Installing Vista Service Pack?
ScifiMike12 replied to Legolash2o's topic in vLiteI was trying to incorporate the latest SP1 onto my Vista Ultimate x86 drive via Virtual PC and kept coming up with 800F081F error. It happend right after it started to download SP1, got to about 13% downloaded, and then say this error. I tried several times. Made numerous different vLite'd disks with different settings but the same thing. It was not until just a minute ago that I released this: Since Bitlocker is required and that it's not "on" in my Virtual drive, that I kept coming up with this error. Also, the code resembles the one listed on this site. So, I'm going to go burn my image to a DVD and install on another parition on my HDD. Hopefully everything goes well and I can get this stupid thing to work.. :/ BTW, I'm loving SP1 on Vista Ultimate x64 (build 6001.17036, non-vLite'd). -Mike
Woo, sorry about that. I was replaying to another forum about a motherboard issue along with this window opened. Guess I got side-tracked.. Is it a USB external HDD or flash drive? I know I've gotten this issue with 2003 Server back in the day but i just had Windows install the generic driver.
You need to install your motherboard drivers.
Vista, RAM and Processor Hogger
ScifiMike12 replied to Nepali's topic in Windows Vistacurrently my VISTA is consuming 50% of RAM of 768 MB, then i disabled my un-necessary services including readyboost and superfetch as you beleive it will hogg all RAM but on the next reboot there isn't any difference still the same usage of RAM. 50 %. this is what the meaning of proper memory management ? Now the performance of vista on macbook, initial installation of any OS will obviously be faster. even XP on 128 MB or vista on 512 MB machine will be faster but with the period of time and third party software installation it will become slower. and you will face the same with your vista installation too. then again u have to apply some tweaks to boostup . You do realize that having those programs running in your taskbar is using up some memory usage. Heck, I would disable quick launch while your at it. See if that makes a small difference. Mike.
vLite using Dell Recovery DVD
ScifiMike12 replied to dustintinsley's topic in vLiteThe EXACT same thing is happening to me too with my Dell laptop OEM disk. I got an Dell OEM Ultimate disk with my laptop and when I try to vlite anything or change any of the settings I get an error when I'm doing a clean install. I don't think I will be able to use this program on my disk afterall.... EDIT: Nevermind.. holy crap am I stupid or just really tired atm because I found out that I was suppose to convert my ISO standard into UDF format. After I did this and ran Virtual PC to test the image it worked PERFECTLY! So my is now a Mike.
ScifiMike12 replied to dcyphure's topic in Windows VistaLast week when I was installing Ultimate on my laptop I reformatted twice to get the feel of the OS. First try was to see how well the default drivers would perform and the second was when I decided to use vLite to get rid of some of the annoying features (UAC, security messages, etc.). I did these attempts on the same day so when I was reinstalling the second time the person on the phone was asking me for my product key because they had recorded another attempt earlier from that same key (obviously me). No really biggie though. Mike.
Activate Aero glass and flip 3d in home basic?
ScifiMike12 replied to HeadHunter2's topic in vLiteWell first of all what version of Vista do you have? And second, you cannot get the 'glass' effect because if this is on your laptop, it does not support AERO. Mike.
