This is a new system that I've just put together. Got my vista OEM home premium disk, loaded it up, setup installed, computer restarted, got to point where there is a horizontal status bar with Microsoft Corp below and computer restarts.

Here's my specs.
m/b-Gigabyte 965-dq6
processor- pentium d 820(not overclocked--yet)
hard drives--2 X seagate barricuda 7200.10 SATA2 500 gb raid0
ram-2gb (4X500mb)a-data ddr2 800
vga-sapphite radeon x 1950 pro
dvd+rw-asus ide
dvd-asus sata
power-silverstone 560W
cooling-thermaltake bigwater 735

I am using a flash drive to load sata drivers during install. Install does recognize the raid hardrive. I am running the hard drives on the gigabyte sata controller, not the intel southbridge.

This may not be the case, but the ASUS forum is full of people having similar problems until they went to the latest BIOS for the m/b. Have you tried that yet?

I was hoping to not have to update the bios yet since I don't have a floppy. I'm going to try and use my flash drive.

HP has a cool little utility for flash drives that makes them bootable and which your machine will see them as a floppy ...you can then load your drivers from the floppy on to your flash drive. I forgot what its called but I have it and I tried it. It works well.

I had vista stop at the error code and my error is stop:0x0000007B (0X82006BA0, 0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000) This seems to be an error related to the SATA. I'll look into more later, gotta go to work.

Forgive me for not remembering the exact source, but I believe I remember reading somewhere that it was better to install the OS in Standard IDE (non-RAID) mode when doing fresh installs to SATA drives. Once you're up and running, then you can switch it over. Just a suggestion, I am by no means an expert. Maybe I'm wrong, maybe it helps.

I am having the same exact problem (the freezing at the display of the status bar)....although I am not running my hds in raid.

Here's my specs:

m/b - Abit IL9 Pro
processor - pentium d 945
hard drive#1 - Maxtor Sata 200GB
hard drive#2 - Seagate Sata 300GB
ram - 2gb (4X512mb) kingston ddr2 533mhz
vga- xfx Geforce 7800GT
dvd+rw - Lite-On
dvd+rw - LG
power - Raidmax Volcano 630W

I've also updated the bios.....could I just have a bad copy of the OEM dvd?

Ok, that was the problem: the dvb-t hauppauge pci card that I had in a pci slot :?
At last I could install WVista ;)

I had the same problem...an ati tv wonder elite. I never could get the computer to boot with it in though, and later found out it just wasn't compatible.....

Same here. When connecting the WinTV NOVA-T at PCI slot, Windows Vista doesn't boots. I also tried with other WinTV HVR-1300, and Vista has the same behaviour.

It's really weird because these two cards are supposed to be Vista-compatible :?

Hi.
I've been keep trying some things...
If I connect two Hauppauge WinTv on the same motherboard, then Windows Vista boots 8O

So, it boots with no pci-cards or with 2 pci-cards, but it freezes just after loading the driver "crcdisk.sys" if only 1 pci-card is detected.
Anybody has any clue to solve this strange behaviour? I'm getting mad! :evil:
