I am trying to upgrade XP Home to Vista Ultimate.

I have the following:
Motherboard - Intel DP965LT (latest Bios)
Chip - Intel E6300
Western Digital 160 GB SATA Drive (2)
Pioneer DVD Burner - DVR 710 (2)
2 GB Memory

The upgrade fails immediately after Vista asks for language. I get the following error message.

VISTA install fails due to "missing CD/DVD" drivers.

I find very little out there when I search for this problem. Any ideas or suggestions???

Are the drives attached directly to the MB or are they on attached to a PCI card? Also, are they PATA or SATA? The only thing I can think of is that if they are SATA Vista may have issues accessing them. If you have an old DVD drive laying about you might try temporarily hooking that up to install the OS. Just a thought.
