I have bit of a trouble with installing Windows 7 on my new ASUS X501A freedos laptop. Since the laptop has no disk drive I am installing Windows via USB device. Everything goes smooth with the installation until it reaches the second step, asking for a cd/dvd/flash driver, not recognizing the USB device that is plugged in. I would be very thankful for any sort of advice concerning this issue.
