Default Windows 7 Install Error

I have downloaded and burnt the ISO. I used DVD and the internal DVD drive to install it. I also tried external DVD drive connectet with the laptop via USB. In both cases soon after starting W7 installation I got message: '...
A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD or USB flash drive, please insert it now...'; I have a DVD (bought it from ebay) 'Ultimate Drivers Pack for Windows XP/Vista/Win7, but I don't know where to find the required drivers. Can you provide some help with this, please?

The error can occur for a few reasons:

1. The CD/DVD media is not good. Good quality media should be used.

2. The disc has been written at a fast speed. Burn the disc at a slow speed.

3. If there is a RAID employed on the computer, and the proper RAID drivers are not installed, then this error can occur too. Download the RAID drivers for the motherboard, or the laptop, from its manufacturer's site, for the appropriate laptop model... store them on a flash drive, and install drivers.
