I installed fresh copies of windows thrice it all the time the problem's the same! any solution or suggestion out there?
    Hi Astroboy,

    As far as I know there is not a solution to this problem. I am also encountering this issue and have not found a fix yet.

    Hmm, I actually have an Asus drive that I will try and see if it sees that drive.

    That's not correct. Optical drives/CDROMs are hardware like most and they do require drivers generic or not. Not every BIOS firmware is the same for all makes and models. Some people uses external Keyboards and mice plug and play i think not, they requrie drivers and these are no different to your ROMS in that they are plugged in to your machine.

    If your theory is correct the OP would not have a problem, clearly it isn't.

    That is good that you have gotten this solved. This is still and issue with many people, me included, and hopefully the new beta release due sometime in February will have this solved once and for all.

    I hope that Microsoft has considered this a serious issue and have addressed this issue for the new beta release.

    Dual boot: Windows 7 & 8


    I just downloaded Windows 8 32 bit Consumer Preview built 8250. Problem just from the beginning, when boot from the DVD it was just fine, but before windows 8 installation, it ask the DVD driver which I don't have any idea where it was. Try inserted DVD containing driver of my DVD drive, it couldn't detect. So the installation was aborted.. weird..

    Edit: DVD drive is DVDRAM LG 24GHNS90

    Hmm, it would appear that this issue has not been completely fixed then. I have yet to have that type of issue when installing 8.
