Hi, Can anyone out there help me I have just built two new computers using: Asus P5VDU VMSE Via Sck 775 PCX Mo/Bo, Intel Celeron 440
2GHz Processor, SATA 160GB Hard Drive, SATA Optiarc DVD Drive, 2GB DDR2 667MHz RAM, and i've tried to install MS Vista Home Basic
without any success. First it comes up with a msg saying it needs drivers for the HD so I try the Drivers disc that came with the Mo/Bo
no joy. Phoned MS they said I needed to become a certified MS dealer so I joined when I phone them back they tell me they want to charge me 46 before they will even try to help (no assurance that they can) if they were for me they would now have Ubunu on them but unfortunately they aint, can anybody help me?

OK this may be sad but it looks like i'm gonna have to answer my own question.
I was trying to install the OS on a Samsung 160Gb SATA2 hard drive that was
not compatible with this motherboard. I put in a Maxtor SATA2 and Bingo all
done. You would have thought the supplier would have known this but hey
alls well etc.
cheers J.
