What is Vista gamer edition? I have never heard of that before. If you have xp x64 pro installed I don't see why x64 vista wouldn't install. Check your hardware and see if there are an incompatibilities with vista especially that gamer option or whatever it is called. Also make sure you are doing a clean install not an upgrade. X64 xp Pro had compatibility issues in the past and if the drivers aren't being changed it may cause an install issue.

Check back of what this Gamer edition of Vista is. That may be the reason in itself.
