Are you completely wiping out the drive first? I prefer a program called gdisk, which is part of Symantec Ghost, to clear all partitions, AND clear the MBR, which might be the problem you are facing.

I am going to do your idea and use clonezilla as its free and the others not I think.

I got vista working on it BTW.

Tried using external floppy drive for sata controllers on boot but still BSOD but with a different code this time i.e:

0xF78D2524 for the second section of it.

Do you think clonezilla can do this and if so how please?
