You're always better doing a clean install anyway. Boot the machine from the DVD and let it run. Any problems, come back to us.

Try this.

load from your bootable Windows Vista CD and choose to restore. Tnen choose 'other options' and go to console. Then go to <WINDOWS>\System32\Drivers\ and delete sptd.sys. Now restart. Vista will load fine after it and continue installation.
