    Default A media driver your computer needs is missing

    I am installing on a machine (an Asus U36JC), intending to dual-boot Windows 7 and 8 RP.

    I get this error after selecting language and locale. It says "A media driver your computer needs is missing...."

    I have used Device Manager in Windows 7 to disable most unnecessary devices, and tried installing Windows 8 without any devices plugged in, except a SanDisk Cruzer flash drive which contains the Windows 8 installation files. The ISO file I downloaded is not corrupt - I have matched the SHA-1 checksum.

    Thanks.

    It seems you have done most of the work. Each time I search for a solution it always goes to a corruption. Since your download Sha-1 Hash seems correct, I suspect the Flash burn may be the problem. I would format the flash drive and try burning the ISO file again. Use the Win 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to re-burn the ISO file to Flash.
