im tryin to format an reinstall a friends vista pc, altho when i choose the dvd drive it loads the files, goes to the windows logo flashes up the mouse cursor then jus black screens an i get nothing at all. doesnt matter what i use, it still does the same thing, ive even tried an XP disc but same thing. ive low leveled the drive so theres no O/S on the drive now an still same thing, ive no idea whats causin it. Its an intel core 2 quad 2.4Ghz, all the drives are SATA, (no IDE connector on mobo) any suggestions? Edit: Ive tried flashing the bios according to the way foxconn say to do it, an the bios doesnt support the AFUDOS flashing utility, so tried the awdflash way which works but then i get an error message saying "the program files part number does not match your system!" which to me would indicate that the existing bios is wrong or the label on the mobo is wrong.
