Can't Install W8 On Latpop - Missing Driver?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am trying to install a Windows 8 fresh installation to my SSd but I keep getting the following error on step 2

A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB or Hard Disk Driver. If you have a CD DVD or USB Flash Drive with the Driver on It Please insert it now.

Note: If the installation media for Windows is in the DVD driver or on a USB drive you can remove it for this step.

Any tips appreciated

-Mike

What is the laptop? Which SSD?
There are some drivers not available for Windows 8, I ran into this with HP, on an older laptop. Generally going to the manufacturers web site will tell you if it particular to your installation or fixable.

You might try an install with a HHD, just to see if it is SSD related.

Easy pizzy. Had this before.
When you got this error,go back to your main windows installing screen..unplug your USB and stick it in different slot.
After this is done - try installing again.
