I was trying to load Vista 64 on a new 80g sata Intel SSDS, as the main OS, Vista loads all the way till the end of the operation, and when it gets to loading the very last phase of updating system, it reboots and comes back with a screen saying that windows rebooted unexpectedly and wants to start the install all over again! I tried it a couple of times with the same result.
It sees the HD ok, I did the firmware update from Intel.
this is on a Dell XPS 9000 I7 2.6
