You don't need a hdd (or ssd) driver (they do not exist, all hdd and ssd's are in themselves "standard") you need a driver for your specific motherboard chips (usually the missing piece that causes the 0x0000007b bsod are the drivers for the PCI SATA bridge and/or the IDE/SATA/AHCI controller).

Post the exact specifications of your laptop/motherboard, so (if a suitable driver for Vista exists) members may be able to point you to one.

You can try (if your BIOS has this option) to install in IDE compatibility mode, though in this mode you will probably loose much of the increase in speed the ssd may offer.

If a suitable manufacturer driver cannot be found, you may check/try the UNIATA driver:
