    I run the Upgrade Advisor and it says my hardware passed. All I have plugged
    in is video, hard drive, 1 rom, floppy, keyboard and mouse. After it says
    Windows Vista is going to run for the first time, I get a blue screen but it
    is gone so fast I can't read it. The computer restarts and I have the option
    to go into Safe Mode, Start Normal etc. Doesn't matter which one I choose it
    says Windows wasn't installed properly, run the installation from the cd/dvd
    again. I also bought new 1GB RAM to eliminate the possibility of the problem
    being my RAM. I have tried three different hard drives, Western Digital,
    Maxtor, Fujitsu with more than adequate space. What more can I try to make
    this work.

    My System
    ASUS P4P800 motherboard
    3.0 GHz
    1 GB Ram
    Radeon X1600 video
    Hard Drive
    Floppy

    Please help, a lot of money to just sit on shelf

    Lets assume you are not using the RAID function of the board which leaves a
    SATA HD???
    Does your mobo have SATA drivers?? We're they loaded during the Vista
    Install??
    Do you have only one drive connected??
    Look at page 2-27 of your mobo manual.
