Ok, before i start here is the list of all the parts of my new computer: Motherboard: ASUS P5Q Pro LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard Processor:Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Heatsink:ASUS Triton 81 92mm EBR CPU Cooler RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Graphics Card: HIS Hightech Radeon HD 4870 1GB DVD/CD Drive: SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model SH-S223Q Power Supply: Antec NeoPower 650 Blue 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit for System Builders - OEM Case: Antec Nine Hundred Mouse: Logitech G9 Black 5 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 3200 dpi Gaming Mouse Keyboard: PS/2 Logitech Keyboard The problem i am having is during install, it freezes. Sometimes it freezes on the first grey bar, and the farthest i got was 25% of installation. I've left it overnights to be sure it wasn't just installing slow. What could be the problem? I've already looked on the webs for some help, but most of the stuff that was said to do, namely bios changes, was already automatically set to what was recommended....I am stumped, not sure what to do to resolve this issue. On a sidenote: there were some tiny swirl type scratch marks on my Vista Disk, could that be the problem!? I mean, they were pretty tiny enough to maybe pass but they are noticeable..
