Default Installing Vista...

should be fairly easy....

I mean it's not the first time i'm installing an OS. But something is weird. It's going through the installing section and it mentions it will restart several times. But when it restarts; it boots my disc again and restarts the same process again, prior to the restart. Therefore it keeps asking me for the serial, the partitions, whether I'm upgrading or starting clean.

Help?

Don't let it boot the disc again.

I usually set the Hard drive as the priority, then force it to boot from cd rom when installing an os, that way I don't have this problem.
