The installation asks for drivers if you have fairly new hardware for witch the drivers are not included on the installation disc. Normally you should have the drivers, because they came on a CD with the PC. If you don't have the CD, you can go to the support site of the manufacturer and download the drivers there. Actually the only one you will need in the first place is the LAN driver to get on the internet after your clean install. You can download the other drivers then from there.

Just let Windows install the default drivers and then install the additional drivers afterward. That is the standard practice.

Guys Guys lets back up a few posts and look at his initial problem, i believe what hes asking is during the very initial stages of install when its looking for disks. I can't be sure but i have a feeling its during this stage that hes having his problem?
