    i just got a sata dvdrw drive today its sony/nec optiarc ad7170s i removed my old ide drive put this is it runs fine reading dvds etc i was going to do a format so i started it vista was very close of finishing the installation (after restarting were it test your pc) but then it bsods and i cant continue the installation i have to start over which i did 3 times bsod every time

    things i tried

    i cleared my bios cmos
    connected drive to all other sata ports
    tried another sata cable
    flashed its firmware from 1.00 to 1.12

    i reinstalled vista using my old ide drive and once it was set up now wenever i connect the sata drive when vistas shows it loading screen it bsods right after sometimes i get to log in but moments later it bsods again :banghead:

    bsods only happen with the drive rest of the pc runs fine

    Can you get the bios to emulate the drive as a PATA dvd drive,see if that helps.

    Some people have problems using a RAID setup and a SATA dvd drive.

    Just a thought,dont know if will help you,as I installed my Vista from SATA drive with no problems.
