I need some help please.
I tried to install Windows 7 Professional on a brand new internal 2TB Seagate HD on my Acer 3450. The BIOS sees the drive and Windows starts installing, then stops and says that the CD/DVD driver is missing. I thought I could fool the computer and loaded cdrom.inf, hoping it would work, because, after all, it is already using the DVD. No such luck. The driver it needs is not on that flash drive says the computer.
I believe the DVD/CD-ROM drive is a combo unit, burning both CD and DVD. It was a long time ago that I installed it (maybe 2 years ago). The device manager says it is an “Atapi DVD A DH16ABSH SCSI CdRom Device”. I realize Atapi is a generic name, but I do not know how to find out what exactly it is or who made it, so I don’t even know what driver to ask for.
What more information would somebody require to be able to help me resolve this?
