Hello, Ive got quite the problem.
I just started building a new computer and Im having an issue intalling Windows 7 Enterprise.
I've got the Asus Crossfire V Formula motherboard, FX 8150, GTX 570, 16 GB Kingston HyperX memory, and Corsair 80 GB SSD. When I first try to install Windows, im getting an error that says "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have the driver floppy disk, CD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now." I have tried clearing the CMOS, checking the BIOS for AHCI configuration, and tried loading the latest ITE ATA driver on a disk to force it. Any ideas anyone?

Plug your CD/DVD drive into a different SATA port. It might be on a controller that Windows has no native driver for. Try the SATA port 2nd on your mobo (next to your HD, and make sure they aren't the RAID ports or whatnot is on the Crossfire).
