DVD RW Optical Drive that will install windows 7 Tags: DVD Writers Windows 7 Optical Media DVD RW Storage Last response: June 7, 2010 9:42 PM in Storage Share cosmiconion June 6, 2010 4:17:30 PM Hi all, I'm building a new pc and while searching for an optical drive I've noticed that a few seem to have issues reading windows 7 disks. Obviously this would be an issue if I don't have an existing OS (as I won't be able to download a firmware update for it) Does anyone know of a decent DVD rw for around £20 that will read the Windows 7 disk and allow me to install it without having to d/l any additional software. This is my first major build and id like to get it right first time! Cheers More about : dvd optical drive install windows Forte125 June 7, 2010 6:09:09 AM Look for an LG drive.
