    System Specs:

    Q6600 - Non-OC'd

    DDR800 - Mushkin Memory - 4GB

    ABit IP35 (Non pro / Non -E) ICH9R

    Striped Raid Array with 2x640GB WD drives. (2 partitions - XP - 240GB, Vista 900GB+)

    8800 GT MSI

    1x250 GB harddrive

    1x500 GB harddrive

    No other peripherals attached except USB mouse & PS2 Keyboard

    Everytime I attempt to install, Vista sees my array just fine, however when trying to 'Completing Installation' It just hangs there for about 20 min, then goes to a BSOD and reboots. After the reboot, my array is out of sync and I basically have to delete my array and restart. (luckily I have a ghost image of my XP partition)

    I've tried with detaching the other 2 drives and booting with 64 Bit drivers off of a flash drive, same result either way.

    Any suggestions? I'm already beyond frustrated.

    Try installing with less than 4GB of memory installed. Sometimes, that works.
