Very first build ... and just when I thought I was free and clear too. Vista Home premium (64) loaded to about 99%, then the screen went black and restarted ... now it's stuck telling me:
"The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected
error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install windows, click
"OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation."

Trying with one stick now ...
The Ram voltages were set at auto and +.2 by the mobo
The boot order was 1st hard drive, 2nd cd/dvd
I'm pretty sure that's why I'm getting the repeating error .. but the weird (scary) thing is when I go back into bios - I'm unable to edit 80% of the fields I could before(?) Included in that is the boot order.
justtom no version of vista will complete the install with 4 gig of ram. you have to install with 1 or two gig apply a patch from microsoft then add the rest of you ram. you can't even slipstream the patch and install with 4 gigs. should be fixed with sp 1. you can google vista error and 4 gig ram for more info
