    Hello. I have a problem with installing windows 8.1.
    A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a dvd, usbor hard disk driver......
    My Motherboard MSI p55-gd65. BIOS is up to date. I changed the ide to ahci options.
    I tried the flash drive and dvd.

    please wait until other members report about same problem and its solution. I only faced it once and as said, using other iso, all went fine

    replace * with t

    Code:
    Update:  Burning the ISO file to a regular DVD+R seemed to do the trick.  Haven't gone far enough to see if I still get the media driver issue installing from within the RP.  Now I will try to re-burn to the DVDRW and see what happens.

    I remember having a similar issue with one of the early betas of 8 vanilla. I had to install using the following trick:

    1. Install Windows 7.
    2. Insert the Win8 DVD when the temporary win7 is running.
    3. Run setup from inside the OS and do a clean install that way.

    Note: You can't change the partition layout that way, and you'll have to remove the windows.old (or whatever) directory manually after the install completes.

    It does complete, however, so it's a workaround you may try.

    today, ia hve the same issue on old dvd-rw disk, though windows 7 and other on this disk works.

    If I use this disk with windows 8.1 update as iso image, then ig goes without that media error, but i do not use iso, i use easyboot as multi boot with windows 98+ windows 8.1 update, and so I have this situation, as I understand, it want newer driver for dvd driver to be read out the further files, doesn`t it? My computer is 2008 dual core, bios of 2009, probably this error won`t be done on computer of earlier years like say 2012 and forward.:rolleyes:

    well, all depends on your computer model year date, every from 2009 must accept this install+ dvd recorder must be of 2008 at least, and not every company is accepted. I have lg yes, and for samsung of the same year, no! good luck.
