    Hi lkiamd,


    Thank you for the post.


    Currently, I suggest backing up your important files and unplugging all unnecessary devices, such as sound card, network card and printer. Then boot from the Windows Vista disk, format the drive and reinstall Windows Vista.


    Can Windows Vista be installed now?


    If the issue persists, please access the following site and run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to check if there is any incompatible product existing on your system. If so, please remove it.




    Hope it helps.


    Best regards,
