I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

best regards & good luck!

Normally the CD/DVD device drivers are part of the chipset drivers, since they include support for the IDE/ATA interface of the computer (to which the CD/DVD generally also connects). Same it it is a SATA controller.

In some cases additional drivers are required for non-standard interface controllers. You could try using a program to run a driver check and see if anything is missing.

Does the Windows Installation complete and have you tried skipping when it asks for them? Also make sure your install disc hasn't got a big thumb print or scratch on it.

I pressed f11 at startup but nothing happened


You haven't said why you pressed F11. Did you want to enter the setup? For HP computers, it is usually F10.
