[Solved] freeDOS Install Windows 7 pro using pendrive but not working

    Question

  • Hi guys,

    My new laptop Lenovo G50-80 with free DOS and I wanted to install Windows 7 Pro 64bit by using USB pendrive. I can boot this pendrive in BIOS but when I go to Windows 7 installation > select language, time & currency & keyboard input method > Install now > then it show :

    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.


    And I can't found the pendrive drive if I browse it.

    Below is the method I tried:

    • I tried to boot in Lenovo Z50 & Acer Aspire V15 Nitro laptop without any problem (These two laptop default is Windows 10).
    • tried USB2.0 and USB3.0 port
    • tried this but still no luck: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0CbBePiX_A

    Anyone have any idea how to solve it? Thank you.

  • Hi,

    I quite understand your issue. It seems that your installation image did not have a compatible drive for your machine.   

    We would like to suggest you need to download the installation image from the official website in the link below.

    Wish you have a nice day.

    Best Regards

    Simon

  • Hi Simon,

    Sorry for late reply, at last I burn it into CD and it only worked, this is due to that laptop doesn't have USB port driver.

    Thanks for your answer and have a nice day.

    Case closed. :)
