I bought a new motherboard yesterday (Abit x78) ans have been dual booting in the past, with vista home x64 and premium x86. Anyway, when i installed my new motherboard i put my premium disc in and decided to format all my old drives and start afresh. So it was installing like it should and i could boot up into it but when i shut it down i cannot boot back up into it, it says that its booting it into vista via the dual boot screen, and it just stops there and nothing happens. What should i do?
^^^^IM guessing its all just a BIOS boot reorder...apparently it installs the bootloader on the secondary drive....but the PC boots the original bootloader on the old...switch the boot order presto whammO > no need for the boot ini edit...what a headache >either way install disc should "repair" the bootloader IF=corrupt/damaged
The chance is that your ram is preventing a successfull install, remove all but one ram module, reformat and try to install again. If you can get into Windows successfully you can always add the other modules afterwards.
