I would update my ThinkPad X60s. Actually, Windows XP Pro SP3 is installed, but I wanna run Windows Seven.
When I'm trying to install Seven, early in the installation a dialog box appears stating that a CD/DVD rom driver is missing and that i have to install it before i can do anything else. It gives me the option to install the driver by browsing the drives on my computer.
Which driver do I need exactly ?
Thanks for any help.

Hi vuraaal and welcome to the forum!
I've seen this error before, one of the many reasons it happens is when you've a bad media or burn of Win 7 DVD.

At first, I've installed Seven with a USB disk : this error appeared.
Now, I've burnt Seven on a DVD : this error appeared. too...
I've downloaded the lastest driver ATA ATAPI Controller , but it doesn't work. Moreover, I must uncheck the checkbox saying "show only drivers supported by Seven" to show the drivers in the list after the ATA ATAPI Controller is selected.

Yes, I've changed the SATA option. Compatibility or AHCI : they don't work...
An error occurs (blue screen when Windows XP is loading) when AHCI is chosen.

When I launch the DVD, errors appears :
E:/Sources\SPWIZENG.DLL is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.
The above error is then followed by the following error.
"The file autorun.dll could not be loaded or is corrupt. Setup cannot continue. Error code is [0xc1]"
