Vista won't install


Recommended Posts


I'm trying to install vista basic on an Acer 5315 in which I've just fitted a brand new hdd. The install goes like this...

"Press any key to boot from cd" <enter>

"Windows is loading files..."

"Microsoft Corporation" (with moving dots)

Blue / Green themed screen.


The install never goes beyond the blue/green Vista screen. I saw on some other sites that you should change the SATA drive from AHCP to IDE mode in the BIOS which I did, but no change.

Btw, Intel Celeraon 540 cpu, 1gb of RAM and new drive is 250gb.

Any idea what's up and how I get Vista basic to install?
