Vista X64 System builder(cannot Install on new homebuilt computer)

Posted: 01-23-2009, 09:10 PM

hi, I have just built my first computer. My whole family is a mac famil
but i have always found vista easy to use on my friends computers.
bought Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit for Syste
Builders - OEM from newegg. Now when i boot from The disc it say
\"Loading windows file....\" and once it is done with that an erro
appears saying

\"Windows failed to start. a Recent hardware or software change migh
be the cause, to fix this problem.....\

It gives me ways to fix it but all of them require some OS to be on th
computer and i have none.

It also says

File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.ex

Status: 0xc000009

Info: The selected Entry could not be loaded because the application i
missing or corrupt

I have no i idea what is wrong. i have gone in BIOS to reset m
settings but nothing changes. I have cleaned the disc but no help there

I have really no idea what is going on so if anyone has any suggestion
please do tell Thank

Try installing with only 2GB of memory with the memory set to a slower speed
in the BIOS.
If it installs then undo the above changes one at a time.

Wow! thank you so much. I took out 1 stick of ram. changed the bio
speed from 1066 to 800. my Bios also has a lot of overclocking option
and my memory was set to turbo speed. so i changed that to standard.

My first try windows installation appeared. Though it is taking alon
time it is working thanks again

Ye... I have built a few comp myself.. Definitely if you got that erro
(on a harddisk which is fresh) then it is hardware error and you ca
almost bet if something is wrong with a new build it is near to ALWAY
an initial RAM problem, BIOS settings or a combo of both

PS. After you have installed Windows... you should be able to put bac
the other mem stick and also adjust the mem bus speed... However .
avoid the whole turbo ****e... basically read up a bit on the DDR2RA
tech (which I assume you are using) , and adjust your mem setting
custom (and do a few changes at a time) to see what happens wit
windows. But avoid the whole.. set to turbo level style options...
MOBO fried all my buses due to that once , including the mouse an
harddisks
