I am having the same problem guys, I never had the issue with installing devices on my dual boot trial of Vista I ran on my D Drive, all device drivers i.e usb hard drives, portable storage, HID Keyboards and mice all installed straight away. However not I have upgrade my XP on my C drive I'm suffering the same problems as you guys - these same devices are detected but the indows Wizard report it needs drivers and can not find them locally, admittedly I am not sure if I have pointed in specifically to look in the windows folder, I know no drivers are found when I search "C:/" however if I seach "D:/" where my trial vista installation still exists it finds all the drivers/software from there!
There seems to be a lot of this problems on Microsofts official webpage community forums - many people typicall trying to install pen drive's/USB sticks and external drivers which in XP met know problems. There seems to be no official fix, except for changing the registry which I have not yet tried. Could someone confirm if the registry change works as a permanent fix, and could someone detial how to change or paste some text so ic ould make a *.reg file.
