I am trying to install Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on a new build. I have an external DVD drive that I intended to use to install Windows, but that is only getting me to the Windows "Install Now" screen.
When I click to install, a prompt pops up saying "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. Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."
I am using a Gigabyte GA-Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard that supports Win7 64-bit. The manual from their website says to download the "Windows USB Installation Tool" from GIGABYTE's website and install it before installing Windows 7. I have no idea how to do this on a new build.
I have tried the Windows Download Tool to put the .iso file on my USB, but it is not working.
I would be grateful for any assistance.
