As per instructions on install guide, I went to "www.seagate.com/glflexhomesupport/" for assistance on software installation...
After quite a bit of searching, the only thing I could find was an ISO file to download to recreate a lost software installation cdrom...
NO REFERENCE AT ALL FOR NON-CDROM DRIVE SOFTWARE INSTALL!

YOu really done need the software.
YOu and get to the setting by the IP dress of the GoFlex HOme drive.
But if you wish, you can download software for virtual DVD drive, and load a ISO file. THem you computer thinks to have a DVD player. From there you and instal ltrhe software.

Let me see if I can expand on the last post a bit.
First and foremost, you don't need the GoFlex software at all to access the drive.
(On the second link here, click the top link "Go Flex Not Detected" and then the Top Link again "Using Go Flex without Dashboard")
The device is UPnP aware so it should simply "show up" on your network as disks, mountable by Win 7.
If you'd prefer to install the Seagate Software, however, there is a way to do so even without a physical CD Rom / DVD Drive in your PC.
As hinted at by the previous poster, there is a piece of software called "Virtual Drive": http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html
I believe Win7 has a built in tool to mount ISO images as well, but most of us use Virtual Drive as it's a bit more robust.
Install VirtualDrive, download the ISO file and then mount the ISO image through VirtualDrive: You'll have the GoFlex software installed and can do what you're used to.
This, btw, will work on pretty much ANY ISO you need, so even games and things of this nature will now be playable/accessible to you on this PC without a DVD Drive.
