    Hi guys,

    I'd really appreciate some help with this.
    I've been trying to install Vista for a few days on my system comprised of a A8R32 Deluxe board and a NEC 3500AG DVD Drive. The reason I mentioned the DVD drive is because I'm getting a "Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing." error message after the language selection screen.
    When I click 'Browse' the dvd drive is indeed not listed but all the HDDs (all SATA btw) are listed. I mean the dirve the Vista installation just booted from it's now not found!?
    So I recon it's the IDE controler drivers that it needs.

    My board has the Ali M5229 chipset and the ALI dudes don't even have a support button on their site.
    The ULI also only has a very old ALLIDE.inf driver in the packge.

    Any ideas?

    Much apreciated,

    Thanks!

    I moved this to the vista forum. Since it is a vista problem, you might get some response here.

    See if there is a BIOS update for the motherboard. A BIOS update often fixes that error.
