Would need to know the full system specs to know what drivers you need to inject into the image

Is it enough or you need information about something else?

The optical drive driver is often a generic Windows driver. Have you run sfc /scannnow or dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth? The driver may be corrupted, or I would look in device manager and get the device code being reported to further troubleshoot.

CD/DVD drive missing can be caused by various reasons like Windows 10 update, corrupt driver, out of date firmware, or a factory defect. You say you just upgrade to Windows 10, it might be the culprit. You can try the tips below to see whether it's working:
1. reinstall or update device driver
2. uninstall IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in Device Manager
3. make changes to the Windows 10 registry.
