    Win8 install asking for driver


    Hello All,
    I tried to install Windows 8 Developer preview this evening,
    and it gave me a message that "A required CD/DVD is missing".
    I have not had any problem with my computer and at no time
    have I been asked for any drivers. I then put in the disk that
    has all the drivers for my computer, and it could find the driver.
    Could someone give me any advise on this problem.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Found out the problem.
    It was a bad download some files were bad.
    Downloaded again and installed with no further problem.
