Do either of you know someone on these forums that can help me?

I really save my weekends for computer gaming, this is going to give me a bad weekend.

Yes, it is legitimate.

I formatted in the setup of Vista.

ive installed vista about 5 times...(3 for me) and ive never encountered that problem.

If you want, you could always download a vista copy online and use your serial code.
It wont be illegal since your using a legal code.

I just updated my BIOS.

My last BIOS version was from the start of January, I hope that was the problem.

We will find out in just a little bit.

I did a little googling, and came up with various 'fixes' to problems people experienced like yours.

Some people that had DAEMON TOOLS installed when they had XP on their system had a problem similar to yours after installing Vista. Though, if you formatted before hand, this shouldn't be a problem. I guess it can't hurt running DBAN over your hard drive to be sure though.

Try disconnecting devices that aren't needed. After Vista is installed, maybe disconnect CD drives, or anything else you can think of. See if it will boot then.

Someone reported Vista booting fine after disabling USB Keyboard support in his bios.

Good luck! Hope things aren't this rough on me when I get Vista!

Here is some more info I found:
Quote:
Have been searching the forum for months trying to find a solution to
the halting installation, usually thought to have been associated with
crcdisk.sys.

The problem is in fact caused by pcmcia.sys files! To get round this,
you need to delete or rename two files, but this can't be done from the
safe mode command prompt, due to permissions.

Instead, reboot from the install dvd and go to repair, then command
prompt. Locate and rename the following files...

Navigate to: c:\windows\system32\drivers\
Rename pcmcia.sys pcmcia.old
Navigate to: c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\
Rename pcmcia.inf_539d553e pcmcia.inf_539d553eold

Tried it on my computer and it worked great, figure you already know this but maybe by chance someone else is looking and this is what they get first

Thanks for the help, I will do that.

BIOS update didn't help. Although the error is a little different now I think, but still the BSOD.

Also, I did have DAEMON tools but reformatted like you said.
