Problems with Windows 7 Installation

I am currently trying to install windows onto a new computer of mine, and i am running into complications in the installation process. i am trying to install off of a bootable usb drive with the windows installation information on it, and that is running beautifully. the problem comes from my internal hard drives. i have been getting the error, which states that a driver for a cd/dvd drive is missing and the installation cannot continue untill the driver is found. i was dealing with this for the first few days, and so i decided to order anew hard drive. meanwhile, all of my hard drives are in working order, there is no corruption. i worked on it for a couple days, trying new ISOs, and thinking that it was a problem with the software, when in actuallity it wasnt. when i got my new hard drive in, i plugged it in solo, and there were no problems. i want to install windows in a raid format, so i have one other hard drive from the original set of hard drives that i want to include, but every time i plug it in, the installation rejects it. the only way that it works is with the single, new hard drive. i dont really know what sort of information i should provide, or what i should know, so if you would like me to provide anything, please just tell me and i would be happy to. thank you so much for your time and consideration!

  1. plug your target hard drive into SATA0 and then you will be able to install windows to it.
