When you turn on your PC hit F8 to enter "Advance Boot Options" then choose "Disable automatic restart on system failure" and press Enter. Now when the bsod pops up it won't restart. :)

did you buy the computer whole or did you build it from scratch?
if you didn't build it from scratch then your Vista licence might be an OEM licence.
if that is the case then your Licence is now invalid and you have buy a new licence for another windows OS.
an OEM licence is invalid as soon as you change the motherboard and not transferrable to another system.
I had this happen to me after I upgraded my Mobo two months ago, (Vista begins to load then BSOD then restarts)
