Be patient, bozo. This ain't the drive-up window at McDonald's.
It's only been six hours or so since you first posted.

Hi,

Boot with the Vista disk and begin the install. At the point where you
choose the install location, delete all existing volumes. Create a new one
from the resulting free space, then format and proceed with the
installation. It's that simple.

Look around that pitiful "forum", bigCROCK. MOST EVERYONE is a
"guest"!!!

That board sucks/leaches 90% (or more) of its messages from Microsoft
servers to make itself look busier than it really is.

Everyone using those and other servers show up as "guests".

So... there's no big deal to being a "registered" user.
