Hello Everyone,

 

I'm pretty new with the Windows Embedded & installing windows from USB.

 

I'm trying to install Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1 on Panasonic CF-53 laptop.

I've plugged my USB and made a bootable USB using rufus (https://rufus.akeo.ie/) and this ISO:

en_windows_embedded_standard_7_sp1_runtime_x64_dvd_651894.iso

 

When I've booted from the usb > Clicked "Build an Image", I get the following error message:

"A required CD\DVD drive device driver is missing".

 

So I've downloaded the Win PE x64 & x86 drivers from Panasonic's website:

And then used Microsoft's KB to add additional drivers to the boot.wim file:0

https://technet.micr...ror=-2147217396

 

Then I've replaced the boot.wim file (under the sources folder) in the bootable USB I've created with Rufus.

I've tried this procedure with x86 and x64 but I still get the "Load driver" message box.

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

I'll be very thankful for your assistance, thank you!

David.

The:

 

When I've booted from the usb > Clicked "Build an Image", I get the following error message:

"A required CD\DVD drive device driver is missing".

 

is a known issue, see this thread:

http://reboot.pro/to...required-cddvd/

 

The message is deceiving and usually it has nothing to do with the specific Panasonic drivers (though integrating them is a good thing :) as it is possible that without them other issues would have come out).

It is more connected to the "install.wim" than to the "boot.wim".

 

Normally (with a modern, updated tool like Rufus is :thumbsup:) this should not happen anymore, but it is possible that somehow 7 embedded has some differences as opposed to "normal" 7.

 

Try an alternative approach, like the ones suggested in the thread or an alternative tool like RMPREPUSB/Easy2boot, if I recall correctly Rufus and Easy2boot use different methods to avoid that error:

Since you only want to install a Windows 7 (though embedded) before Easy2boot (which is essentially a multi-multi-multi boot solution), try using WinsetupFromUSB first:

Boot.wim may have two image index. See if there is an index 2 and put the drivers into there.

@David.sod
Do you use a USB 3.0 port?
Try a USB 2.0 port too.

Good catch :), seemingly the thingy has 2x USB 2.0 ports and 2x USB 3.0 ports:

Hi Guys,

 

I've tried the Winsetupfromusb and the USB 2.0 ports.

Both of them are the same, still unable to load the installation.

 

:(

I can't believe it, burning the iso to DVD resolved the problem.

Well, it depends on what the problem was.

If it was "install 7 Embedded" yes, if it was "install 7 embedded from USB stick", no.

 

Anyway the only important thing is that you are happy with the result :).
