Hello Chewyboy,

Since you have Windows 7 installed, you might consider using Windows Virtual PC instead to create a Vista virtual machine in. IMO, it works mubh better.

Hope this helps,

Are you pressing the key to boot from the CD/DVD (ISO) in the virtual machine to start setup?

It could also be a damaged ISO. Seems you are using a cracked AiO Multilingual Vista ISO, you might get better results using original and valid Vista install media.
