I dont know if this helps but i think thats because you have no vid card drivers installed therefore its asking to install default generic VGA drivers, you should simply cancel it and install the new drivers or select choose drivers to install.....

I think i'm on the right track with that....... anyone care to add?

Depending on which version of windows you're using, you can just tell it to search for the best driver, but don't specify any. If there aren't any drivers matching the vid cards ID, it'll install a standard VGA driver. Like i mentioned before, this is dependant upon which version of windows you have. (you didn't mention it in your post).

Whenever a vid card driver is not installed, windows defaults to standard VGA or 640x480 and it can reach SuperVGA on the default driver or 800x600, you probly use modes like UltraVGA or 1024x768 XtremeGA, or 1280x768,812,960,1024, SuperXGA, or 1400x1040, or UltraXGA, or 1600x1200, then there are successively higher modes with acronyms that I cannot remember
