Default Urgent help with Vista!

I just purchased a new hard drive (Seagate 250Gb 16Mb cache) and Vista. When trying to install it gets to the "Windows is loading files" part ( The first part) then gives me a blue error screen. Sometimes it just says nothing in particular and a few times it's given me these three things at the bottom "WDF01000.SYS"
"Sacdrv.sys"
"Sacdrv.sys"

Any idea what this means? I've tried everything I can think of. I'm trying to get this installed tonight so I don't have to do it tommorow so any help as soon as possible would be awesome, thanks guys.
