I'm guessing there's no File System filters to disable, as this is happening during installation.
IDE Legacy mode is the process of running SATA Drives in similar communications pattern as IDE but you're still using a SATA Hard Drive.
Some Motherboard do NOT work well with XP or Vista when running SATA AS IDE. This can cause problems with file system filters/drivers during
installation, although this is much more rare today, or seems to be anyway.
That being Said, I would go into the Bios on your Motherboard, and find the SATA configuration options. The name for this can vary widely, but you
can find the details in the user's manual from your motherboard's support page. In your case, it looks like an ASUS motherboard, so I would start there.
Next, You want to download the AHCI Sata Driver for you Board's Chipset, Generally speaking, the one for XP will work on Vista, but please confirm this
on the Manufacturer's website.
Also, you're going to need a USB Floppy drive. (Just like a regular floppy drive but it's external and connects with USB)
In the Bios, you may need to enable USB Floppy drive emulation or some other functionality for USB to work. Remember that you're not Trying
to Boot from the floppy, but just want it recognized. The F6 or AHCI driver needs to be put on a floppy disk and loaded after you hit F6 when prompted
by the installation of Vista. Make sure you get the right version of this driver.
This Drive from New Egg or The model from Sony, also on Newegg, should both work for your purposes:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16821103402
Advanced Host Controller Interface is Well supported.
