Okay first off this is a legal copy, as I am a Microsoft Volume Licensing Partner and got Vista thru eOpen. Photo is proof of my ownership of Vista licenses.
On my most recent computer thats not currently overclocked (Q6600, 4GB RAM [checked for memtest errors], 8600GT, eVGA 680 SLI [122-CK-NF68-A1]), I cannot install vista. XP PRO is currently installed on the computer and I have no problems at all and it passes Prime 95, 3DMARK and Nvidia Stress test.
First off before I had volume licensing for Vista, I was using some torrented copies of Vista and had constant BSOD's, with some talking about disabling video bios shadowing which was disabled. They BSOD constantly, actually got it installed once and vista appeared to work fine. I shrugged this problem off because it was not an original disc.
Than, I upgraded my BIOS and got my 100% genuine vista media from microsoft. I tried installing Vista 64bit, however it constantly freezes at the second screen of install (The screen where it says Vista and their is supposed to be a bar moving across the screen)
Does any have any ideas?
