So it is done... Q6600 BFG 680i LT SLi 2x2GB OCZ Gold Edition BFG 8800GT 512MB WD 150GB Raptor 20x Dual Layer SATA MadDog DVDROM Antec TruPower 650w Antec 900 case The part I hate... Holy shit it works!!! Sitting pretty... The beast, and it's little brother... So I got it all together, it installed Vista 64 seemingly no problems, went to reboot to complete installation, and it looped, boot into Vista, reboot computer, boot into Vista, reboot computer....maddening. So after talking to BFG, we decided to reflash my BIOS, now to track down a....floppy. Get the BIOS reflash, same thing, try different SATA connections, reinstall Vista, nothing. One guy finally ask how much memory I have installed, I tell em 4 GB, he says try it with only 2, then update Vista, and install the other 2. Booyah. Booted right into Vista, finished install, and everything is smokin'
