Default Serious Vista Device problem

Hi,
I've got windows Vista Ultimate x64. Basically, For ANY device I connect (including my DVD drives and mouse) except for my keyboard Vista runs through the driver install process but then says : " Windows found the device driver software but encontered an error when trying to install"
I need to fix this urgently , and its impossible to re-install because I cannot boot from a disc drive.
Please please please help me!

Instead of letting Windows automatically install the drivers using the wizard, go onto the respective websites of all your component's manufacturers and manually download and install each one, they should work then, unless of course there is a more serious issue at play here.
