I have been trying to install the Windows 10 Preview on my computer but it says I need media drivers.

I have also tried installing on Windows 8 and It gives me two error messages one about a bad image and a second one saying the file autorun.dll could not be loaded or is corrupt.

It sounds like you didn't get a good copy of the ISO file. That's what the bad image message was about. I used the Win7 USB DVD tool to make a bootable USB. But it said I couldn't use it. Instead I had to boot to Windows 8.1 and then run the extract files.

Just use the Win 7 USB tool. You'll need a USB that can be overwritten. Here a link to Microsoft page on the tool. http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool

Additionally, depending on your system, if the BIOS is set to UEFI rather than legacy it is possible that the downloaded ISO of the Tech Preview is incapable of creating a UEFI compatibility DVD.
That maybe where the "media drivers" issue is being produced from.
Two options if your board is one of a newer variety supporting UEFI you can always configure it to legacy boot and probably disable "fast boot" while you're at it.
OR.... probably a better way if you have a spare usb thumb drive laying around 4 gigs or larger.
Use Rufus http://rufus.akeo.ie/
to create a UEFI compatible boot device out of your spare USB thumb drive.
