Problems loading Vista


Don't know if you can help or not but I am having a problem loading vista from scratch on a new pc. This is the second time I have loaded vista, so I know the spec of the PC is goo and all part bought are vista ready.
The problem I have is that when I install vista it goes through the first 4 stages, expanding, applying updates.....then reboots, after the reboot it looks like its going to work in that I get the green progress bar at the bottom of screed, but then it blue screens on me, indicating that it could be a hardware fault. Now the strange thing is, if I don’t change anything but the DVD and replace the vista cd with the windows xp cd and go through a fresh install deleting all partitions formatting drive and installing from scratch, it works fine.
In addition if I take the hard drive out after loading vista and put it into one of my other pc, vista continues with the install and successfully completes.

I can't work out for the life of me what I am doing wrong and would be grateful for any help.

Re: Problems loading Vista

What edition of Vista do you have? Without full version you can't put vista on first. You will need to have an old windows virsion like 98, 2000, .xp
Vista has about 7 differt Editios exp Home version complet, or upgrade,
Prof upgrade, or profel
if you have bought upgrade profl. You will need to have an old op of xp prof.

The Oline games Run very slowly

Seems that your is the your PC .I wonder if your OS is Vista since theirs some problems with.Serial devices including USB ones generate interupts every time they need the processor. These cause the processor to stop what it was doing, deal with the requirements of the serial device and then pick up where it left off. Usually the processor, which can handle hundreds of millions of instructions per second, handles these without faultering. However, If the amount of interupts increases, the processor has to spend more time stopping and restarting it's other tasks. You seem to be at the point that this is becomming noticable.
Upgrading to a Pentium II (not including the Celeron 266 or 300) or better should solve this problem.

According to the make & model of ur motherboard, do you have the necessary drivers for it. If u are running WinXP then it can be updated from the MB manufacturers website & if its Vista, then check whether all your hardware components are vista compatible. If any hardware is listed in the device manager window with an error yellow colored triangle try reinstalling the driver from the net, but if it still remains the same satus then that hardware is not vista compatible and vista does not allow external drivers to be loaded, so u might have to change that hardware or bear the loss of that component if not essential to ur normal work................sodeep

I need a Vista driver for the USA-19QW Serial Adapter

I have an old 4-port Keyspan serial device that also doesn't work with Vista.  Unfortunately Keyspan didn't provide Vista drivers for some of the older USB to Serial devices before they were acquired by Tripp-Lite, so you will probably need to get a replacement (Keyspan usa-19hs has Vista support, that one works for me).  The support page for Keyspan USB devices is here: USB Connectivity & Device Servers
