okay, heres the problem. I built a computer made entirely of new hardware and when i tried installing windows vista i got the blue screen of death (BSOD). I installed windows xp and tried running the vista setup from windows. It did fine untill it restarted to continue setup and then on setup load i got the BSOD again.
The Vista disk is a brand new Home Premium disk. I also tried installing of a different vista disk and same thing...
When i boot into the cd, it loads setup files and goes into the bootup screen with the green bars moving at the bottom. When that finishes the BSOD pops up. It always comes up at that point. What can i do and what is my problem?
Are you running SATA? I have heard some driver issues (usually its Maxtor drives) with SATA that you wouldn't normally encounter otherwise. If you are, you may want to make sure you have the most up-to-date drivers for your hard drive, if possible. I had to go from a Maxtor to a WD due to a similar issue.
I'm not sure if its the same on your motherboard, but in most of the computers that I have its listed under Advanced CMOS, and check Memory Settings. Also, look in your motherboards manual and the Gigabyte website for more details.
As for the settings, I wouldn't advise you to change anything till I see the BSOD code.
Alright guys...ahh...i think my DVD-Drive sorta burnt and stoped working. I had to replace it with a CD drive, so i can't boot into the vista DVD anymore...If i fix this issue i'll repost this discussion, but i'm gonna end this one for now...
