System will not boot..period!
I installed Vista 64 Ultimate last night (not easily) but it finally went
through the process of install holding up at 90%...screen going black (no
curser) then the blue screen error of "this system has recovered from a
serious error blah blah.." then without touching anything Vista appears. It
starts, set my name, computer name, etc. So I continue and explore. Aero is
cool, it sees my sata drives, memory and all. I connect to Internet and
Vista tells me I have updates to install. I download and install and it tells
me I must restart. As I go to restart itjust dies. Black screen. Power still
on but nothing happening. I tried every which way to reboot with no luck. I
cannot get to safe mode, bios, anything. There is no signal. Power is on but
no one home.
I am dead in the water. I cannot get to a product ID to contact support (it
is different than the product key-which is 25 digits.)
I am lost. I don't know what to do next.
Thanks in advance for any support.

Clean install from XP64 Professional to Vista 64 Ultimate
Dual dual-core AMD Opteron 285 processors
Supermicro H8DCE mobo
4 G RAM
Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX
WD Raptor 1500 150g hard drive.

from your message you said you cannot get into the bios are you getting a post screen from the computer if not you probably should start with the power supply may have blown the supply if that does not work and you still get no post it is probably a bad cpu ( vista has many features that will tax both your powersupply and cpu my bet is a bad rail on the power supply

Had a similar problem recently. Power but computer would not boot. I wasn't using Vista but this problem seems to be hardware or something preventing a boot. My problem was a corrupted BIOS. Solved by flashing the BIOS from a bootable disk. Read your MoBo manual to see how it's done. This might not be your your problem but it's something to consider ...
