I am trying to do a fresh install of vista on a laptop and after going around in circles during the installation I have finally found out that Sata drivers need to be installed as well.

I purchased the acer secondhand and it appears to be okay although full of junk and has only a drive letter C - it's runs exceedingly slow..
Thank you for any advice.....
