          If you still have the windows 7 installed on the laptop, can you go to the device manager?


          Disk Drive >>

          Put a screenshot for that in your next post and screenshot for the hardware ids.


          I will see if i can see any close related drivers :-)


          I dont know for sure if it will work or not. You will need to give it a try.


          All the best,


          Kind Regards,
