Okay, this is what I did. I went into my BIOS and noticed something under
Power Management I believe it was. If anyone has something called
"Cool'n"quiet" DISABLE it. I disabled it and just like that, Vista installed
like a champ and I'm running on it now. The two hours of technical support
did not do anything and said it was my media that was the culprit. pfffft.
Hopefully this fixes the problem for most people!
