When freshly installing Windows 8 pro OEM on a wiped laptop, I received an error message:
“A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB, or Hard Disk driver. . . .”
I found it was not even a driver issue, at least this time.
1. Boot to BIOS setup.
2. Locate System Configuration/SATA Operation
3. Change option to AHCI
4. Apply and exit.
Hope this works for you!
