it normally using the DVD

Im at a loss here... any ideas?

Hi,

What is the source of the ISO file? Is it a retail version of Windows 7, or OEM?

Hi guys,
Wondering if any one can throw any more ideas my way on this one.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR11s which has been running a retail boxed version of Windows 7 Professional 64bit fine since its release.

My system was a mess, updates stopped working, got some viruses so decided to format the drive and start again.

So I have an empty 250GB HDD, BIOS has been set back to defaults (no option to switch between IDE and AHCI.
I pop the disk in and boot, all appears to be fine. It boots from the disk and I get the Install screen after several minutes (proving that the cd/dvd drive is working).

When I select "Install now" the disk starts up but then keeps spinning down and clicking.
It gets past the "set-up is starting", after about 15 minutes of doing nothing it tells me that the cd/dvd driver hasn't been found.

I have copied the Windows 7 optical drive driver from a working machine onto a usb stick and tried to point the set-up process to this when it asks for the driver, but its says there is no information in the file.

I have also copied the entire Windows 7 set-up cd to an external drive to see if it will pick it up but still nothing.

Is there anything else I could try? I don't have a spare usb stick large enough to install from.

Good morning,I have a Lenovo Y50-70 with a GTX 960m, I prefered removing originally installed Windows 8.1 and installing Windows 7 Pro (64bit) just because I used to work on this OS ! After that, I started installing drivers, everything went okay, I install a driver and restart my computer and it works fine ! The GPU was not recognized until I finally installed the GTX driver (From Nvidia website), and when restarted my computer I got a black screen just after "Windows Starting" and I only can restart the PC using directly the botton.I tried to wait but with no result ! So the only 2 solutions I had were to chose UMA instead of Switchable Graphics in the BIOS settings (Last version installed) so I won't be using the GTX anymore, or to restore the system to its last "good" start so before installing that driver.I tried many versions of the driver (From Windows Update, From Nvidia's website, from Lenovo's website..) and removed everyone of them before a clean install of another one (using DDU) but again with the same results (except for the driver from Lenovo's website that helped starting the system but caused it to crash few seconds after having the desktop.)I hope you will be able to help me finding a solution ! I will be very thankful !Specs are : Lenovo Y50-70CPU : i7-4720HQ @2.6GhzRAM : 16 GoStorage : 1 ToGraphics : Intel HD Graphics 4600 + Nvidia GTX 960mOS : Windows 7 (64 bit)Best regards,

My computer is not loading windows in normal mode.  It has a message that states device driver not found. MSCD001  It will load in safe mode.  How can I get it working properly.

Answer:device driver not found

There has been a failure to load the CDROM device driver. This may be either from a hardware fault in the CD drive or an incorrect CONFIG.SYS or AUTOEXEC.BAT line.In Win9x, the default CDROM driver is oakcdrom.sys (usually found in the c:\windows\command\ebd directory) but there are others as well. Make sure the one for your drive is loading right. Set the startup to Verify Each Step from the F8 startup menu and watch the response to each line. The line in config.sys and the line in autoexec.bat should have the same /d:mscd001 parameter, if both are present.In WinXP, you would need to go through Admin Tools steps or something...In the hardware, unplug and reconnect both ends of the flat cable between the mainboard and the CDROM drive and make sure the power connector is in right (and that it is not a 12-volt-line-only 'fan power connector). Check the BIOS settings and make sure the CDROM is recognised properly.
