View Full Version : Vista 64bit install ?

03-11-09, 08:48 PM
Hi I recently purchase a OEM copy of windows vista 64bit Ultimate from newegg.com and I am experience an issue with installation. When I boot off of the disc I get “press any key…” and then it proceeds to black and white “loading setup files” screen with progress bar and once that completes I am left at an all black screen with a very faint Microsoft Corp. type toward the bottom of the screen.. The type is very hard to see; however, after this for 3-4sec the computer reboots and process as normal for windows XP boot. Has anybody experience such a thing? If so what can be done install vista?
Things I have tried:

1. Different DVD drives.
2. Different copies of vista dvd’s.
3. Try disconnecting all USB devices and using old PS 2 keyboard and mouse.
4. Try different HD that are completely formatted.
5. Try only having 2gigs of memory installed..

And still the same problem…
Thanks for any help in advance…
