Just wondering if my mobo is bad.
i have a ASROCK AliveNF6P-VSTA mobo
So when i try to install windows vista it takes 15 minutes to boot up to select which language screen and another 15 minutes to select your partitions screen.
and im using a samsung dvd drive sataII and seagate barracuda 80gb hdd sataII to install vista.
so to see if my sata drives are at fault i replaced them with my working ide hdd and dvd drive and it still does the same thing.
and after i install vista i get lots of lock ups and bsods.
