Makes no sense. All operating systems during install have generic drivers designed to work the installing drive. If you are getting this message it has to be bogus and I suggest trying another dvd drive in its place.

    Hmmmm. Ok, you say so. I have installed win 7 ultimate on a mo bo not designed for 7 - went in but the on board audio will not work with 7.

    Well, I'm not making it up. When I put the disk in it loads for a while then says it can't find the driver for the DVD.

    It's what I get for downloading a cheap version of Windows 7 from a "fly-by-night" vendor. I could make them give me my money back, but the product key is valid, and I just used another disk. No harm, no foul.

SOURCE: NEED TO DOWNLOAD DRIVER

1) there are no drivers....your operating system has whats needed to operate it.
2) hooking it to a netbook will require you to have it put in an encloser that has a power source, as you can not run the drive with out power supply.
3) you would be better off buying an external DVD Burner, One designed for your purpose. That unit you have will not operate on its own, and you can not hook it directly to your netbook

Is it possible to install Win7 update on replacement HD - a HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook PC


It should be possible. You should search a free toll number for your country to ask Microsoft about this situation. Also you can take out your old hdd and use Ghost to mirror it on the new hdd :) - you just clone the old hdd

Hi, The DVD/CD Rom Icon has dissapeared on My Computer. When I go to control panel - device manager and click on the dvd/cd rom drive icon I get the following message in the genaral...


You will need to re-install the driver. Right click the device in device manager and select properties. Navigate to the driver section and uninstall all existing drivers. (It may *not* give you the option to do that, depending on how corrupted the driver is, but it should.)
Reboot the PC.
Upon reboot, Windows should find the new device and install generic drivers. It will probably ask you to reboot a second time.

When I try to install Windows 7 onto a new primary HDD, the procedure asks me to first load some drivers for the motherboard. But Windows doesn't tell me how to do it. What do I do? I've never seen this...


You need to have the disc for the drivers. When the system askes you to load them, it will have a drivers button to do this.

There is an easier way to do this if you have another computer available. Look at this guide
Using that method you can take all your drivers for your motherboard, slip them into the windows 7 dvd and then make a new copy to install from. This will circumvent the need for it to ask for the drivers.

Hi I posted a problem last night about my asus eee pc 1005ha... kept rebooting at windows load screen. so I brought a dvd burner to run windows disk & do repar. it would go through everything fine...


Hi.

Solving your problem is just as easy as 2 hour work. not more..

By the time you were having the restarting problems.. all you had to do was to boot from usb cd-rom using Hirenes boot cd 10.

It starts a small intergrated windows. then you would have to go to a menu to stop some un-named startup bugs that cause the restart when Explorer.exe is being executed by windows.

so now, if you have your backups safe, get instruction on the internet on how to make a bootable usb windows vista or 7 Setup. windows seven comes with many drivers for new laptops.

Boot your computer from USB flash disk, run the windows 7 setup and enjoy..

hope this information helps you because it helped me with Acer One netbook..

good luck

I have recently purchased a new HDD (I now have 2 Hitachi P7K500 HDDs) and built it into my system. I have first formatted the HDD I already had, then configured my BIOS for use of RAID 0. My mobo (MSI...


1. If you are just setting up your computer to have an a regular HDD and Backup HDD, i would think you should be able to set that up by booting onto your computer regularly, go to start, then into My Computer and right clicking on the HDD you want to set as Raid 1.

But if just want that other HDD for Space on your computer, all you had to do was plug it in and there you go... extra space.

Now if your installing windows 7 on the other drive i would find that pointless because you already have it on your first drive unless your putting 2 operating systems onto your computer.

Hope this helps.

DVD+/-RW/CD-RW NEC AD-7203S drivers No problem - just simple me need drivers for this device? for installation on other PC, new system not understend this device and ask driver


Windows 2000 & XP & Vista & 7 have "built-in" drivers for *ALL* CD/DVD drives. So, no specific "driver" should be necessary.

What errror-message(s) do you get?

Does Windows ask to connect to the Internet to search for drivers?
Did you permit it to connect?
