    a required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing


    He guys,


    im trying to install the new develp build of win8 (x86) on my asus eeepc 1005pe. This is a netbook which doesnt even have a cd/dvd drive.


    So anyway, I extracted the iso on a bootable usb flash drive. I boot, and when I click install it just hangs for about 10 minutes and then it gives me this error:





    I tried setting the bios from AHCI to IDE. This does not help, I even get a bluescreen of death when I boot up in the current win7 sp1 install. But anyway on google I read a lot about this problem and one of the solutions is to put it on AHCI.. but not for me as it was already on AHCI. Anyway IDE is not workin either.


    So im kinda lost.. just recently I installed win7sp1 on this netbook without a problem. I checked the sha1 hashes of the win8 ISO and they are confirmed, so that is not the problem either.




    Can anyone help me with this problem?

    Welcome to EightForums. Did you try this method for making your bootable flash drive.

    You say you have 7 installed you could try the upgrade method if you do not need your 7 install for everyday use. Good luck to you http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...r-preview.html .:ninja:

    Did you Disable Boot Booster in BIOS setup.

    im not really planning to install a develepors build for everyday use, so upgrading is not an option.

    i know how to make a bootable usb, as you have seen my screenshot, this is not the problem..


    I dont have boot booster option in my bios..

    This is what I have tried allready:
    - checked sha1 hash of iso
    - configured bios tn AHCI
    - tried fat32 and ntfs usb format
    - This

    I had the same issue. Downloaded a new .iso and installed without a hitch. I would recommend downloading a new .iso

    I am getting the same error with the 32bit version. I will download again and burn it again see if that helps. It could be that the data got corrupted somehow. Will let you know as soon as I do.

    ok, but with me its not the ISO. so downloading it again is a waste of time.. you can check the sha1 hash.. if that is correct then there must be something else wrong.. the q is, what?

    Could be something ese is wrong, but I downloaded another copy of the iso last night, burnt it and I was able to install it with no problems at all.

    I'm just saying give it a try, your spending way more time in trying to fix it. If the new iso does the same thing, then we can start looking at other options.

    Seems to be random, i booted from a dvd and got the error but not on booting from a flash drive made from the same iso.
