... - I still get this message - a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. Windows boots up from the drive just fine, and gives the menu options, but after choosing to install, I get this message. Why would it need a driver for a drive it just booted up from? And what the $#^^Y can I do about it???
I had this exact same issue
in December. It turned out to be an incomplete/corrupted d/l of the install disk.
If it is failing across that many devices, it is likely the disk, not the hardware.
