ACer Aspire... can't upgrade Vista

Hi All,
I am trying to upgrade my laptop to Windows 7 from Vista.

All the editions are compatible, but when it gets to the "Select device driver...", there is NO drivers to be selected at all.

Any help or direction, greatly appreciated.

See my post

In short, try changing your SATA setting in your BIOS to AHCI.
