Did you install the unique Dell laptop's system/motherboard drivers during the installation process?

Did you change anything in the BIOS?

Is SATA mode set to IDE or AHCI?

Unless he slip streamed, I doubt it. He should of installed the Intel Matrix Driver when he had the option when installing Vista ( we get a lot of them at work )

If you're comfortable in the BIOS, you can change it to SATA instead of AHCI, which should let you boot to windows, you can then install all of Dell's drivers for this model, then you can switch back to AHCI.
