Getting the dreaded "Required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" during Windows 7 install, but no drivers are working!
Posted on 2013-01-02
I'm trying to install Windows 7 x64 on a Shuttle XH61V barebones system, when I boot into the Windows install after cliking "install now" I get the "Required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing". No problem, I've had this before! There is no optical drive installed on the system, so I'll just go get the RAID or Chipset drivers from the Shuttle website and load them at install!
I've tried every available H61 driver I can find and none of them will take.
I've gone into the BIOS and changed all the SATA options too. Tried ACHI and IDE modes with the same result.
Called Shuttle support and they are worthless.
Any ideas before I throw these against a wall?
