uh...Explain in more detail please.
What computer are you using? What bit level is 7? What are your drivers and are they compatable with Vista?

Firstly, how could you possibly like Windows Vista more than Windows 7? Seriously, HOW??!?!??!?!?

Second, did you delete the Windows 7 partition before installing Vista?
