Ok, i recently built myself a new computer. I am 100% sure i have assembled everything correctly because i have done this sort of thing before.
This is my first time with vista.
Ok, so i booted from the dvd and tried to install vista onto my hard drive. I have tried this many times and at a different point every time my installation will freeze. This locks up the entire system. I am doing a clean install of vista on a brand new western digital 250gb SATA hardrive.
I have installed new drivers and BIOS updates, but none of this seems to work. I have also had a few blue screens with errors that i have written down.
Last night i somehow managed to get past the installation process. I could choose my username, password, the time, background etc. But when i tried to move on from this the system would freeze up again. After re-starting the pc, it would freeze on the welcome screen.
I decided to try and re-install vista on the hard drive. And i got the same thing as before. It will always freeze at different points during the intstallation process.
My system specs:
XFX 8800GTS 320mb gpu
Intel Q6600 quad core processor
Asus p5n-e sli motherboard
2gb of corsair 800mhz RAM
Silverstone Strider 600w Modular PSU
250gb Western Digital Caviar SATA hard drive
Any help will be greatly appreciated thank you.
