Do you have the latest firmware for your DVD drive? It may be that Vista is
looking for the controller drivers, not CD/DVD drivers per se. Are there
Vista drivers available for that motherboard from Tyan? Do you know which
chipset it uses?
The Upgrade Advisor can only advise on hardware and software that the
respective manufacturers have given the information to Microsoft for, so it
will not catch everything.
Visit manufacturers websites to determine if the devices have Vista support.
