    Cannot reinstall Vista in Dell Inspiron 1720

    Hello,

    I installed a new HD in a Dell Inspiron 1720 running at 2.2Ghz with a Intel Centrino duo. I tried reinstalling the Operating System (Original Reinstallation DVD Windows Vista Home Premium 32BIT) DVD that came with the computer but the three times I have tried to install it stops at the "Completing Installation" part of it. It goes to about 80% of the installation bar at the bottom of the screen and then stops. I left it running overnight at that point, thinking that it would eventually finish but the screen went black at some point during the night. I have partitioned the disk in an attempt to see if that did it but nothing changed.
    Any ideas?

    got it.

    Try changing your Sata operations from ACHI to ATA ... Simple as that.
