“A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing” when you try to install Windows 7 from a USB Stick

Just ran into a funny problem setting up Windows 7 fro a USB Stick and by concidence I ran into the following:

Clicked Cancel and went back to the Welcome Screen. Plugged the USB Stick into another USB slot. Waited 30 seconds to make sure it was recognized and clicked “Install” again.. BOOHYA!

Maybe this helps someone :)

Thanks microtom! I’ve been searching for a solution for ages and your method is the ONLY one that works for me! I’ve been on the verge of throwing this new PC im building into a brick wall for all the grief it has given me. :P
