    strange install error when installing 3rd party audio driver


    This is a audio driver i have used perfectly for my old creative sound card for many years on windows 7. But when upgraded to windows 10, the W10 install deleted the drivers. The card works because apparently it installed the original drivers. But they are horrible which is why i have been using these 3rd party ones for years. So i tried to install the 3rd party driver after installing W10 and they won't install. The odd part is the error message and i am hoping it gives enough of a clue that someone will have an idea why this is happening. When i try and install it i get an error saying it does not support amd64 processor architecture. It had me thinking does the creative card use an amd processor? But if so why does it install on w7 just fine? My PC has a intel CPU and my motherboard's so? Thanks.

    :)

    Error when installing Win7

    when Installing Windows 7 I get an error saying ""A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now. Note: If the windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step." What should I do to get Windows to install?

    1st delete the old driver(software or one by one)
    2nd Install new drivers from download
    3rd test new drivers

    Reboot after steps 1 & 2?

    What Drivers To Install

    Even though I purchased Windows 7 about two weeks ago, I have not installed it yet. I just want to make sure I install all of the correct things. So, I should have to install
    • latest Intel Chipset Driver
    • latest Intel Matrix Storage Manager (is this the only RAID thing I have to install?)
    • latest Soundmax ADI Audio Driver
    • latest Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet Driver
    • latest Marvell SATA driver
    • latest ATI CCC and Driver
    • Windows 7 should install the hyperthreading driver by itself right? Vista did.
