Clean x64 installation freezes at first reboot.

I tried installing Vista x64 several times with 3 different imiges. The
install dvd guides me through the installation process and completes
the: Copying Files, Expanding Files, Updating, Completing Install. After
the Completing Install finishes the restart prompt pops up and the rig
reboots. At this point it begins to boot then hangs at black screen with
flashing cursor (before windows load bar at bottom). The installation is
being done on a bare bones rig (only whats necessary). Also Vista x86
installs and works perfect on same rig. Any ideas would be welcome.
Thanks in advance...

Mobo: Intel DG33BU
CPU: Intel E6550 stock speed
Ram: 4 Gigs Adata
HDD: Seagate Barracuda (SATA/300)

You might try removing 2G of memory installing and then putting the 2 back
in. Check for threads about installations failing with 4GB.

Responding from PM.

Kamo,

Since you have the latest BIOS and your motherboard and CPU supports 64
bit Vista, I'm not sure.

'Download Search Results'
(http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filt...ng%20Sys tems)


Take a look at this link on installing your hard drive with BIOS setup
instructions. Perhaps, something is not set correctly.

'Seagate Technology - Barracuda 7200.9 SATA 300-GB Hard Drive'
(http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.js...eqPage=Support)


Sometimes it may wait a bit (a few minutes) on that blank screen.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
