    They say no news is good news. However did that link work for you as it did for me?

    Resolving the "Standard PC" Problem

    I was also running into the "Standard PC" driver problem but resolved it this afternoon.

    I downloaded Vista from Windows Marketplace and so did not have a bootable DVD, which causes the "Standard PC" error, I believe. There are good instructions on how to create a bootable ISO (if you have all of the other Vista files) available here.

    Note: the actual command line should include forward slashes (i.e. "Vista\boot\etfsboot.com", "C:\Vista" and "C:\Vistax86.iso")

    Follow the directions posted earlier from Paul Thurott's site.

    With a bootable ISO / DVD, everything should work with no "Standard PC" driver missing error.
