Every time i try and install it says: "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"

My Motherboard is the msi z87-g41.

On the Pc you downloaded the Iso too and the windows tool. Run the tool with a four gig USB stick. When it done you should have a bootable install USB stick. On the new pc you have to make the USB stick the first boot devices.

Make sure in the bios efi cd rom or other devices are not the first boot device. On most mb hit f11 pull up a boot menu.

1- in error page click cancel, then close.
2- go back to the welcome screen.
3- change usb port
4- click on install
5- repeat step 1 to 4 till installation goes as usual.

commonly 1 try is enough.

Any suggestion of which SATA option to use in BIOS? The microsoft site suggests switching from AHCI to ATA. I've been running on RAID.
