    Re: During install "required CD/DVD drive device driver missing"


    I've had similar issues when loading operating systems using nVidia's
    chipsets. You could try a) going to nVidia.com and downloading their
    latest driver for your chipset OR b) try slipstreaming the SATA/RAID
    driver into the installation media and burning a new disk with it
    included. nLite is my tool of choice for handling this. You need to
    download and install nLite (http://www.nliteos.com/) on a working
    computer with a CD/DVD burner. Then, gather your original installation
    media, the SATA/RAID driver for your particular system, and a blank
    CD/DVD. Step thru the wizard in nLite and when finished, you should
    have a fresh installation media WITH your SATA/RAID driver already
    installed. Just fire up the installation and Windows will do the rest.

    Hi,

    Have you checked with Dell regarding suitability of this model and Win7?
    Frequently, that error is due to a requirement for a specialized driver
    proprietary to that system. This can only be supplied by the manufacturer.
