    I received a copy of Vista Business from the Power Together program today, and am having some trouble installing. I get through all of the required input (license key, language, etc.) and it begins installing, but my problem is when it reboots. When I try to boot from the hard drive, it doesn't go anywhere, it gets stuck on the black screen. If I try to boot from the CD, it starts all over again, as I expected. I'm fairly sure that it is supposed to boot from the hard drive to continue installation. but I am unable to. Any help?

    Perhaps some information about your system would help. If the disk is connected to a RAID or other 3rd party controller, even a MB embedded one, you may need to load the drivers early in the install for it to be able to boot from the hard disk. That is likely the issue, but we won't know without any data on the system you're using.
