Vista installation troubles

  stannerz 14:10 23 Sep 2007

I am a bit of a novice when it comes to building PC's and have just put together the following:
abit il90mv mb
2 x 512mb ram
intel dual core processor
400gb samsung hard drive
sony nec dvd writer.
tv card haupagge win nova t500
antec fusion case
I am connecting the pc to my sony tv via the hdmi connector on both mother board and tv.
I have had an error message on first power up "failed to boot" so I put the vista disc in the dvd drive and pressed enter.
The initial message was loading files, and a white bar fills across the screen, then the Microsoft scanner comes across the screen as though its loading, I then get a white and blue line across the centre of the screen and then the hard disc stops and the dvd stops???

Just wondered if anyone had experienced this and what I can do to resolve.
