Windows 7 clean install question...

When I try and install Windows 7 on a new Crucial SSD through a bootable USB stick I get an error message saying a cd/dvd driver is missing. I can't seem to get passed this step and continue with the installation.

I'm trying to install on a HP DV6. The BIOS seems to recognize the drive will run a diagnostic on it and it passes. How can i find this driver and continue on with installation?

I believe you have 4 USB ports; two 2.0 and two 3.0.

Connect your USB stick to the 2.0 ports and see if that works.
