When vista "boots for the first time", i get a blue screen of death. the computer quickly reboots, making it impossible to see what the error is. When I go to "repair my computer" I get error details mentionning "externalmedia". i need to know a couple of things.. one being, how do i get the computer to not reboot on failure.. The install from the get go was ridiculously slow. I'm running an ASUS P4CP800-E Deluxe board, p4 3.2c, 1gb ram, ati 1600 pro vid. It takes literally 4 minutes for the "Pick a Language" screen to come up. It then takes another 4 minutes to click next and then "install now". Another 4 minutes for the serial number input screen. It's just ridiculous. The dvd drive makes a ticking noise during the 4 minutes, and then speeds up and lights go on, and the thing works.. so why the delay? The dvd is on a secondary channel, its an LG 4x... never had a problem with it. I ran all the pre-install "are you ready for vista" tools, and passed all with flying colours. So after spending 300 bucks, i expect this thing to work the first time i put it in. I've never had a problem with any other windows operating system (except for ME). Please help, I know that it's early on, but I've already found a similar post, on another site... the guy was using an ASUS board as well. I checked ASUS's website, there hasnt been a bios update since 2005...nothing new available.
