Just for the record...Windows Vista Sucks.....Anyway I had installed XP using a slipstream with the Intel Matrix Storage driver on it and cleared the Vista Installation that came with my computer. After doing this i found that a lot of the drivers didnt work. So i tried reinstalling Vista and it constantly hangs on "Completing Installation". Any Ideas? I dont have a floppy so i will need to slipstream if i have to. :huh: :huh:

Just for the record . . . Vista doesn't suck, rather it's the lack of compatible programs and drivers that does. As for your issue, the installation isn't completing because either something is wrong with the installation media, or something is wrong with the hardware. Are your Intel Matrix Storage drivers Vista compatible, and did you install them during the Vista installation?

Theres nothing wrong with the hardware cause its a new computer....and i dont think theres anything wrong with the media cause its the reinstallation CD that came with the computer. I really just dont know what to do. The driver i used , i used when i installed XP but now i want to reinstall vista but i tried slipstreaming the intel matrix storage driver that goes to vista into the cd and it still didnt work. Any ideas?

"Theres nothing wrong with the hardware cause its a new computer" - don't count on it, I've seen plenty of system dead out of the box.
As for the installation media, it only takes one spec of dust or one little scratch to render an essential file inaccessible.

That being said, I'd suspect your drivers since you state that it's the same driver that you used with XP. Go to Intel and get the appropriate Vista driver to support this.
