Vista Ultimate x64 and black screen and freeze on install?
Hi,

I am running the following rig and I want to install vista on it, I have got
the disc and whenever I try to install any version of vista I get the copying
files percentage bar then the restart then a dimmed percentage bar and
microsoft wording and the system hangs. Can anyone clarify why this is?

Asus P5WDH - Deluxe Mobo
E6700 2.63 Ghz Core 2 Duo Processor
2 Gb Corsair DDR 1000Mhz Ram
1Gb XFX Dual SLi Compatible Graphix Card
Soundblaster Audigy 2 Soundcard
Onboard Wireless
2 x DVD +-RW and CDRW Drives
Raid 0 x 2 200Gb Maxtor Diamond Max 10 drives

Note: I have tried disabling the Raid Drives prior to posting to no avail.

Can anyone help me at all?

not uncommon for extra devices to cause problems during install.
try disabling in the bios the cd/dvd not used for install.
while there also disable any not needed usb, serial and parallel ports.
also turn off any over clocking.
