    Hello, I’m trying to install windows on to my new SSD I have the usb that has windows on it, however I’m getting an error code that says “A media driver your computer needs is missing this could be a dvd usb or hard disk driver. If you have a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it please insert it now.

    I already have the USB inserted any ideas?

    I take it you're installing Windows 7? - If so I hope it's only temporary: -

    'Just to Notify Everybody who is Still Using Windows 7: -

    You have a few weeks or so left before you hit the deadline at which you should have upgraded to Windows 10 and/or stop using Windows 7; because Windows 7 will become obsolete and I guarantee you will get huge problems before 2020 is out.

    Really - the hackers and scammers are waiting for people who don't bother to upgrade and are still using Windows 7, and they'll have a field day with them: Emptying their bank accounts & stealing their identities.

    The answer to your problem is probably here: https://superuser.com/questions/279359/windows-7-fresh-install-missing-cd-dvd-media-drivers

    Use a black Usb 2.0 port for the install, Windows 7 probably doesn't have the drivers for Usb 3.X (blue or red)
