I own a ASUS K55VM-SX086D laptop. I have been using Windows 7 and a Ubuntu with a dual boot. I updated my Ubuntu 12.10 to 13.04 and thats when evrything went downhill.
Firstly my Windows failed to boot, and after a lot of effort I managed to manually rebuild the bcd and got my windows to boot. But in the process somehow the partition with the Ubuntu was wiped, So installed Ubuntu 13.04 using a live USB. Now neither my Windows nor my Ubuntu wouldn't show up in the boot options. I tried to rescue it with the boot-repair tool in Ubuntu but nothing helped. Next I tried to reinstall windows using a live USB, but that didn't help as i got the following error. "A required cd/dvd device driver is missing." I gave up and deleted my Windows and Ubuntu partition, merged them into one and installed Ubuntu 13.04 on it. I tried to run the Windows 7 USB again but the same error keeps showing up.

I have verified that there is no problem in the live windows USB, by using it on another laptop. I have also tried the SATA:ACPI and the SATA:IDE configurations but nothing seems to work.

The CD/DVD device error is related to the USB 3.0 port used for the Windows USB drive (I guess).
Try using the USB 2.0 port and see if still the same.
For the dual boot, try googling for related tutorials (Ubuntu Windows 7 dual boot).

I tried the setup procedure with all of the USB ports (including 2.0) but nothing changed.
I have installed ubuntu and windows 7 quite a lot of times earlier but never came across this problem.

I tried it with a DVD instead of a live USB and it worked but the windows that was installed did not support any drivers. Not even USB, WLAN, or LAN. So I had to transfer the drivers I had in my portable hard-drive using a live Ubuntu USB. After that i could install all the drivers.
