Yeah, i had exactly the same thing!!
But before I tried to install build 5270 I was running Windows XP Home Edition, and in the beginning of the installation they say that It don't support running on XP Home Edition or something, I can't really remember... But then I installed XP Pro Edition and updated it to Vista Build 5270,, now the installations goes past the boot screen!! you van also try to install Build 5260 or later and then try to upgrade!

Any questions or tips please mail me : sonny.meijer@gmail.com

no i didn't. i'm just installing Vista on Windows XP Pro...
My specs are:

P4 3,0GHz
1024 MB DDR
120 GB
256MB GeForce FX5600

But the strange thing is I cant boot from my Vista DVD ! and i burned it as a Bootable DVD Disc... ! so I cant install it on a formated hard drive, unless I install it on another partition..

I have the same problem - and I am on a desktop!

I try to install from my existing Windows XP OS, then after it restarts - just the black screen. When I try safe mode - it keeps loading different drivers - then after loading disk.sys - it just freezes - no more activity.

I also noticed that whenever the computer hangs, the hard disk is constantly chattering and the hard disk LED on the CPU is glowing all the time.
