    I purchased Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Upgrade Edition and installed a
    fresh copy of Windows Ultimate on my HDD (30-Day Trial).....

    Installation went smoothly... Once vista loaded I went to run the upgrade on
    pc using my HP DVD 640I DVDRW Drive and got the following error message:
    "Windows Setup experienced an unexpected error. To install Windows, restart
    the installation. Error Code: 0x0"
    When I used the DVD on my LG DVDRW Drive it went through with no problems...
    I did some searching and found out this could be an issue with the primary
    (Master) Drive hence it working with my secondary drive (LG)... I swapped the
    drives around and still had the same problem on the HP Drive. I removed the
    LG drive and only used the HP drive, still the same problem. I can install
    all other software with the HP drive apart from Microsoft Office Professional
    2007 and Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    You need to uncheck the Enable DMA option for the IDE channel you
    drive is on. This can be found under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers in Devic

    Good luck
