Vista 64 bit taking extremely long to install

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I built my CPU today, and everything works fine. Except when I loaded the Vista 64 bit DVD it's taking ages to come up to the first screen of the install.

Then again at Please Wait another few minutes. Then I enter the key again a few minutes. Then it came to the thing where it said it had to choose a disk, and it said that the bios may not be able to boot into this disk make sure the controller is enabled.

Could this be the reason for this sluggishness?

Specs:

Gigabyte P35C
E440 2.0Ghz
4GB 800Mhz ram
Two SATA 320GB Seagate drives
Lite-on 20X DVD-burner on IDE

I had gone and set SATA to native mode in the BIOS, and I tried installing AHCI once, and then disabled it.

So I'm not sure what could be the reason?

Thanks.

I just realized the motherboard is making beep beep noises. Beep Beep. Then a halt then again Beep Beep.

But it does get to the point where it says boot from DVD.

So you know it says Loading Windows files or whatever while loads the files for installation and stuff. It beeped again at that time.

It doesn't beep when it comes into the graphical mode.

What's up with the continous beeping? Is it trying to tell me something?

Try using just two gigs of ram for your install.

Make sure everyhting is at stock.

Are you installing this to a raid setup, if so did you build your raid array first. I know on my abit its like ctrl+I and then you select your HDD's and make your raid setup then install your OS and you have to include the raid drivers at that point.

I found that vista 32 or 64 takes a little while at the intial load screen during install and at a couple of other points (just let it work) but the over all process was far faster tehn XP install.

I just noticed the 4gb of ram. I remember reading somewhere that you have to install vista with 2gb, and then put the other 2gb in afterwards. Try that and let us know.

Over 3GB is the issue. Follow this:

Error message when you try to install Windows Vista on a computer that uses more than 3 GB of RAM: "STOP 0x0000000A"

Ok I've removed the 2GB of ram, only 2 in there now, still taking the same time. It's funny it just sits there, doesn't do anything, the dvd drive isn't spinning or anything. So ...

And is it a cause of concern that it's saying that my SATA drives may not be bootable by the BIOS?

OK did you setup a raid. Did you let it run for a little while I mean the first time I installed it took a couple to several minutes to get past that first install screen.

And please fill in your system specs via the usercp tab, thanks.

I did try to install AHCI, but then I disabled it, basically I went into the BIOS and put it to fail-safe defaults. Don't know if that's causing problems. But should it even goto disk before installing?
