For me, I have encountered the above error even though I have purchased a certified Windows Vista pre- installed Acer Notebook just few months ago (Acer Aspire 5. WXMi). This becomes a very frustrating experiences as I try many suggestions from internet without much success.

Microsoft might have thought that Vista might have improved the sales of new hardware and system but it forget that Linux is gaining popularity as a destop OS too.
