Gigabyte GA-990xa-UD3 mobo
AMD FX-8120 Black edition CPU
Sapphire Radeon HD6770 graphics card
2x 4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 memory
Seagate 1TB harddrive
Thermaltake thoughpower 850W power supply (can't find a model number, lost the box. It's from my last build)
Everything works fine. Boots right up. Doesn't seem to have any issues with hardware. But I go into the BIOS, set it to boot from CD, then it says "Loading Operating System..." then says "Boot from CD/DVD" (I'm trying to install Windows Vista 64-bit Ultimate)
After a minute it says "Windows is loading files" with a progress bar, like you would expect on a fresh install. Then it flashes the windows loading logo, goes to a black screen and stays there frozen.
It seems like it is trying to boot the OS from the disk instead of starting a fresh install.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I need to get this computer working as soon as possible.
The disk is not scratched. Works fine in other computers. I'm thinking that it's the disk in some way... but i really wanted to see if anyone had any other ideas before I went out and bought another disk.
