I've been trying to install Vista since the first RC and have had no\nluck at all. I have narrowed it down to the sata drive/controller on my\ncomputer.\n\nEverytime I try to install Vista I get a Machine_Check_Exception bsod.\nWhen I try to install Vista from a bootable cd, it does it's initial\nload of the setup files and crashes once it gets to the splash screen.\nIt crashes the same place everytime. I systematically disconnected\ndevices till I found the root of the problem. If I disconnect my sata\ndrive Vista cruises on through with the install.\n\nI really need my Sata drive as it is my fastest drive and has the most\namount of HD space. Has anybody else had problems with this motherboard\nand Vista?\n\nMy System Specs:\n\nAMD 3700+ 64bit, 2GB Ram, 2 dvd drives, 3 HD(1 SATA and 2 PATA), ATI\nX800XL AGP Video Card, Soundblaster Audigy 2. Nothing is OC'd.
