    I've seen one other guy (zephyrhills) who was having the same problem as I.
    I have installed vista onto a second partition and when I boot my pc it gives
    me the screen to choose OS. Upon the first time choosing Vista it worked
    great!!! I wanted to restart to xp (and did) then went back to vista (after
    making no changes). It told me that it didn't shut down correctly and gave
    me the choicies (safe mode... last known good config... normally) so i chose
    normal. It started to boot, but then hung up and eventually my monitor went
    off because of no signal from the pc. I'm using DVI btw. So anyway, i
    restart again and do last known good config. Works great!!! so i install the
    drivers thinking this is why, and restart to vista, same thing!!! Wont boot
    normally, and only works with last known config. When i choose last known
    good config, it reverts back to the pc's original state (no drivers or
    anything) so i'm in this non stop loop. Any help would be apprecatiated.
    Specs below:

    A8n SLI deluxe mb = amd 64bit 3500+ SATA 190 gig maxtor hard drive, 1 gb ram.

    thanks

  2. I had this problem up until build 5365, it seems my half duplex modem for
    which there was no driver available at the time was causing this. I would
    open Control Panel > (set to Class View) > open Proble Reports and Solutions
    better help you to see which device is causing crashes.

  3. I had the same problem, but I had a hinch that it was my Graphics card (An
    Nvidia 6600GT) which was the problem as if I restarted before Windows
    automatically installed the standard generic driver then it would reboot
    fine. So after loading in Last Good Config mode I went to the Nvidia site and
    downloaded the drivers for Vista, Installed them and restarted with my
    fingers crossed.

    Problem Solved and 5 restarts later it's still booting fine!
