I am in the process of doing a clean install of Windows7. My Presario CQ50 NR-103 HP laptop came with Vista Basic factory installed. However, while attempting to recover from a To-Do (Linux) backup,I now have no operating system.
When I attempt to run the Windows 7 install disc, I get a message telling me that I need missing drivers for my optical drive. I inserted the Vista repair disc and installed all the drivers it would allow me to from a backup (Double Driver) that I had in an external hard drive.
What is the best way to install any additional missing drivers if I have to get them from the internet? Maybe burn them on a disc or USB drive? How? HELP!
