Re: 64 bit Vista installation issue

When you try to install are you booting from the one of the Installation DVDs or instead are you trying to run the SetUp program on them from another running OS?

I've been trying to figure out lately why I am unable to install Vista
Home Premium 64 bit on my system. When I start the installation, I get
to where it finishes the "initializing setup" part, but the installation
screen itself never appears. All I get is a BSOD and I have to restart
my computer. I was just wondering if someone here could tell me if
there are any glaring compatibility issues between my hardware and vista
64 bit. I know the answer to this should be obvious, but it seems like
some part of my hardware is not actually 64 bit. Wouldn't be the worst
thing in the world, but I would like to know since I thought it all was.

2 x Nvidia 7800GT Video Cards

Seagate IDE 250GB
