how to install drivers during windows 7 installation

I made a windows 7 home premium installation dvd by burning an .iso file that i downloaded on a dvd and i am facing troubles installing the drivers. I extracted the backed up drivers on an external hard drive and during the installation of windows 7 they are asking me about the drivers before the installation of windows.
I have all the drivers in the external hard drive but i tried many times to install them using the browse button and locating the folder containing each driver and installing it alone but its not working. So is there a better and more efficient way to install the drivers?
Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

During the clean installation of Windows 7, users are usually asked to install a few drivers for the internal hard disk. These drivers should be written onto a DVD disk/ USB drive and installed when prompted.

 

The issue here, I believe, is that you are trying to install the wrong drivers. The installation requires the internal hard disk drivers. This driver will depend on the configuration of the internal hard disk (RAID, SCSI, etc.).

 

Another possibility could be that some other devices are not properly recognized by the Windows 7 installation. You may try installing Windows 7 by burning the ISO to a bootable USB drive and booting the computer up from this USB drive. Here is how you may do it:

If, during this installation, you get an error saying that a required CD/DVD or USB driver is missing from the computer, you could refer to the post marked as Answered in this thread.
