The normal installation procedure would call for you to set your DVD as the
1st Boot device in the BIOS.
Insert the Vista DVD and restart the system....watch for the message "push
any key to start from DVD"
do so and the Vista installation screen should appear.
Be aware that Vista 64 needs to be clean installed.....it cannot upgrade a
32 bit installation...it can and will wipe it and then
Be sure to find 64 bit drivers for all of the hardware on your system.
If you find a posting or message from me offensive,inappropriate
or disruptive,please ignore it.
If you dont know how to ignore a posting complain
to me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate :-)
