Re: vista 64bit

Without the Bluescreen error is hard to determine why, but I guess may be becaus you're using 4Gb of RAM. Try installing XO/Vista using only 2 Gb, when finish try add the other 2Gb

In addition......
In order to get the OS to see and address the 4 Gigs you must take out 2 sticks as GioAguilar stated, leave them aside.  Install windows.  Then install the Microsoft Hotfix below so the additional 2 Gb will be seen and addressed. 
Lots more work but that's microsoft for you.
