I built my new gaming rig and now having problems installing OS. I am trying to install Windows 7 64-bit version.

The following is my configuration:

Processor: AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0 GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
Video Card: MSI GTX660 Ti PE
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128 GB
Power Supply: CORSAIR CX600M 600W
Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 922
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO

Now, I am getting this message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" Windows Installation Error

I am installing OS via external DVD burner/reader which is hooked up to USB 2.0.
I found this "solution" (http://ava.co.uk/support/faq/general/a-required-cddvd-d...) and I tried installing the motherboard drivers via flash drive, but it was unsuccessful. Also, I tried running the CD with drivers that came in the box with motherboard but I keep getting the message "No new devices could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct located on the driver installation media."

I have no clue what to do now and I need help.

You may have to try creating a bootable flash drive to install Windows. This would require that you have access to another computer. This link provides instructions on how to do so: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows7/a/install-window...
The only other option I can think of is to add an internal CD/DVD drive.

Thanks mate!

I bought an internal CD/DVD drive and it's working.
