I've seen issues with some motherboards that aren't Vista compatible. Nothing quite like this, but I've had some issues with my MSI motherboard (most driver related), and with the wife's Intel board (it has something to do with the chipset, SATA, and the Away feature of the later Intel chips).
I also suspect that there were some slight changes in the NTFS file system with Vista (but haven't confirmed it) that could theoretically cause similar issues. For example, if loading ntfs.sys causes the mobo to shift control of the devices to the file system that loads - and if the file system isn't compatible with the mobo's BIOS/construction - then it might not work. But this is just sheer guesswork on my part.
