    Windows 8 Load Driver During Install Help!

    I'm new and need some help haha. I need to reinstall Windows 8 and it tells me that I need to load a driver before the install can begin. I have no idea how to do that or where to find the driver for my computer (HP ENVY m6 1125-dx). I know for a fact that its my hard disk driver... SATA driver? Anyways, thanks for the help in advance!!

    "I know for a fact..."

    What's the exact error message?

    Is it "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now."

    If so, see :

    "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" or "A media driver your computer needs is missing" error message when you try to install Windows by using a Windows installation DVD or ISO file
