    Default Error Message: A media driver your computer needs is missing

    Hi all,

    Can you help me? When I try to install Windows 8, I get this error message:

    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 frive with the driver on it, please insert it now.

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

    Any ideas?

    First, you are NOT installing Win 8, you are attempting to install Win 8 RP (beta OS). This is not yet complete. Do you still have your original OS installed? If not that was a mistake. Did you make an Image of your original setup? If not, mistake 2.

    I would start over. Download the ISO file again, burn it to a DVD using a slow burn, and boot to the DVD and reinstall the entire OS.

    Just be advised that since this is still a beta OS, it is not complete and thus does have problems.

    Have you tried to re-download, re-burn and re-install it?

    If yes and still have the issue, try these steps.
