Weird Vista Install Problem - Help!


OSNN Addict
18 Feb 2004
I have tried to install Vista (clean install on blank HD) but after it is done installing and loads up the Welcome screen for the first time the prompt to create an account and enter a Username and Password appears but then quickly disappears.

Due to this, I am unable to create an account because when I restart Vista, the prompt for creating a User account never appears again. I try to logon as Administrator with the password field left blank but it says the account has been disabled.

What can I do and why is it doing this? :dead:

I can't even use Vista due to this weird problem as I can never reach the desktop :(
I found out the problem!

Looks like the Promise TX 100 IDE PCI card was causing this problem. I unplugged it, installed Vista then re-insert the card and all is fine!
Bizarre problem, its also one of the reasons I'm waiting for SP1 until I upgrade.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
