What optical drive is compatible with Windows 11?


Hi Everyone,

I am preparing for a first time PC build & ran across the slight issue of what optical drive is compatible with Windows 11. Usually in my search everything is compatible with Windows 10 but not 11, would anyone know if in theory, I would to purchase an ASUS optical drive, would one just need to install a driver for windows 11? or would it simply read the DVD on to the new PC I am attempting to do a clean install on? I have heard of the USB way but sadly do not anyone that has a spare laptop with DVD reader laying around to create a copy for me on a USB. Any answers will kindly help.
