Why the Windows Vista Gold version cannot be installed on my notebook? (Centrino 2 models)

 

[Solution]

When you try to install the Windows Vista Gold version onto a Centrino 2 model, the installation can not be finished.

Since Centrino 2 models have been developed for Windows Vista SP1, they do not support Windows Vista Gold. So you have to install with the VISTA SP1 OSCD provided buying the product.

    To install Windows Vista Gold, set the AHCI option to disable in the CMOS Setup before the installation. Please refer to below.

    1. Enter BIOS Setup by pressing F2 key during boot.

    2. Go to “Advanced” menu.

    3. And select the “AHCI Mode Control”.

    4. And change it to “Disabled”.
