    Vista is still in the beta process. You may not be able to install it. I myelf also have a 64bit CPU and am unable to install Vista. It just freezes up on my during the installation process every time.

    Well, maybe the quality is, but it was released on 30th November.

    The build 5308, however, is very bad compared to the latest builds.

    I was not even able to install the RC1 version myself. It simply froze during the installation process. There are so many different variations of hardware out there, and microsoft is doing their best (I hope) to ensure that vista will work with most configurations, but it'll take time for them to iron the bugs out.

    Do a google for your motherboard model number and vista and see of others are having the same problems as you, and if there is a work-around.

    My motherboard (A8N-SLI) is known to have some problems with vista. Many are able to get around it by disabling most of the onboard features. Didn't work for me however. Maybe by the official release I'll be set (fingers crossed).
