Liverman,

You don't tell what 'recovery' means.

There are a lot of 'early VGA device' hits on google, and they all have to do with VGA cards detected incorrectly or interfering with on-board video. This is just one: http://www1.vobis.de/bbs/firmen/elsa_c99/graphics/erazor3/readme.txt

The best to do, in my opinion, is install a standard video driver when the new hardware wizard asks for it. Then go into Device Manager and disable this ghost device. A disabled device won't be detected as new hardware, but it won't do anything else either.

Hope this helps.
