Blue screen while installing Vista

Specs: Windows XP, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.40 GHz /1.00 Go RAM

I need help to know how to install copied windows vista ultimate x84 on my 2002 compaq presario.

Configuration right now:

Compaq presario 6350CA
Windows XP Home Edition
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40Ghz
1.00 Go of RAM
Graphic card: ATI Radeon X1600 Pro 512 MB RAM
Sound card: Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty
Wi-Fi card: D-Link Rangebooster N
Hard drive: 2 hard drive 250 Go Western Digital
DVD RW drive Sony

So, that's my all configuration on my system. I want to install windows vista ultimate on my computer. Can you tell me how to do it step by step please? I'm saying you that because I tried to do it yesterday about 5 times and my computer didn't want to finish the installation. So, I downloaded the windows vista ultimate with the Service Pack 1 in emule and I burned this ISO Image on my DVD+RW with the nero 9. After that, I put the DVD+RW on my computer and restarted my computer. So, my computer read the DVD+RW first and it's says (the windows is loading files). So, it works and the sreen appears that you need to choose your language and prees next. After, it says click to install. And, I don't insert a product key and press next. It ask me what version you want to install and to accept the licence. I want to put vista on my first hard drive that I erase the partition and create a new partition. After finishing the configuration, the installation begin. So, during the installation, everything is fine and no error appear. After the installation, the first restart came up. Everything is fine again. To the end of the installation, the blue screen appears and says: (The problem has detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage on your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow this steps - the device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. - STOP: 0x000000EA (0x845F7200, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)). So, that's the error message who came up every time I start my computer. So, it doesn't finish the installation because this error appear.

The question I would like to ask you is: Do you know how to solve this problem and how to install correctly the windows vista? Tell me step by step.

Please, help me to doing this.

Thank you very much for helping me.

Well for one thing, you installed a "pirated" version of Vista (because you downloaded it). These versions are supposedly illegal to distribute, and usually causes problems if someone trys to install them.

I think your problem is with the file "royal.sys." I believe that it's located in the C:\Windows\system32\drivers\ folder. This file is part of Microsoft's anti-piracy technology. Those who created this hacked version of Vista probably hacked this file, but messed the file up in doing so (either that, or it's working correctly). Deleting this file will allow you to get into Windows, but you must activate your installation of Vista within 30 days or you won't be able to boot. The problem is, you WON'T be able to activate Windows because your copy of Windows will have already been activated by someone else that has a legal copy of Vista that has the same product ID as the one you downloaded.

So unless you have another computer to use, it will involve alot just to delete that file. If you have another PC, just install the hard drive in that PC and delete royal.sys. If you don't have another computer, then you'll need to do it with a BartPE CD. It won't be worth all the effort though because like I said above, you will only be able to use it for 30 days. You could've avoided this by buying Vista from the store.

There are Vista activators out there that work, and some hacked copies of Vista don't need activated. Check
