    You have 180 days of free support from MS with Vista. You can call them on
    the phone.

    Are you installing 64-bit Vista? The huge problem there has been
    finding drivers, particularly for nVidia chips and generally for
    SATA controllers also.

    Many here have been recommending to use 32-bit Vista until the
    64-bit machines become mainstream consumer items.

    BTW, my understanding is that 64-bit machines generally need
    more RAM than 32-bit machines, but I'd like to hear from someone
    who actually knows for sure.

  4. I had a similar problem. I had changed the BIOS to boot from DVD.
    Windows began installing then rebooted. The DVD was still in the
    drive. The installation failed. The repair function was unable to
    recover it.

    The solution was to stare at the monitor until the install program was
    ready to reboot and remove the install DVD.

    When you re-install, it will ask if you want the install program to
    save your old copy of Windows. Humor it and go along.

    I was able to retrieve files from a previous install, but the OS will
    fight you and refuse access to other files in the previous install

  5. I'm running 64 bit premium.

    The chipset is the Nvidia Geforce 6100-405. Microsoft update had the
    WDDM driver for it as well as a USB modem I'm using.

    The hard drive is Ultra ATA 100. The DVD burner is SATA.

    1gb of ram is installed. It's fast, but except for the installation of
    a couple of apps, it's running in out of the box default mode.

    In fact, I haven't even tried installing the DVD software. An external
    USB controller may or may have not contributed to the frequent
    crashes in the first intallation, (this is the third).

    Once I finally get some more work done, I'll hook the controller back
    up and see what happens.
