comment If USB is not listed in BIOS as a boot option, does that mean the machine can't boot from USB?
I had the same problem. I went into BIOS, Boot tab, then enabled Launch CSM...F10 to save and exit, hit Esc on restart and I get that menu where I was able to select USB to boot from. Thanks for the help guys!

comment How do I hit the CTRL key without straining my pinky?
@sandos--after remapping caps lock as your third control key, you then use that as you would when you need to use the control key (but now it's easier on your pinky). Like bahamat, I seldom use caps lock. I sit on the shift key while I type in the letters. Try it yourself and see the difference.

comment Installing Windows: error code 0x80070017
You are right. This one DVD took half an hour to get to that part where it says it is expanding the files, then gives me an error message. Trying out a different dvd, everything was installed and up and running in ten minutes. @avirk-- I'll do that too. Thanks for your help guys!

comment No CD--how do I reinstall windows vista if I can't boot into vista?
You know what, the new motherboard needs to get updated anyway. I'll try that path and see what happens. Acer installed the vista back up copy on the pc's drive d. If the bios update doesn't fix the problem, I'll scout internet auctions for a vista dvd.

comment No CD--how do I reinstall windows vista if I can't boot into vista?
I am assuming that the IRQL error had something to do with the fact that the vista version was 32-bit, yet my RAM had more than 3Gb. I want to reinstall vista as 64-bit version thinking that might solve the problem. I need vista for work, and linux for everything else. Thanks!

@stephanie-- thanks for the information. Put that in as your answer and I'll choose that as best.

It's inconclusive then. I guess I am going to have to swap out that psu to get that ruled out. Thanks!
