Error - Windows Installation Cannot Continue - Required Driver Not Found


"windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found" error when installing windows 7 ultimate over windows vista home premium 64-bit. No additional information is given, so i have no idea what to do. I am on the bizspark program and i am trying to upgrade from windows vista home premium 64-bit to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I downloaded the iso file from bizspark and ran the upgrade. After a while, i receive this error message:

"Windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found"

There is no additional information, so i have no idea what do to correct the situation. I have run the iso install from my hard disk, an external hard drive and also from a dvd. I get the same error every time.

Error - Microsoft.net Framework Version 2.o Is Required To Continue

Upgraded vista to windows 7 and upon every restart an error message appears stating "microsoft.net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue". Does anyone have a fix to this problem - step by step please; i have tried a lot of the recommendations i have seen in some of these postings and none have worked?

Local future shop is putting profits before customer satisfaction and is demanding $$$ to fix it; so i will do it myself - not sure why i should have to pay for something i have already paid for - an upgrade that installs and works properly?

Error - Microsoft .net Framework Version 2.0 Is Required To Continue

I keep getting the message listed above whenever i start my computer. It began after i upgraded to windows 7. When i try to install the service pack for the .net framework version 2. 0, it says that the software is not compatible with vista. But i installed the windows 7 upgrade, so it should not matter if it is compatible with vista, right? I don't understand what i am supposed to do; first, i get an error message saying i need .net framework version 2. 0, then i get a message saying that it is not compatible.

The message is "microsoft .net framework version 2. 0 is required to continue"  i have a 64 bit system and i have tried to load the .net 2. 0 but each time, the computer comes back with "this is already loaded as a part of the operating system.

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

The driver is located in c:windowssystem32driverscdrom.sys1gb ati hd4890 graphics accelerator hd 3300 gpu - hybrid crossfire xpcie gigabit lan controller featuring ai net 2 - asus m4a78 proi will also try to call microsoft support on 0844 800 2400 using access code 1233 when prompted. However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

Error - Access Denied - Driver Installation Stops

Hp all in one printer driver installation fails, on a clean installed windows 7 (32 bit), manual driver installation stops with "access denied" error message. I have a clean installed windows 7 32 bit. (Not upgraded from vista).

Firstly, hp all in one device photosmart c4280 has been installed automatically and worked fine. After several weeks, it's printing function disappaerad and an error message, saying the driver is missing appeared. Now i can manually scan from windows scan, but whatever i have done, i can not let windows 7 to install the appropriate driver for my printer.

I have used the latest driver software from hp; deleted the printer from devices and restarted and reinstalled. But every time it installs all hp devices but fails for hpphotosmart c4200 series. My user account has admin previleges, already tried with the local admin user, or run the hp driver software in admin mode by right clicking.

Lastly, whenever i try to install the printer driver at print management iu, it starts then halts with an error message "access denied". Printer works fine with another vista machine in my house. So no problem for the printer. I also tried to use the following article, which is actually for the machines which has been upgraded from vista, but it does not work as well.

I doubt, an update from windows update caused this as referenced in the following article for vista upgraded machines. Kb975891 hp multifunction printers and hp full feature software or hp basic driver solutions do not work as expected after a computer upgrades from windows vista to windows 7. Would you be so kind to help me? On the internet i have found hundreds of similar problems with windows 7 and hp printers but couldn't locate any solution yet.

Epson Stylus Nx515 Driver Installation Error

Epson stylus nx515 driver installation "the printer driver package cannot be installed" error. I have epson stylus nx515 all-in-one printer and i'm trying to install its driver on my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but i'm receiving "the printer driver package cannot be installed" error in the beginning of installation.

I'm using the latest driver, which was recommended by epson tech guys, who tried to troubleshoot, but said it is a system error. I know this printer worked fine before and i don't know what's changed since then to make it fail to install the drivers now. Can anyone suggest how to troubleshoot this error?

Required Device Driver Can't Be Installed Issue

I purchased the download version from my son's university to update his lenovo t61. I go through the entire process of download and creating the upgrade dvd. When trying to run it i first get the dvd device can't be written to. The school then told me to copy the files to my desktop (box1, box 2, and win7-p-retail_en-us-x86. When i run from desktop it completes 1) copying windows file, 2) gathering file settings, and 3) expanding windows files.

It then fails with a generic 'required device driver cannot be installed' and it ends the upgrade. I am trying upgrade vs custom. I've also downloaded and burned the dvd multiple times to make sure that wasn't the problem. Is something in vista stopping me?

Setup Hangs - Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7(ultimate) setup hangs: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. " First my hardware i'm trying to get installed:

Gigabyte ga-ma790fxt-ud5p
4 wd5000aaks sata 500gb drives configured as raid5 connected to the sb750

When i start the setup, everything is fine until i hit "install now". Afterwards i'm delighted with 5-10 min. Of "setup is starting", which is followed by "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. "

After that i provide the "ahcix64s.sys" which is the proper sb750 raid driver.

I tried the versions from: http://america. Giga-byte.com/filelist/driver/motherboard_driver_raid_amd_sb7xx_bootdisk_win7-64bit.exe

And the one from amd: https://a248. E. Akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2. Ati.com/drivers/whql_sb7xx_raid_vista_3. 1. 1540. 127.zip

Both with the same result: "no device could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media"

Just a side note: i'm installing from a usb flash drive, which has worked already, when i connect a single sata drive in ide mode to the gigabyte sata chip (jmb322); however this is not my desired config, i need to run the system from the raid.

When i attempt to install the same device as a network printer, the printer is found via the network, but the drivers can not be located. If i could locate where that driver was installed for the local installation, would it also work for the network installation?If so, where do i locate the drivers for the locally installed devices?

Sxuptp Driver File Not Found

I have updated my hp laptop from windows vista to windows 7 recently. Ever since the change, i keep getting the message "sxuptp driver file not found" when the computer starts up. I have no idea what that driver is attached to. After researching online, i saw that it is supposed to relate to belkin usb hubs, but i don't use any. I still tried to download the sxuptp driver 3. 1. 5. 0, but then it just says that i don't have the latest driver and it installs this whole program to control usb hubs that i don't want on my computer. Can anyone help?

Wacom Driver Not Found On Startup

I installed a wacom intuos 3 tablet on my sony vaio using the updated windows 7 drivers, which initially worked. But when i started my laptop the next time, it said that no driver was found. I re-installed the driver, which allowed it to work but only until i had to start my computer again. Recently i  discovered that sometimes could reconnect it through the tablet preference file utility from a backup of the preferences.

Today, i could not reconnect it despite re-installing the driver or restoring tablet preferences. Is this common? Can the why windows 7 is designed interfering with how it finds drivers on the hard drive? Any help is appreciated.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found

I've bought an usb bluetooth yesterday. I plugged it in usb and windows installed all drivers just fine. However, it downloaded some driver from windows update. But my problem is, when i'm trying to add my mobile phone it tries to install many drivers. Windows is able to install all drivers except one. It says bluetooth peripheral device - no driver found. I went to shop and i changed the usb bluetooth and got another one. Same thing with new one. It doesn't find a driver. The bluetooth is useless now, i cannot do anything with it. Also i've tried the bluetooth in my other pc but exact same thing. Currently i'm on windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but my other pc has windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

I've tried windows update myself and there was a driver which is 15 kb, i've installed it but no chance. Same thing happening. Driver date is 2008, too old and not for windows 7 i bet. What i have to do now? Please do not say change the bluetooth, because i'm not able to find any other brands. Here is only two brands. And one more thing, i've spent much time yesterday searching my problem in microsoft answers and web and i've tried all ways i've seen, but none of them worked. M i not able to run this device as vista? Something like that? There should be a way please give me some solutions. I really need it.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver Not Found

I upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 home premium. I was able to connect my blackberry storm just fine when i had vista. Now when i try to connect my phone via bluetooth i get a bluetooth peripheral device not found. I have tried everything. I have checked for updates on windows, bluetooth manufacture, and hp and i cannot find any update. I have went to the device manager and right clicked the peripheral driver and tried to update it over the internet and manually. I tried to troubleshoot and run it with a older version of windows, since it worked then, but when it asks me to select which program i would like to run on an older version of windows, i cannot find the drive. Does anyone have any ideas or a way to fix this?

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message.

That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

Simpletech Pininfarina External Hard Drive Driver Not Found

I have a 500 gb simpletech pininfarina external hard drive, the product number on the back says bom no: 96300-41001-013. I just bought a new laptop with windows 7 and the laptop doesn't detect the hard drive. It says the driver could not be installed and i should try downloading the driver from the manufacturers website. The manufacturers website does not have the driver on there and i have a lot of my sensitive data stored on this external hard drive. Is there any way i can find the driver elsewhere? If someone has the driver or knows of a public forum where this driver is downloadable then please respond to my post.
