Default CrossFireX problems - advice appreciated

Black screen when booting up when both my 4870 and 4870X2 are installed.
X2 booted up no problem. Recognized in CCC and all that. Installed the 8.7 hotfix, restarted. Shut down, popped in the 4870, connected the CF bridge.

Powered on, nothing. Disconnected CF bridge, plugged DVI into 4870, and once I got to my desktop, got a popup informing me that no ATI graphics drivers could be found. Reinstalled the 8.7's. Shut down.
Reattached CF bridge, but kept DVI connected to 4870. CCC CrossfireX diagnostics tells me the link is not properly connected.

Asus P5E (x38)
E8400 @ stock
4gigs Mushkin DDR2 PC8000
Vista 32bit
Antec Quattro 850W

Have i missed something somewhere?
This is my first time trying a multi-GPU setup so be gentle please.
