I Had The Exact Same Problems. Using Win Xp Pro 32 Bit And Tried To Install
Vista Home !!!!
Ya Figure He Makes Millions Of Dollars A Day And This Is The Sh** We Get.
For Some Retarded Reason VISTA Cannot Figure Out What "BOOT FROM CD/DVD"
I Finally Had To Unplug 6 Hard Drives And 3 DvdRoms And Make Vista Have Only
Two Options For Boot (Hard Drive Or Dvd Rom)
It Kept Booting From HDD >EVEN THOUGH I SELECTED CD/DVD !<
I HAd "Ntldr Missing" Error + "Hal.dll Corrupt " And About 5 Other Messages
Saying There Was An Error. Patience And Time.
You Have To Keep Trying To Get The Stupid Software To Boot From The Disk !
The Errors Are Because It Isn't Booting From The Disk. NOTHING IS CORRUPT OR
MISSING. Vista Is Corrupt.
You Must : Have All The Latest Updates Installed + Run The Vista Advisory
EVEN If You Know Your Pc Is Compatible.
And When it Boots It Will Show You A Blue "Vista " Curtain Type Wallpaper
The Crap Is........It Seems Like Its Frozen But Appears To Be Loading A File
In The Background, Then After A Few Minutes It Will Begin Asking You What You
Want To Install.
Good Luck Bro, Its A Pain In The Arse, But I Love The 3D Icons.
