HOW DO I force Windows to install the manufacturer's driver for a blueray drive?

Make sure you run the installer as an administrator and disable anti-virus software as it is likely to need to make changes to your hard drive to allow the BR drive to be recognised as a boot drive.

Navigate to the installer program but right click on it first and select "Run as Administrator", even if you already have administrator rights. Windows is weird like that.

Good Luck

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem
"you only need to do the following"
if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer

Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope this helps

if this fails to fix the problem

It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it

No boot sector on hard disk - No bootable devices - strike F1 to

AFAIK all XP disks were bootable so maybe check your bios options.
If they are correct and it still does not boot them goto and download the floppy setup disks for XP. You could then set your laptop to boot from floppy and install xp from there.

Very Critical

Have you tried to delete that number? so your problem is all about that number? maybe capslock is on, or maybe your keyboard is damage. Try to buy a new outboard kyboard which is a USB type. Then reinstall your WINDOWS.
