Just started the install on my new computer, turns out I'm having a problem installing windows 7, the cd rom needs drivers is displayed on my screen...

I've been researching constantly and nothing has seemed to fix the problem, I've changing SATA options in the bios. Going from RAID to IDE to whatever else you can name, from what I read it should be on IDE.

Can't find any drivers for my motherboard that will fix the problem...

If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it!

CPU: i7 4770 K
GPU: msi gtx 780
MOBO: msi Z87-G45 Gaming motherboard
Intel SSD
Pionner BDR-208DBK Blu Ray burner/reader SATA

If i can provide anything else useful please let me know!

Thanks in advance!

Hi, For SSD, it's better to install Windows with SATA set to AHCI.
It might be a DVD drive/SATA cable issue.
Try making a bootable USB drive (use an application from Internet), copy the Windows files on it and install from the USB.
While installing Windows, load the SATA driver.
