    Problem isntalling vista, building new PC

    Hey

    I'm building a pc but using some old parts. It's my first time but I think I've successfully put all the parts together. I am trying to install vista, on my old IDE hard drive that used to have XP on it. but when i boot from the cd i get the message:

    "The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum"

    These are the new parts I am using

    mobo: abit ip35 pro
    cpu: q6600
    Ram: 4gig 6400

    These are the old parts I'm using
    HDD: 1xIDE 1x SATA
    cd-drive: 1x liteon 52x

    Could anyone help me and tell me whats wrong?

    Also I have both my IDE cd drive and IDE hard drive one the same cable, since there is only 1 IDE output from the mobo. Is this allowed?

    This is allowed but you need to have them set up to master (end of the cable) and slave (middle of the cable) respectively.
    To do this you might have to take your dvd drive & hard drive out. look around the device and see if there is any information on the pin set up for each one. Its usually printed either just above the pins where the specific jumpers are placed at the back of the device, or on a sticker/printed into the metal on the top.

    Examples:
    printed on the back

    Printed on the top
