Windows Vista Installation Issue
The computer in question:
Pentium D 3.0Ghz, 1GB RAM, 160GB SATA, ASROCK 775i65G motherboard, internal IDE DVD drive.
It was working perfectly fine with Windows XP.
I tried to format and install Windows Vista Ultimate. It completed the installation process and after the first reboot, it powers off automatically.
Tried both the 32 bit and 64 Bit versions of Vista Ultimate.
Updated BIOS, but still same issue.
Any pointers will be helpful guys!

generally such issues with Vista installation are due to the installation media (dvd) being corrupt/damaged. Is this an original dvd disc?

There are no scratches and its perfectly fine. The same DVD works fine on other computers.
The installation is completed without any errors, but after the restart, the computer power off (after it completes the initial booting/ BIOS checks)

Vista has hardware compatibility issues with older mother boards. I had a similar problem, which surfaced after a couple of months' usage, which was later diagnosed to be a faulty DDR RAM (1GB RAM out of total 2 GB RAM).
Have a compatibility check for your hardware and if you are using any Graphics card, remove and try.
Moreover, 2GB RAM is recommended for ultimate and premium editions.
