i used to play war hammer 40,0000 and war hammer dark crusade.

recently i purchased an alien ware laptop and tried installing the game and i received an I/O device error less than halfway through the installation.

i thought it was something with my alien ware, so i tried with another laptop of mine (also running vista) a dell inspiron 1501..and i received the same error "The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error" and then the installation closes.

are these games only for xp and don't work on vista? because i paid almost 4 grand for this laptop so i can play games and this sucks.

any help would be appreciated with this

It is more than likely a Vista problem. You could try and run it using XP compatibility mode.
