    I just built a killer system,with way more requirements needed to install or
    run vista.
    Go to install vista, it starts the install, them tells me my drivers for
    the device i'm installing with are not there, every thing was in place before
    i started,now this, i start again from formating a brand new 320gb drive set
    all the bios and now i can't run vista because of the drivers for the dvd are
    gone,can't install drivers eather because i don't have an operating now.what
    to do? Talk about money wasted, i purchased vista- ultimate and home premium
    for my two systems in my home.
    what microsoft makes a product that they can't even work, but yet release
    it to us the public, My opin it sucks and wish i could get my money back,stay
    with xp or run win98se this is the best thing they ever made, old but good.
    IDEA- SHOULD GO TO MICROSOFT WITH A BIG ROCK TIE THE TWO CRAPIE PROGRAMS TO
    IT AND THROW IT THROUGH THERE WINDOW. THANKS FOR NOTHING.

    sorry to hear you have all this aggravation. I would think someone with your
    knowledge would wait and see rather than be the first guy on the block.

    Hope your issures are resolved easily

  3. Return Vista to the seller.
    Or if you live in North America, return to Microsoft:
    http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/productrefund/refund.asp

    But first verify the hardware is compatible with Vista.
    New does not guarantee Vista compatibility.
    Remove all non essential components such as NIC, sound card, modem etc and
    then try installing Vista.

    Take time to figure what went wrong. These things are a bit of a process of
    elimination. Sometimes a 'minimal' install is a good idea, then add hardware
    piece by piece. Vista should recognize most DVD and CD-ROM drives. If need
    be, if the DVD drive is the problem, get your hands on an inexpensive
    ordinary DVD ROM drive that is known to work with Vista and use it to
    install. And so on ..

    I probably can't help you much further but at what point exactly did the
    install routine first throw up a problem? Was there an error message, and,
    if so, what was it exactly?

    That's the price you pay for being an early adopter. You have to blame only
    yourself. How many 1st generation products are trouble-free? Not many.
    That's especially true for software. When was the last time that a software
    program ran perfectly without a single patch whatsoever?

    Your right,but they've been working on this for 3-4 years,+ I should have
    listen to myself and not the computer jerk where i purchased all the new hard
    wear, but it's still good to vent, and worn others not to make my mistake.

    I figure you are doing a clean install from scratch - is that so?

    In reality, it's more like 2-2 1/2, thanks to the "reset".

    "... run win98se this is the best thing they ever made..."

    Have you tried running Windows 98SE on this ultimate box of yours (read from
    another of your posts in this thread)? Let us know how that works out.

    Did you run the Vista Upgrade advisor?

    Have your tried removing the offending DVD drive to see if Vista will
    install?

    I assume by your comment "...wish I could get my money back..." that you
    purchased OEM copies of Vista? If you purchased retail copies, you -can- get
    your money back. If you purchased OEM copies, then you need to figure out
    what your problem is and fix it, because you consider yourself a system
    builder. Or... you need to go back to the person that sold you OEM copies of
    Vista and give that person an earfull because you are not a system builder.

    OK So you start the computer, put the DVD in the DVD tray and the thing
    starts booting up .. does the install routine start?

    ....

    AFAIR Win98 does not install on machines with a 2+ GHz CPU; I tried
    this in vain on a P4 2.4C.

    Ron,

    Gee... mixed feelings about doing that... It only proves something works in
    XP and doesn't fix the problem in Vista. Better, I think, to identify the
    source of the problem and address it. Most likely, it's a driver issue. But
    could be a combination of things...

    Thanks,

    Lang

    Roy,

    Yeah... that's why I wrote "Let us know how that works out." I don't know...
    maybe too cheeky, maybe not...
