I just put together a new system and XP installed without issues. I did created a partition for Vista during the XP installation. When I reboot the system with the Vista disk in, I see the loading bar stating "Windows is loading file" and that completes without any issues. Instead of continuing the Vista installation, the pc reboots back to XP. If I hit a key to boot from CD when I get the chance, it starts the loading bar again.
This is my first attempt at installation Vista. I have seen a lot of threads where the loading bar freezes or takes forever to complete, but this isn't my issue. It runs through the loading bar in about a minute, it just doesn't get past this point.
According to the site where I bought the memory and the Corsair site, the memory should be 1.9V, but the memory label states 1.8V. I thought this might be an issue at first, but XP didn't have any issues at all.
