I’m doing a fresh install on a brand new self-built machine. I have an Asus P5Q3 Deluxe WiFi AP @n motherboard, with the Panasonic LF-PB271 OEM version SATA Blu-Ray/DVD/CD-ROM Reader/Writer as optical drive, then 4 MAXTOR 160GB SATA II hard drives, 8GB of RAM, and a Q9550 2.83GHz Quad Core processor. This is all in a Smilodon Raidmax Gaming Development case with an ETASIS 850W PSU.
I can boot up the Vista 64-bit DVD, and I click on Install Now, and it then prompts me for a driver for a “CD/DVD” drive. I’m not sure why.
