    I've got vista64 and it installed just fine with sp1 slipstreamed. Slipstream your disk and see if that doesn't help. NOTE that you will need a DVD-9 to burn to, as it's over 4.7gigs.

    I have 4GBs of ram, never had a problem. Running Vista Ultimate. The only problem I knew of was that Vista doesn't recognize over 3Gbs but never heard of the blue screen of death errors.

    The ram prob is fixed and everything else is rock solid..if your having update issues because most people have..its' most likely a security issue with your firewall software like kapersky.I need more info though whats the code it gives you when you try to run update?what fireall or antivirus is installed?What update are you talking about?

    Youve prob tried all these but here you go anyway.


    You even removed it and reinstalled it manually which takes out the hotfix which causes problems?

    Or this To resolve Windows Update error 8000FFFF, try the following steps:

    1) Launch REGEDIT

    2) Go into HKLM\COMPONENTS, and check if these three values exist under the COMPONENTS key:

    PendingXmldentifier
    NextQueueEntryIndex
    AdvancedInstallersNeedResolving

    3) Providing they do exist, back up the Components key, then delete the three above values.
    4) Restart the computer, and Windows Update should now be working fine.

    I'll keep trying for you,like I said before I had the same problem and none of these things worked and it was my dam antivirus software..anyway good luck man,I know how frustrating these things are .I'm curious of how you fix it if you do so post it here.

    I didnt read everyones replies but, turn on Remap Memory Feautre in BIOS to see all 4 gigs of memory. And of course you need 64 bit opereating system to use 4gigs or more of ram, otherwise it sees around 3.2gigs.

    The reason you only had 3.4gb availible with a 32bit OS is because of the hardware in your machine is reserving that addressable memory space. The only windows 32bit OS that doesnt have this issue is Windows Server Enterprise or Datacenter edition..

    I have 6 gigs of ram with windows vista 32-bit and it reads all 6 gigs without a problem... are all the memory sticks all the same speed? if they aren't then you can run into a problem

    Vista 32 bit simply cannot allocate more than 4 gigs of ram, including video ram. It may see that it's there, but it won't be able to use it.

    As for mismatched ram, it can cause issues, especially if you are overclocking. Try to use matched ram.

    A 32bit OS will not utilize more then 4GB of memory. At most you'll usually see around the 3GB range because, as mentioned above, address spaces are allocated for other hardware components.

    The blue screen during installation effected earlier releases (32 and 64 bit) of the Vista installation DVD's. You needed to remove memory until you were left with less then 3GB to complete the installation. I know this because I have one of the earlier releases and one of the later. The earlier will blue screen unless I take out memory, the other will install with 8GB no problems same box, same hardware.

    Not a mobo issue, not hardware related, just shitty, shitty, shitty ass M$ for you.
