The issue has been discussed in the forum but I have a little bit different question that I have in mind.
My neighbour had Vista Home premium. He had formatted his HDD cause he preffers XP but no luck with XP installation neither with Vista installation on his computer. He gets BSOD 0x0000007b when installing xp and when installing Vista he gets an error that drivers for CD/DVD are missing and you can't go on only exit the setup. The installation disk is in sata DVD RW. The problem is definately with sata drivers that xp doesn't have unless we have the Acer's drivers disk, but we don't.
The neighbour got so frustrated that he is ready to work with vista again and insists that I will take his HDD (WD 320G - also sata) and install Vista Ultimate (with my disc) on my machine - MSI PM8PM-IL (which never fails in installations) and will bring him back. He assumes that everything will work fine as it was.
If I really make this procedure and put his HDD back to his Acer, will everything work fine? does Vista Ultimate has all the sata drivers or should I search for the Acer's original sata drivers?
Don't actually remember the ACER's mobo model but sure it's a new one.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in Advance:)
