It's NFTS, but I'm looking at a guide that says it should be fat32 so I will try that.

the tool extracts the files from iso to usb. makes a ntfs partition as well. Marks it active as far as I know.
Since ntfs partition is there... please check if it is active. Does it have a drive letter attached as well? if so which one?

only thing that fails... bootsector but I can tell you how to write it manually!

Ok. I got to a screen that said loading files, then it said "starting windows" But now there is a blue screen that says "*** STOP: 0x0000005c ...... followed by a bunch more 0's and x's with a few random letters to piss me off....."

I think I'm close to giving up.

Yes, it's a 32 bit vista disc, but I have downloaded 64 bit home version. And sorry, I had chose fat32 instead of NTFS. I will try NTFS now.
