    I've bought Vista from MS - Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows Vista - Ultimate 32 bit SP 1 and I'm trying to install it on my new machine - old mobo is stuffed and I do believe that is the Retail Version of Vista.

    When DVD starts, goes to some point showing first black screen with Windows sign of running and after that I see only black, white and colorful screens changing in the loop.


    Tried few options, still the same - suspecting video part of CPU Intel i53470.

    However I was able to install Win 7 without any problems at all. But I don't have a key for it!

    So I'm trying to get some help - how to install my Vista.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Typing right now on Win7 and machine is running like a dream....

    HELP!

    TIA

    The IntelĀ® HD Graphics 4000/2500 chipsets do not support Windows Vista. Why don't you go for windows 7 sp1

    I paid for it! :) And I like it! Man, I paid $300 and in 3 years I had maybe 2 crashes.

    If I will put video card, that will do the trick? That should disable Intel and I could use card.

    It will work?

    :D

    Yeh install another graphics card and then go into the bios and disable the on-board integrated video hard - its just you are using new hardware with very old os - personally i would go for windows 7 now. and keep/use the hp graphics card.. but that's your decision.

    Will try DAZ loader for some time - Rearm is not liked by Kaspersky for some reason.

    Later on Win 7 is a must. I have also Win 8 Pro but... no thanks...

    you're better off with Win7 in the long run. extended support for Vista will end in April 2017 while support for Win7 will end in early 2020.
