" no disk drive was detected" during debian netinstall


hi,

i'm trying to install debain7 through USB drive on a vaio netbook (VPC-W121AX/T) with a 250GB sata hd (toshiba mk2555gsx. the netbook does not have a cdrom drive.

however i encountered error 'no disk drive was detected. if you know the name of the driver needed by you disk drive, you can select from the list while detect disks. if i chose 'continue with no disk drive', the systems hangs.

any help?

Switch to console Ctrl+Alt+F4 allows you to see installation errors Ctrl+Alt+F1 takes you back to the installer.
