I'm presuming that the Vista BSOD's are similar to the XP one's - if that's the case, here's a link: http://aumha.org/win5/kbestop.php#0x221
Indicates driver problems, system file problems, disk corruption problems (such as a damaged pagefile), or faulty memory hardware.
As such, I'd run chkdsk, recreate your pagefile, run MemTest86, and then start looking at your drivers.
A look at the Event Viewer may enable you to associate a file name with it. Or, a search of your hard drive for .dmp and .mdmp files may lead to more information. If you find the .dmp/.mdmp files - here's a link on how to analyze them (all of this works in XP - I haven't tried it in Vista): http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=35246
EDIT: Oops! I didn't notice the ntdll.dll file, nor the comment about XP working. That probably rules out the hardware stuff. I'd still run chkdsk on the volume that you're installing Vista to and then would start with your drivers.
