Using "winsat formal" in the Command Prompt, I get the following error in bold:

What would cause this kind of error? FYI, I'm on an nForce 680i SLI chipset motherboard with a GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) video card. Would nForce drivers cause the above perhaps?

Finally found out what was causing this! Turns out it was a bug in MacDrive 7. It pestered me to check for updates today after not checking for a while, and, reading release notes, it turns out that version 7.2.1 caused the Windows Experience Index to fail only in Vista 64. It apparently was fixed in a subsequent update. After updating MacDrive, I ran the WEI and it worked flawlessly.
