well I used 2 good power supplys and it still is doing the same thing.
vista starts to load green bars go by, after that hangs on black screen.
if I disable 8800gt Nvidia card in device manager.
vista starts ok.

I was told by microsoft if it starts with the device disabled that it is a compatability issue with Nvidia's Drivers and the mother board.

Remeber I did try this on a msi board with the same chipset! 750i sli Nvidia.
the same thing happened with that board!
Great, way to go Nvidia
your chipset
your Video card
your Drivers
And I am wondering why it wont work. LOL.

Thanks for all your help peaple.
Just dont know what I am going to tell this customer. Im Twistin in the wind.

Well, MSI board is knows for this kind of issue with their bios. You're not the only one went through all the headache about this.
Could you try a different version of bios from msi website and see if it works for you. There were reports that this method worked on some MSI board.
