Default Missing Drivers during install error? - 07-23-2010, 02:23 PM

I have been trying to install Windows 7 Home Edition x86 several times, and always encounter the same problem.

I downloaded Windows 7 and then copied all files to a recently reformatted 8Gb USB stick. I know the ISO is not corrupted as I have used it before. I have also tried my ISO for Windows 7 Ultimate, again no luck.

Then I changed the BIOS settings on my computer to boot from the USB drive, and it boots and then starts. When i press on the Install button however, it says its starting the install but then quickly and the following message appears;

"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

The message also allows me to browse for said missing drivers, but i cant find any drivers anywhere.

I would appreciate any help, thanks in advance.
