    Cant install windows 7 on Xiaomi Mi book. Just before selecting the drive it says: a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing.

    I read solution is trying on USB 2 port but this laptop has USB 3 and USB C ports only.

    You need to integrate USB 3.0/3.1 drivers to install media, cause Win7 doesn't support or has USB 3.0 drivers natively.

    Download the needed usb3 drivers from the support site of the manufacturer and mount the boot.wim (index 2), integrate the drivers with dism command and unmount the image with /commit.

    Or when the mainboard/PC manufacturer has an integration tool (skylake motherboard manufacturers will have a tool), use that one.

    Example Commands:
    Code:
    
    Mount:
    dism.exe /Mount-WIM /WimFile:"x:\Boot.wim" /index:2 /MountDir:"y:\mount"
    
    Integrate drivers:
    dism.exe /image:"y:\mount" /Add-Driver /driver:"z:\USB3Drivers" /ForceUnsigned /recurse
    
    Unmount:
    dism.exe /Unmount-wim /mountdir:"y:\mount" /commit
