Base from the description of your problem the CD/DVD drive that you have cannot load a driver for it , so the operating system that you're trying to install cannot continue read the Windows 7 or Vista to proceed the installation. So the best way to correct this is to install first a XP if you have or better try using a different CD/DVD drive there.

That message says that the hard disk was found but nothing on it can be used - Vista is completely corrupted. You will have to reinstall it using the recovery cd that came with it when you bought it.

This happens on installing vista the first time If u can install despite this message(ignore), then restart in safe mode and if your Vista is genuine then ask microsoft to send this particular file(SHELL32 if I h'nt forgotten) replace where the original is supposed to be and after that it should be fine. The Only other option is to Install WinXP_SP3 & enjoy.....sodeep

Installing Sprint Smartview on Windows Vista --Dell laptop


Smartview is supposed to work with Vista. Did you right-click on the install file and run as administrator?

If you can not get it to work there is a work around.

First, download and install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software. After installation, plug in your BlackBerry and start up the software for the first time. Open the Options -> Connection Settings… window and set the connection to USB. Plug in the BlackBerry, enter your password if applicable, and Vista will find the device and install a “standard modem”.
Open the Control Panel
Network and Internet
Connect to a network
Set up a connection or network
Set up a dial-up connection
Select Standard Modem
Dial-up phone number is #777
Connect.

Everything should work, some have reported faster speeds using this method over the Smartview program.
