    I'm trying to install a 'clean' installation of vista
    I already have vista on my computer as my operating system but I have been experiencing problems.
    I'm booting from the vista disc, and everything seems to be working correctly until after the first start up. Once I get to the screen where it says 'completing installation', suddenly it just stops working. It's not really frozen, but it will not continue the installation. I've tried installing it around five times and this has happened every time.
    Any suggestions on how to fix this?
    :confused:

    Elaborate a bit please: Do you have Vista already installed and you are trying to install another copy over the existing one? A clean install to me means that you have removed the previous installation of Vista.
