Media device not found while installing audio driver

Sometimes, when you make a clean Windows XP installation with outdated updates like Service Pack 2 or even Service Pack 3, maybe even an older version of Windows XP and try to install the audio driver you will get an error like this one: “Media device not found” or this one: “Driver Installation Failed: Could not find Media device for this driver”.
