i went to the vista website and there were tons of threads on the topic, people that used sata hdds with sata dvds, and people that used sata hard drives with ide dvds both. and the only way for them to get the program on their computer was using hefemeisters method. i was going to do try and get it done before i went to work but i didnt wake up till 2pm and had to be at work at 3pm
im just hoping that the flash drive method works, if not ill try to find another method, or just find an old xp disk and try installing xp then upgrading to vista.
