I want to install a fresh copy (clean install) of windows, I burn dvd and usb, these are bootable, restart, hitting esc, select dvd or usb boot, setup start, but in next step of setup tell me that "Required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing". Setup cant find partition where I want to install windows 7...

Here you go:

ASUS G75VW Clean Install Guide

It's the first search result that appears, has everything from burning the Windows 7 DVD (legally) to getting and installing the latest drivers

Does what work? Might be a good idea to start a new thread if you have specific questions ...

Hm, on DVD it should work if it's SP1. Try to disable UEFI Boot.

Can you test the system using a Mint Matte live session?

I initially received a "Required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" error when I attempted a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 to my G74SX. I downloaded the .ISO file again, burned a new DVD at the slowest speed, and the install was successful.

UEFI boot is in BIOS.

Mint Matte is a Linux OS.

Using a very slow speed to burn it is a good idea.
