    I've been having a super difficult time trying to install Windows on my new Mini. Since it doesn't have an optical drive, I'm using the official digital download of W7 from Digital River (I have an activation key purchased).

    As soon as the Mini goes through the initial setup for Windows and hit "Install Now", I get an error saying the're a CD/DVD driver missing so setup cannot continue.

    Tried everything... Anybody encounter this problem and found a solution?

    How are you installing Windows? Are you putting it on a memory stick and booting from it?

    Solved it. Turns out I had to plug the USB key directly into the Mini and not on the wired keyboard I have.
