I get past the press any key to boot from CD or DVD then the loading Vista
files screen and it gets to a screen that looks like where the setup would
begin, I then see my mouse pointer but but nothing loads. Does anyone have
any suggetions?

Well, there is no upgrade path from a 32-bit operating system
to a 64-bit operating system. If you wish to install the 64-bit
version of Windows Vista, you must perform a "clean install".

When you insert a Windows Vista 64-bit DVD within a 32-bit
operating system, the operation is unsuccessful:

Installation choices for 64-bit consumer versions of Windows Vista:
