this thread can be deleted i solved my problem

I would love to know what the problem was and how you fixed it? I hope I am not being too nosey.:o

i would like to know as well

Vista does not like RPC1 drives. Maybe this is the problem…


All my drives are RPC1 and they’re working fine.


how did you solve the problem? :eek:

My drive’s a Plextor px-716a and I’ve been having the same problem with vista ultimate 64.

Been re-installing 3 times yesterday, thinking I was doing something wrong.
Thought it had something to do with the inboard soundcard (ac97 on a A8N32-Sli deluxe).

please share wisdom :confused:

I found the solution :cool:

Suggest you also check your motherboard manufacturer’s site for bios and driver updates for Vista.
