So a quick google will show you that there is a littany of problems with windows 7 and LG DVD Writers.
Now... the problem was fixed at some point... but here's the thing,
If I try to install win7 from my "ultimate" cd... which I don't have a license key for... it works.
If I try to install from my Win7 Pro cd... (remember the week of the "student super deal" scam? awwwwwesome!)... the install stops on a screen asking for a missing dvd driver.
It (the error screen) offers to accept a solution from any port... (usb included).
I hacked around with this for fricken ages... (well, a couple of hours)...
The solution? I copy the win7 pro distro disk to a USB key... just "copy", no bootable stuff...
Install ... and when it fails on the DVD driver... I popped in the USB key and hit enter.
Presto.
