  2. try reburning the ISO at a low speed, 2x recommended, also do a CRC check on
    the ISO to find out its integrity. Nero MD5 Verifier is a recommended
    choice. If setup still fails, its likely a bad download.

    I use the one from Ahead Nero

    Here are the MD5/CRC values for x86 or x64 depending on which every ISO you

    - File Size = 3.12 GB (3,355,598,848 bytes)
    - CRC Value = 0x67E089E0
    - MD5 Value = 0E733AB1A8E8FF9A8684FD3639332773
    - File Size = 4.01 GB (4,309,368,832 bytes)
    - CRC Value = 0x48697711
    - MD5 Value = E43502D0A15EADD551119D5639859E04

    Paste the MD5 Checksum for either x64 or x86 depending on which one you want
    check in Step 1, Step 2 - Browse to where you stored the ISO on your drive
    and open it and it will automatically start the varification process and
    generate the has in the third field, if it matches Step 1, then you are

    Thanks for your help!
    1- verified the ISO with the Nero verifier
    2- mounted the ISO as a drive and ran the install from there -not fixed
    3- burned a 2x dvd- not fixed

    other suggestions?

    same problem with me, just realized that Vista setup doesn't include the
    drivers for my SATA hard disc drive and so basically it is trying to boot off
    of a program installed on a disc that it has no driver to understand, i
    believe. I'm currently searching for the fix, I found the driver on HP.com
    but I'm not sure where and when to use it.

    My System:
    HP dv8230us
    Windows XP Media Center
    Intel Duo Core T2300E 1.66GHz Dual Core
    1GB RAM
    2x 80GB SATA HDD
    Nvidia 7400 Grapics Card

    wow, you are right, I never suspected that because the SATA driver includes
    so many systems right now..... I started install from the xp desktop, loaded
    the Intel Sata Driver (ICH7 AHCI) and bam... done....

    (at a minimum the ICH7 running in AHCI non-raid mode) AND YOU HAVE TO LOAD

    Piratetommy... if you start from XP desktop... when you choose the install
    partition there is a button to load drivers... they have to be on a CD or
    floppy...then it'll work....I don't know how to add them on a straight DVD
    install boot.

    Oh. My. God. I am having the exact same problem except Vistax64 doesn't find
    the file on my Floppy disk.

    I have a 945GTP with ICH7GH/GR running in AHCI mode.

    I'll try burning the files to a CD to eliminate the possibility of a
    defective FDD.

    Could you give me more specific information on the drivers you used
    successfully? If this CD thing fails then I'll check the version I'm using
    against the one you are.

    Thanks So Much!

    I installed x86, so I don't know if the Intel driver install will work on
    x64, I'm planning to try out x64 today... if that happens I'll update this
    post. Intel doesn't post Vista drivers yet so I used the XP stuff.
    Additionally, they only provide either a 1) F6 floppy maker that in
    non-extractable (not very useful if you don't have a floppy) and 2) a
    fullinstaller for Matrix storage manager, which has cab's but I can't extract
    the driver.....so.....

    My procedure was: download XP 32 F6 floppy maker, make floppy, copy to CD,
    install Vista x86 from XP desktop to second partition. I used

    FOR ALL INTEL ICH 8 / 7 / 6 AHCI AND RAID 0 / 1 / 5 / 10 DRIVERS:

    XP 32 BIT here


    XP 64 BIT here
