    Hi all,

    I have just bought my first Mac and I'm loving it but I have to install Win 7 on it unfortunately.

    I have been following the instructions but when I try to install I get the error saying "A required CD/DVD device driver is missing. I f you have a driver floppy disk, CD/DVD or USN Drive, please insert it now.

    I assume it eans it does not have a device driver for the CD/DVD which contains the installation disk. What drive would i need and why isn't it standard on the Windows 7 installation cd?"

    I cant seem to locate the drivers needed for this.

    Can you help please?

    Thanks

    Les

    I'm assuming this is bootcamp? not VMWare/parallels

    I had this once and corrected it by changing the region settings at the 1st screen! This a generic error and can mean lots of things. Would using a usb to install be an option?

    Hi
    Yeah this is using bootcamp.

    I have it on DVD I burnt myself, what would be different if I used USB?

    Thanks
