    I'm Installing Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit With a USB... I need help it loads and everything but when i get to the page after it says set up is starting it says A Required CD/DVD drive deice driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, Or USB Flash drive please insert now. It Gives me the options Browse OK, Or cancel. I tried all Non work then IF i press okay or browse and click on my USB it says... No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers and then click OK.

    I tried everything... I really need help from a Professional! Or anyone who can help! Please help .. Please!

    I tried with TWO different USB drives.. On was a 8Gb Scandisk and other is a 2Gb Core Micro. All other Websites i googled for help don't really explain a solution to this problem but i was told this website is fantastic! This is a LG Net Book.. And my Windows XP version was just all messed up so i really need help on this! I have no clue honestly tried everything I could think of and I'm Sure someone could come up with the solution Really fast!


    Thanks , CPUMadness :):):):):D

    Does this Netbook even have an optical drive?

    Do Windows 7 (or Vista) drivers exist for the Netbook? Did you run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor on it?

    Here's the method I used to install Vista and Win 7.

    http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/

    It seems to have an extra step that your method didn't. Also, keep in mind that it has to be done on either a Vista or Win 7 machine, an XP machine doesn't work. The "diskpart" utility in XP isn't the same as in Vista or Win7 and won't work. I even tried using the Vista "diskpart" file on an XP machine and I still couldn't get it to work.

    Hope that helps.

    Here's a tool that might work:

    When I installed Win 7 from USB, I must have tried 10 or 12 different times before I got it to work. So hang in there.
