im trying to install windows 7 x64 (buildlab: 7600.win7_rtm.090713-1255) on to my hp pavilion dv7-1280eg from a dvd.
so i boot from the install dvd and setup starts up. i get as far as choosing the installation language, and after that setup prompts me that drivers for the dvd drive are missing.
does anyone know a solution to this, be it the location of such drivers, be it anything else?
the dvd drive in question is TSSTCorp CDDVDW TS-L633L and i could not find drivers on the web anywhere.
in case you encounter mattball's post (http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Operating-systems-and-software/Windows-7-Install-Help-HP-Pavilion-2800/...) where i also stated my problem: i checked several times, ive got the right windows version.
thanks in advance,

Hi kilomasu, try here for the drivers (I cannot vouch they will work), or:
Go to Download.com, do a search for Driver Detective---it costs $40--but Downlaod.com will suggest at bottom more software/freeware/shareware as an alternative to Driver Detective.

It would be helpful if you gave a full model number so others can locate the right Drivers if they are Win7 otherwise we are shooting in the dark here?
