Hi, Me Too.
Two obvious questions:
1. What does the BSOD say?
2. Why not just boot from the DVD to run Setup?
Yes, I read, "I'm being forced to try alternate methods considering vista
doesn't agree with my vista certified n650sli-ds4 gigabyte board." But I
can't guess at what that means. And I never heard of the "flat install
method". Vista Ultimate x64 installed without complaints onto my EPoX
MF570SLI board with AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core processor and 4 SATA hard
drives and has been running fine on it since December.
