Default Vista Installation Boot Disk Error - 12-27-2008, 05:29 PM

I have just purchased a Mini 9 with a 16 GB HD running XP. I just upgraded it to a 64 GB SSD and 2 GB of memory and all is working fine.
I am attaempting to install Vista Home Basic SP1 with a USB disk drive using a genuine Windows disc but part way through the installation I get a boot disk error which wont allow installation to continue?

Can anyone help me out with this one please?

Does your BIOS recognize the 64 gigs

Does your USB DVD drive allow for a separate power cable? If so, use it. Also, make sure the Mini is on AC power.
