    I have Vista RC1
    I get it to come up to the screen with the Green Scroll thing going across
    saying Please Wait under it. Now i left it on that screen for an hour...
    the bar kept moving.. but nothing else... anyone else have this problem...
    and how long does it take to install vista. Does a Raid 0 Configuration make
    a difference... OR Sata

    My System
    MSI K9N SLI Platinum
    AMD Athlon 64 3800+
    2x 1gig OCZ 667mhz RAM
    2x 160gig SATAII Western Digital
    1x 250gig SATAII Western Digital
    Sound Blaster X-FI

    You didn't tell us if this is an Upgrade or a Clean Install. Upgrading tends
    to take much longer than a Clean Install which should complete in under an
    hour on most modern machines. Upgrading times vary widely from 1 hour to
    overnight.
