Can I get this installed with what I have or do I need to purchase a new license of Windows 10 Pro

The History: This Dell Vostro 3750 has been a great machine. It is older but I have had little problems with it. I got it through a University purchase of a highly respected University and it had Windows 7 Pro installed on it. Later in the last two years I updated it to Windows 10. Recently the HD failed. A Seagate 7200 500gb drive. So I went out and bought a new SSD trying to get some more life out of the laptop. So...

I am trying to install an Action Pack License of Windows 7 Pro to a new SanDisk Ultra II SSD on a Dell Vostro 3750 but the install stops on this error "A required CD\DVD drive Device driver is missing". I went to the Intel site and the Dell site looking for a Chipset driver to install to correct the issue. I have attached a screenshot with what "I THINK is the driver I need?"

I do not know how to install the files I need when the Win 7 Pro is a brand new install in a brand new blank SSD mentioned above. Does that mean I need to install the displayed files by using a CMD command line DOS syntax?

I cannot seem to find the individual driver files I need to apply to the install. Should I give that pursuit up and just buy an license of Win10Pro or keep at it.? If anyone can clarify I would be grateful. Thank you.

What I think are the drivers?

Download Windows 10 media creation tool on other computer
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
And install Windows 10 on new SSD from this media (you can create DVD or USB)
Since Windows 10 was registered for Your computer once I think it will activate authomaticaly

Go to BIOS setup  .  (Turn on or restart your laptop,  When the Dell logo appears, With keyboard Tap F2 until the Entering BIOS setup message appears)

 Make sure RAID is Disabled.

 Find SATA Operation  and change it to AHCI  and make sure your SSD is the first boot device in Boot sequence order. save and exit BIOS setup and try to install Windows.

if above suggestion didn't work then:

I updated it to Windows 10. Recently the HD failed.   <-- Windows 10 keeps the License in the Microsoft Licensing Server. Once you have Windows 10 running, you can change the hard drive and install Windows again and it will be licensed. Use the Media link as suggested above by Tom.

I am currently putting your expertise to work at the moment. You said Windows 10 I had Windows 10 Pro. The Media Creation Tool did not have an option for selecting Professional. Is that something I will need to repurchase or does anyone know if the Microsoft Licensing Server will catch that and help me update. Otherwise it sounds like I will get Windows 10 Home witch is better than nothing at this point. However Running SQL Server Oracle SAP etc probably will not be kosher for that OS. Your thoughts and thank you for getting me this far. It is appreciated.

Media Creation will install the same version (Home, or Pro, or 32-bit or 64-bit). It will install what is there, so no option is needed.

You do not need to repurchase the same item.

it sounds like I will get Windows 10 Home witch is better than nothing at this point.  <-- No, not if you had Pro. I have Pro and use the Creation Link and it gives me Pro automatically.

Wow that was awesome. I am so glad I did not fork over another $200 and asked you guys before  I opened the wallet again for Microsoft. Something I already owned but did not know how to access in the event of a HD failure. I am going to spend the weekend backing up and assuring the safety of my files. Going to set up all the synchronizations with Google, Sync, Dropbox and any other I can so that I never loose another thing,.

I really appreciate all your support. If I could afford it I would give you all something. In the near future when my certifications are complete and the clients are coming in consistently I plan to use your professional services for the fees you request. Thanks again. Posting another question for the next step from the laptop you helped fix.
