Question about Sony VAIO R-Series (VGC-RA718G) PC Desktop
Trying to reinstall either vista or Xp and both OS's Pause when setup loads. It gets stuck on Windows Is starting up after it boots from cd. I have a sony VGC-RA718. the reason I am reinstalling it is because all of my usb ports just stopped working.
This sounds like a HAL problem, have you tried to intall by disabling ACPI. You do this by hitting F7 during the screen that asked if you want to install additional drivers. You hit F6 to install additional drivers and F7 to skip the ACPI check. You can also hit F5 to try one of the ACPI layers that comes up. If you hit F7, this disables ACPI silently, you never see anything come up. If you hit F5 a screen will come up with some options, use the arrow buttons to scroll through the choices as only three choices show at a time.
