Hey guys, I have had this problem ever since I dissarmed my computer (took out the motherboard, graphics card, and EVERYTHING). It's a problem that every time I apply a crack for Vista, the computer restarts itself (and that's fine, because that is supposed to happen), but after it restarts, windows won't boot up. It tries, but a blue screen appears for like half a second and then it restarts, so I can't even read the error message. Before I took out the pieces of my computer and put them together again, I could always that freaking crack to activate Vista, but now, I have the problem I mentioned above. I have tried a myriad of cracks (most of the activators that come on Amit's pack), and all of them cause me the same problem. I have no idea what could be causing this, but I believe I touched something in the BIOS when I was cleaning the computer parts, but I am not sure. Also, I burned my floppy lector, but I don't think that matters. If you are going to help me, please bare with me and tell me the basics. I know a lot about computers, but my knowledge with hardware and the BIOS itself is quite limit, so you may need to tell me how to check my BIOS, how to flash it if necessary, and such. Any help will be greatly appreciated. --- That's a post I made on another site a while ago. I now know that the BSOD says the following: And that BSOD is annoying. I tried many Vista cracks with the same result, but then I found an interesting workaround: I install the crack (VistaLoader 2.1.2), and since it gives me that error, I managed to use this tool burned in a CD to load Vista. But it's annoying workaround, because I have to boot the disc before the OS. Is there something I could do get over this? While I can boot Vista, the method is annoying.
