Error message when you try to install Windows Vista on a computer that uses more than 3 GB of RAM: "STOP 0x0000000A"
Basically during, after or at some point Vista will BSOD if you have more than 4gb of memory in your system.
You need to install 2gb or 3gb and install Vista then apply the patch and restart.
