Clean Copy Install of Windows 7: external dvd reader not recognized

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
so I have an official dvd copy of windows 7 x64 bit and I'm trying to install it on a new hdd. I have an LG GP08LU10 DVD Reader that's not being recognized during the installation. It's asking for drivers that cannot be supplied. I googled and even went to LG's website but there are none to get. I found a page on Microsoft that lists that my LG dvd reader is compatible with windows 7 & 8. I tried different USB ports (directly connected to mobo, not the case) and even disabled signature verification for whatever it was called when booting. I'm stuck using ubuntu 12.10 now but I want my windows back lol.

Did you make sure not to plug it into a USB 3.0 port? If you are using a USB 3.0 port, you will have to install those drivers. Easiest fix is to move it to a USB 2.0 port if you have one.

If you have to, and have a usb, you could put windows on a usb drive and try to install it with that. I only use usbs to install windows now a days.

Most recently I have installed windows through a usb drive on 2 desktops, 1 laptop, and 1 netbook, none with problems.

Just like you said, ericeod, the 3.0 port was the culprit. I'm installing windows 7 updates right now. Thanks again!

I never tried using the usb method for windows. I've done it for ubuntu though. Is there special software needed for windows too?

I think you could just use cmd for this. Although MS does have a tool for creating a usb if you don't know how to work through the cmd.
post #8 of 9
Windows has a tool yes, but some of the ISO files I have found wouldn't work on it, not sure why, so I used a different program. I just cant fit a optical drive in my computer because it's too small, so yeah tongue.gif

The issue is that Windows 7 and 8 do not have native USB 3.0 drivers. So you need to put the specific USB 3.0 drivers onto a USB drive and plug it into a USB 2.0 port and load the drivers during the initial install. But it is just as easy to just use a USB 2.0 port for the initial install and not use USB 3.0 until the OS is installed with all pertinent drivers.
