    I recently obtained a copy of Vista and tried to setup using the disc. But
    everytime I pressed a key when it prompted "Press any key to boot from CD or
    DVD", my PC reboots. And the cycle continues. I can't even get to the setup
    page of Vista. What could be the fault? Thanks.

    My PC hardwares:

    Mobo : MSI K8NGM2-L (GeForce 6100 + nForce 410)
    CPU : AMD64 3500+
    RAM : 1GB (Corsair)(shared with VGA)
    VGA : Integrated GeForce 6 GPU (set at 64MB)
    Audio : 8 channel HD audio codec RealTek ALC880.
    Harddisk : 200GB Seagate (IDE), 300GB Maxtor (SATA)
    DVD Drive : BenQ (DW1620)(Slave), Samsung (SH-S182D)(Master)

    Can you boot from any other cd or dvd? Try with your XP install disk or,
    if you don't have one, Knoppix or a Bart's PE.

    If you can't, then you know it's a hardware issue.
