Vista + DVD Drive Problem .. Again

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, so anyone who helped me with my last Vista problem would know that it wouldn't installing with 4GB RAM.

Basically, I installed using a Slipstreamed Disk I had created using vLite, however I accidentally took one or two things off that I wanted, as so now I have to reinstall again.. but the problem is, my OEM Vista x64 disk won't work anymore..

I take the disk downstairs to the laptop and it runs fine, but i try to use it on this pc (sig rig) where it SHOULD WORK seeing as this is the OEM hardware anyway, and it doesn't autoplay, the disk just spins up to speed then back down again and nothing ever happens. However, other disks work just fine including CD's and other DVD's.. I'm very confused, please help.
Alfie !

Does it read other discs? Sometimes the discs won't autoplay. Just go into My Computer and open it from there.

No it wouldn't autoplay, and if I tried to access it from my computer it would freeze up - but i have since fixed it ! although the fix makes no sense what so ever !

Okay so as i already said I have the 2 computers; desktop (Vista) & laptop (XP) so to test if the OEM Vista disk worked i put it in the XP pc and it did, so after that i tried putting it in the Vista pc again and setup loaded! So I thought GREAT, i'l just restart and format/install, must of been a blip..

So I restarted and it didn't work again.. hmm how strange, so I thought as XP seemed to fix it last time, i would try again.
So I turned my desktop off, put the disk in XP again and saw it work, then turned my desktop on and put the disk in straight away.. lo' and behold the bugger works.

If anyone knows why on earth this is, there is major rep involved haha, this is very strange - but it is installing as we speak .
