    Hi, i recently downloaded RC1 of vista and burnt it on a dvd and the dvd
    works fine, when i install vista it gets to installing features and updates
    and it starts to reboot at first i thought it was routine but it continually
    rebooted at the startup screen. any help would be greatly appreciated and i
    am not greatly experienced in these things so clear explenations would be
    even more appreciated.

    If you are doing an upgrade of a previous windows version. you may have to
    go back and uninstall incompatible programs and unplug unnecessary devices.
    You also may have to resort to a clean install, also with unnecessary
    devices (especially USB) unplugged.

    Remove the Vista DVD from the drive during the first reboot.
    Somehow I think it is accessing to it, restarting the install process.

    This is the new RIF (reiterative installation feature) in Vista.

    When it reboots and asks you to press any key to boot from the DVD, don't
    press any keys.
