I can install anything but vista, why?
I have a compaq c-500. The COA on the laptop is vista. I install vista and I get 1" text saying unexpected error in installation, can not continue. However I can install XP Home, Pro and Windows 7 no problem.
1st thing, your install disk, get another one. I'm burning it from the same iso I use any other time and I used that same disk on another laptop.
2nd DVD drive. I changed the DVD drive and had the same issue.
3rd Changed the memory. Done
4th and in my opinion, most plausible when we got the laptop in, the screen was messed up. we put in a screen from a Toshiba laptop. The screen is working fine with xp & 7 and the install of vista, does vista automatically do the driver for what should be in the laptop?
Stumped beyond belief,
