I formatted windows then when I try to reinstall from the retail disk or my other vista setup dvd (any disk) I keep getting an error. I dont get it windows worked fine before (dont ask y i formatted) When I try to install windows off the a disk I get this message:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert disk rester.
2. Choose your language, next
3. Click "repair computer"

If you do not have the disk contact.....blah.

File: \windows\system32\drivers\megasr.sys

Status: 0xc0000221

Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

... wild guess

... SATA drivers to load @ F6 ? (sounds like hard disk "Raid" array)

... ca'nt find much on google not for Cq50-215nr

... they'd be on "recovery disks"

megasr.sys
MegaIDE.sys ??

Its got no floppy drive how do I load the drivers. And I figured the SATA drivers were installed if the hard disks partitions showed up in the installation menu. Maybe it shows up, but wrong incorrect drivers so it shows but dosent function correctly?

... do you have the drivers?

... if yes, will it let you remove the "Vista" dvd replacing it with a newly burnt cd with the drivers on?

... and then switch "back" or perhaps there might be a "ram" drive you could copy them to?

... the important thing is that you have the drivers?

"...Can I intergrate the drivers into an Vista .iso setup and burn it with the drivers!? ..."

... I have just in the last 24hrs downloaded a program that will do that!! ... hav'nt had a chance to look @ it!

... plz let us know if the other suggestions work

Just for the heck of it I tried XP and it made it to the hdd section so it showed up, xp somewhat had the drivers, but after reformat upon copying of new installation files it goes to bsod? Same driver issue?

OK I found a way to get drivers off a DVD/CD and a USB thumb drive during installation! BUT no drivers work! AGHH The checkbox Hide drivers not compadible is checked and it shows nothing If I uncheck I tried a few anyway and still no hard disks show up under the installation window. I downloaded the right chipset driver from compaq and it found some sata drivers but none of them worked.
