    Installing Windows Vista on Alienware 17 stuck on boot screen, HDD led brinks every seconds.

    I want to install Windows Vista on my Alienware 17, with UEFI boot. The laptop firmware is GOP. I do everythings in this thread but it stuck on boot screen, HDD led brinks every seconds. In safe mode, it stuck at crcdisk.sys, HDD led brinks every seconds.

    USB 3.0 is working during boot. I installed drivers using vLite, not DISM.
