Ok. Long story short, here is how I installed vista 5308 and got it
booting off of a sata 3112 controller that is on the asus a7n8x

First... install vista on an ide drive. (Cant get the install to
recognize sata, even with drivers)

Once installed, download a sata driver from silicon image. I used
Dont connect your sata drive when doing this, just let it detect the

Next... I used windows xp, to ghost my ide vista drive, to my sata
vista drive. I used ghost 2003, simple enough...

Now... if you try to boot of the sata drive. It wont work.
It says something like winload.exe is corrupt 0xc000000e.....

Here is what I did next.

go to console
cd c:\windows\system32
bcdedit /set {default} osdevice boot
bcdedit /set {default} device boot
bcdedit /set {default} detecthal 1

Thats it. Reboot and it should work. It did for me
