Are you dealing with SATA/RAID???

Also, check your motherboard manufacturer's website for Vista drivers.

What happens when you press "Load driver" ?
Is F: marked as bootable?

thanks very much for reply.
I had windows xp on partition C and using it to install windows vista.
if press "Load Driver" and try for some directory as : CDROM with main board disk inside, WinXPDir\System32\Driver  and the installer say "not found driver"

@Ultrano : what do you mean "marked as bootable" ? i don't know how to mark it and i think the OS Setup will do that, not me.

1. You installing from an installation DVD right ? The message in the image says "...restart from installation disc ..." (Maybe this the problem)

2. The Disk1Partition1 (F: in the image) might not be a "primary" partition??? Maybe Vista needs the partition to be a primary partition.

Hope that helps,
