    Yea at beginning of install MS asks you if you want to install drivers or updates select yes:)

    If that doesn't work keep asking but always like apollopimp suggested give those you are asking for help with something as much info as possible like machine, current OS, etc...

    soory im using vista home primium right now. and it doesnt ask me if i want to install drivers at the beginning. it starts off saying windows is loading files. then it tells me to sellect language, time and keyboard. so i do and click next.. then it shows windows 7 and it says install now. so i click next, then it says a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. if you have a 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 click ok and it says no device drivers were found. make sure that the installlation media contains the correct drivers. and then click ok so im stuck

    I never do..I always choose the drive and method...

    It is a very good resource and fairly safe if you pay attention..

    So basically formatting like before an OS would install isn't good enough sometimes. Is that true that some things are still left over. Partitions, etc...

    It depends dude. Some people say you should always format before reinstalling an OS just to clear the junk out and prevent potential issues. The one integrated into windows vista and windows 7 is ok but it is a quick format method as you probably know. It is best to do the full method even though it takes a long time because it runs check disk and other utilities also to the drive to fix potential bad sectors and the MBR and things like that. I have never used any disk formatting utilities other then Drive Scrubber by IOLO but I would bet that they all run those same essential tools and a basic M$ full format. Unfortunately they dropped the availability of it on the OS install disks when they made vista. The older ones(XP and 2000) both had the option just so you know.

    If you are getting cd/dvd device drivers during the install.
    Try going into the BIOS and switching around the SATA settings of the drives (ie. Native on or off, AHCI, Compatible ...)
