    RE: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing


    Hi Ray,

    Sounds like you may have Nero ImageDrive installed on your machine. This
    version may not be compatible with Vista or at least during setup. If you can
    boot back into XP I would suggest uninstalling All Nero Products then try the
    upgrade. In the $windows.~BT\Sources\Panther directory there should be a file
    called setupact.log which may have more info on the problem but it sounds
    like Nero is your culprit.
    If your still having issues please post back with the setupact.log file.

    Thanks

    Ron thanks I believe you are right on target. The only concern I have is
    related to imagedrv.sys when i uninstall will a ms driver take its place?
    Does ms have a driver called imagedrv.sys and how do I retrieve this driver?

    Thanks

    Hi Ray,
    This driver is not part of the Windows operating system and is not
    needed/required for setup. It actually belongs to your Nero software. This
    software may or may not work in Vista and an update from Nero may be
    required..
